Mediaset: Milan unable to make breakthrough in talks with Chelsea over €40m man

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are struggling to find a breakthrough in talks with Chelsea for Hakim Ziyech, according to a report.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanLive), Milan are battling to unlock the Ziyech situation but they have made little progress due to a very simple reason: the Rossoneri are willing to sign him on loan with an option to buy, but Chelsea will not entertain that idea.

The Blues have spent a lot of money in recent years with signings and now would like to raise some cash through sales. Ziyech cost €40m plus bonuses when he signed from Ajax and they do not want to risk a loss, but at the same time are unwilling to give the player away on loan.

Milan may have to abandon their pursuit of the 28-year-old, but it cannot be ruled out that in the very last days of August the Premier League side may ever so slightly open the door, and Paolo Maldini would be ready to pounce.

  1. Such a talented player, but should be out of Milan’s price range this year – would prefer them to look at Vlasic, van der Beek, Kvaratskhelia, Tsygankov or Ikoné instead – all younger players with potential to increase in value – if they can afford to be in the market for Ziyech, they can be in the running for any of these players.

    Personally, I don’t think any are affordable at the moment though.

  2. No shit lol. He costs 40m. Seems we are waisting time unless Chelsea changes course and let’s him leave on a loan. Sign Kamara, Adil and Ikone for RW. Kamara can play CB and DM and Adil can play both DM and ACM. Both are young but already have experience and have huge upside and huge resale value $$$. Ikone would be fantastic as well, young dynamic and high resale value. All 3 fit managements approach. We should be able to get a favorable deal from Lille for Ikone being that we also own part of them. Sell Castillejo Conti Krunic and Romagnoli (if he doesn’t sign extension before season starts).
