Sandro Tonali will soon be sold to Newcastle United in a club record deal but Davide Frattesi will not be his replacement, according to a report.
As reported by SportMediaset (via PianetaMilan), Milan could earn as much as €80m from Tonali’s sale when factoring in bonuses which gives them a nice amount of cash to rebuild the midfield with.
Frattesi from Sassuolo will not be the man who comes in to replace Tonali, however. Although Milan may well be interested he is not seen as a player with the right characteristics to directly replace his compatriot.
On the contrary, the Rossoneri management are very keen on Tijjani Reijnders of AZ Alkmaar, while another name is Florentino Luís of Benfica who is believed to be valued at around €40m.
Luca Marchetti of Sky stated last night that Milan have made AZ Alkmaar star Reijnders one of their priorities for the midfield and that he could leave for €18m, which is negotiable.
