Mediaset: Milan pushing hard for De Paul – Hauge plus cash could seal the deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing to push hard for Rodrigo De Paul as Hakan Calhanoglu’s potential replacement, according to a report.

SportMediaset (via MilanNews) writes how the farewell of Hakan Calhanoglu is noiw almost certain as he who will not renew his contract with Milan expiring on June 30th, so Maldini and Massara are looking for a new number 10 to replace him.

The most concrete name is that of De Paul, and Udinese are asking for at least €35m for the Argentine. The Rossoneri are trying to raise cash with the sale of some players who have returned from the loan such as Diego Laxalt and Andrea Conti, but they could also try and reduce the asking price by inserting a counterpart into the deal.

The name of Jens Petter Hauge emerges in this regard, a profile that is very appealing to the Friulian clubs. The Norwegian is valued by Milan at around €12m, so a €23m-plus-Hauge bid – we can infer – may well be enough.

  2. Br says:

    Noooo do not include hauge

  3. Abbas says:

    Hauge is a player with a lot of potentials.He shouldnt leave the club.Let catillejo be used in transfer to secure Dear Paul.

    Then let Pulisic,DYBALA and Icardi join our attack to challenge in the UCL

  4. Stephenos says:

    No to Hauge. He has a bright future and should be left to develop and grow.

  5. Stephenos says:

    We can’t afford to make the same mistake on Andre Silva’s deal

  6. Rassh flower says:

    Include another player and leave hauge. See a lot potential in that lad or include a buy back clause in the deal

  7. Roses says:

    Why does the signing always seem uncertain for which player to be part of the negotiation.

  8. Cage says:

    Why is the management so bent on sending Hauge away? Am not getting it at all.

  9. Ahmed Mohammed says:

    Pioli doesn’t like Hauge,he should be the one to tell them not to include Hauge in any deal, Hauge is a future star

  10. Nb_HMO says:

    Leave Hauge out of this deal please! Is any of the management getting to read response on this issue? We the fans are against the club selling Hauge. #forzaMilan

    Do not touch JPH at all. Let him grow and become superstar one day.

  12. Roses says:

    And today JPH will probably be starter in this upcoming match against luxembourg. If he shows great qualities, maybe management will change their mind.

  13. JT says:

    Don’t abandon JPH! I think that would be a MAJOR mistake. If this club is about the younger players, why doesn’t JPH fit that? His style of play (not decidedly Italian,) youth, and obvious massive potential should make him incredibly desirable for Milan’s project (more so than Tonali, I feel.)

  14. RF says:

    How about Pioli plus?
