CorSera: Milan and Inter set for a market derby as both want 21-year-old striker

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter are in a battle for the Scudetto on the field but they are also fighting for the same transfer target off the pitch, according to a report.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) writes that the two Milanese clubs have already started a duel for Julian Alvarez, the talented 21-year-old striker currently owned by River Plate but who could leave either in January or in the summer.

The cost of his transfer would be €20m due to the presence of a release clause in his current contract with River and while the Nerazzurri have a slight advantage in the race to land the Italy international, the game is wide open and the Rossoneri could move decisively at any point.

Alvarez racked up 18 goals and 7 assists in the league for Los Millonarios as they won the title, and it was reported recently by Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) that his agent Fernando Hidalgo has been in Italy to meet with the two clubs.

    Would be awsome… But no, we buy another defender.. why? We have good backups like gabbia and kalulu.. go all in for an attacker

      I agree kalulu has shown us he can play in rb/cb and should keep gabia and we should try to secure romain faivre. He is a top playmaker great on the ball and breaks the line with speed also Julian Alvarez in the striker department with good finish and good speed. With that said we would be painting 35$ million which I think is 200% worth it

    Honestly, I don’t know how serious we are about this guy but I’m not too optimistic about our chances. Also, we’ve got Colombo and erm… Pellegri whom I think we should sign permanently.

    Alvarez will not come to Milan. Too expensive, and the if Inter really are interested, then Inter’s argentinians will surely make him choose Inter. Earlier, Fabrizio Romano, wrote, however, that Inter was not interested.

    Anyways, a cheaper alternative would be Agustin Alvarez of Penarol – a player with similar charachteristics. He would cost us between 5-10 mill euros.

    Btw. Alvarez is not an Italy international…

    Why is Milan management too blind to notice that attacking reinforcement is needed, Alvarez and Faivre is needed, if Milan really wants to win the scudetto, Salamaker needs to be sold ASAP, this guy one goal in three season, yet Milan still retains him, that just horrible!!!

    1. AC says:

      We need Faivre desperately on the RW or we are not making too 4 or just making it he is only 15$ million cheap skates Milan are.

    2. Stam says:

      You guys really prefer scudetto over champions league?

      Because Faivre is not CL quality. No good clubs are interested in him, even we are undecided.

      Was better to keep Hauge although he also proved by now he is not that good.

      We have great fullbacks and should use them, then we would need to spend only on striker.

      We are not forced to play 4231 – in fact it looks good only in Italy where pressing is bad.

    Giờ thì tôi đã hiểu vì sao bao năm Asenan chỉ ganh đua ở top 4.
