AC Milan have set the conditions needed for the potential signing of Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea with negotiations underway, a report claims.
Ziyech was first linked with a switch to Milan last summer but the negotiations never got to an advanced stage as Thomas Tuchel decided to keep the former Ajax man and count on him for the 2021-22 season.
However, Ziyech was not used as much as he would have liked in the last campaign which had caused speculation to resurface regarding a potential exit, with Milan again mentioned among the interested clubs.
Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) confirms Milan’s interest in Ziyech, but they would only be interested under the following conditions: a paid loan of around €5m with an obligation to buy set at around €20m.
This is the only formula with which the Rossoneri can enjoy the tax advantages of the Growth Decree which would help ease the blow of Ziyech’s €5.5m per season net salary.
