Mediaset: Milan may frustrate Spurs and Aston Villa by performing U-turn on €32m star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could be set to disappoint Spurs and Aston Villa by postponing the sale of striker Krzysztof Piatek, a report claims.

The reliable Anto Vitiello reported last week that Spurs have concrete interest in Piatek along with with Aston Villa, West Ham and Bayer Leverkusen.

La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira meanwhile claimed that Tottenham have called on the help of intermediary Frank Trimboli to help them open talks, with reports of a €32m bid being readied from journalist Louis Girardi.

Everything seemed to points towards the exit door for Piatek, who joined a year ago from Genoa but has scored just one from open play this season so far.

However, according to a report from SportMediaset – as cited by – there may be a shock twist.

The outlet claims that head coach Stefano Pioli’s decision to change system to a 4-4-2 with two strikers up top could change Milan’s plans for the 24-year-old.

The outlet believes that Piatek could now stay at Milan beyond January, and that the club’s hierarchy could postpone his eventual farewell to the summer.
