Mediaset: Vlasic pursuit difficult due to €30m asking price – three alternatives emerge

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s interest in Nikola Vlasic is strong but they have been met with the high demands of CSKA Moscow to sell, according to a report.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Milan’s attention on the market is always focused on the attacking midfielder position as Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara look to give head coach Stefano Pioli a quality playmaker to replace Hakan Calhanoglu.

For Vlasic, the request of CSKA Moscow is always very high and the valuation of €30m makes it more unlikely that the Croatia international will join Milan this summer, as they are unable to pay that amount.

The alternative targets have all been linked before: Hakim Ziyech of Chelsea, Isco of Real Madrid and James Rodriguez of Everton. All three remain in the Rossoneri’s notebook, but there is now just two weeks left for Maldini and Massara to complete the squad available to Pioli.

  1. Please journalist should stop posting this ridiculous news about milan. If €30m is too much for Milan to buy a quality player, then it’s end for them. For the sake of the fan please stop posting this kind of terrifying news about milan.

  2. €30m is not high, though, if Vlasic played in the premier league he would cost 3 times more, in fact I think the €30m is very fair considering the market and the type of player he is; now if Milan doesn’t have that money or doesn’t want to pay that for Vlasic, that’s another thing but CSKA’s demands are not high, they’re very reasonable. We wouldn’t give Kessie or Theo away for a loan deal with €20m buying option either, so I understand CSKA’s stance.

  3. Am very glad to be a milanista. After the imminent acquisition of adli and florenzi, Please maldini and massara I think you should go for berardi of sassuolo for the right wing, bakayoko of Chelsea to balance the midfield and then try and conclude deals for vlasic and jovic of real Madrid so as to add the effective depth that our attack is currently crying out for.

  4. Buying players and not selling out is the problem Milan is facing now due to FFP. Maldini and Massara should just sign Sabitzer, Florenzi, Berardi and Bakayoko or Adli.
