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.
