AC Milan face competition from Barcelona in the race to sign Sampdoria jewel Mikkel Damsgaard this summer, according to a report.
Gianluca Di Marzio told Calciomercato L’Originale on Sky Italia (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri have taken a concrete interest in signing Damsgaard, who continues to shine at the European Championships with Denmark.
According to a report from Calciomercato.com, Damsgaard’s goal on Monday night against Russia – as well as another excellent performance – means that his asking price is rising. Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero knows it too, as he remarked to Il Secolo XIX: “Did you see that Damsgaard goal? I’ll tell you his fair price, today at least 30 million. But if he scores again he will reach 40.”
Sampdoria hopes to trigger an auction, because there is no shortage of interested Italian clubs while in the Premier League teams have become attentive to Damsgaard, and even Barcelona have carried out a first enquiry. They had scouts there on Monday, showing that they are monitoring the performance of the Dane in person.
