AC Milan have initiated contacts with Lille for both Renato Sanches and Sven Botman as they seek to complete a double transfer, a report claims.
As has been reported by Le10sport in France (via Milan News), the Rossoneri have started negotiating for Sanches and Botman who have both been linked with the club for a very long time.
Whilst they are trying to get the deals in order for the two players, nothing overly official is likely to happen until the takeover from RedBird Capital Group is made official.
Bids or contract offers are almost never made by clubs when a takeover is in process as funds are usually frozen.
It is believed that Portuguese midfielder Sanches can add some extra attacking bite to the Milan midfield whilst Botman can provide some much needed quality depth as Alessio Romagnoli looks set to leave for a club like Lazio or Inter.
