AC Milan have set new asking prices for out-of-favour duo Krzysztof Piatek and Lucas Paqueta, according to a report.
We reported via our mercato expert Vito Angele earlier on Thursday that Milan are experiencing a stalemate at the moment with regards to the mercato, due to their failure to find new clubs for Paqueta, Piatek and Suso.
The comments from Piatek’s father earlier on Friday confirmed that the Rossoneri are looking to ship out a number of players between now and the end of the window, with his son being one of them.
According to SportMediaset – as cited by MilanNews.it – Paqueta is afraid of losing his spot in the Brazilian national team ahead of the Copa America later this year.
His agent was at Casa Milan earlier this week to talk about the fact that his client is not playing much. The report adds that PSG are always at the window, but the Rossoneri want at least €30m in order to avoid a capital loss on the balance sheet. The Ligue 1 giants, however, are not currently willing to shell out that amount.
Regarding the future of Piatek, the position of Maldini and Boban is very clear: the Polish centre-forward can only leave if a bid of €30m or more arrives.
The Athletic recently reported that Piatek is attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Spurs, Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham United.
