Tuttosport: Milan’s interest in Zaniolo scuppers Juve’s plans to offer swap

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made it known that they are interested in signing Nicolo Zaniolo from Roma which has scuppered the plans of Juventus, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.it), Juve still believe that Zaniolo has a lot of potential despite his serious injuries given that he is only 22 years of age and has bounced back well this season from his latest knee operation.

However, it is not at all a simple pursuit for the Bianconeri because they are not alone in their admiration for the Italy international. Zaniolo’s valuation is now around €50m and it has forced Juve to make new valuations.

The report claims that the Old Lady would like to lower this figure by inserting counterparts that would go to Roma but it is ‘a plan that risks being wrecked before starting’ because the Giallorossi know Milan are also keen so they will not accept a deal of this type.

Juve are also evaluating other alternatives such as Angel Di Maria and David Neres, who could help bolster the attack available to Massimiliano Allegri and leave the path to Zaniolo open.

  1. Zaniolo is wonderful. With him, Italy were champions of Europe; without him, they were knocked out of the world cup.

    1. zaniolo is indeed a great player but you do realize that he didn’t participate in the euros due to him being injured all season. right ?

  2. Zaniolo, DiMaria, Mahrez… any of these guys are obviously going to be a huge upgrade so I’m happy whatever happens.

  3. I think if you’re not italian and didn’t watch the euros or qualifiers you honestly shouldn’t talk cause you sound like a retard

  4. Another overrated overhyped Italian player.
    He plays as a second striker at Roma. At Milan he would have to play as a half wing on the right side, which means he ll have to track back and he is not known for doing that.
    Imagine having Leao on the left & Zaniolo on the right. Defensively we would leak goals because they wont run back and offensively we would lead the league in lost possessions. Plus whoever will play a striker will be mad because neither one of them passes the ball.

  5. Overprice player . 50m euro for player that both leg already got ACL, if just one leg maybe okay. Injury prone and physical not fit for high press system’ Pioli. Why not focus chasing Antony/nkunku that have same price with zaniolo
