MN: Milan’s interest in Zaniolo confirmed – Roma’s price and the truth about Juventus

By Oliver Fisher -

Confirmation has arrived from a reliable source that AC Milan are interested in signing Roma forward Nicolo Zaniolo, but it will not be easy.

According to MilanNews, Zaniolo is happy to learn of the interest of Milan but Roma – who do not want to strengthen a domestic rival if possible – are asking for €40m to sell the 22-year-old in the summer transfer market.

Both technical director Paolo Maldini and head coach Stefano Pioli approve of signing Zaniolo, who can play either as an attacking midfielder or as a right winger if needed.

Juventus’ interest has been registered in the last few months but the Bianconeri – with the passage of time – have become less and less concrete in their pursuit of the Italy international.

Zaniolo has suffered with repeated long-term injury problems despite his young age, and he managed 2 goals and 2 assists in the league last season for Roma, where he has a deal until 2024.

      1. To be very honest. What’s this nonsense Maldini is courting?

        Zaniolo is injury-prone and has the attitude of a spoilt brat.

    1. was going to post and saw you beat me to it….do not understand why we did not go after him, he had earlier showed interest in A.C. and I thought ,we secure the Scudetto and he is ours…..now rumors that he is going to Inter, pretty clear that Inter and Napoli are going to be our biggest threats even more reason to acquire him.

    2. I like to have a tall #10 but he would be perfect at the 10 for us, this is where we seemed to struggle, yes RW as well but that is partly do to fact that for the RW to be successful the 10 has to be a threat. Dybala would be perfect at 10

  1. IN
    CB – Bremer MF – Sanches RW – O.Dembele AMF – Nkunku FW – Belotti
    OUT
    Florenzi (Saladmaker can play RB), Romagnoli (if he wants to leave), Gabbia, B.Toure, Colombo, Caldara,

  2. Dembele is exactly what Milan need, the dude is underrated and he fits perfectly to our style of play at RW….he will be another leao at the right.

    Zaniolo is a good buy, I dont care about his attitude, we have kjaer, ibra and maldini for that….my problem Is If he wll get injured.

    I remember when Milan had 60m for belloti but Torino wanted 100m, time flies

    1. Dembele has been a total bust in Barca, constantly injured, and wherever he signs it won’t be for less than 10 mil a year. Milan isn’t paying that especially not for a player that isn’t someone you can count on to be available to perform week in week out

  3. so funny to read your posts, milan will play 4-3-3, there is no number 10, yes sometimes there are teams which stand with 10 men in the back a 10 is needed, for just a few games diaz or messias can fill that. CDK is really a very cool player but we need a RW like Kulusevski, but Milan Managment was in hibernation to that time. Di Maira is 34 an have 14mio salary – must be a joke. Zaniolo is a risk because of injury, if he stays fit a no brainer…
