MN: Milan will try until the end to sign Botman as he wants to keep ‘promise’ to Maldini

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan refuse to give up on the idea of signing Sven Botman from Lille and Paolo Maldini is pushing for a positive conclusion, a report claims.

MilanNews reports that although Newcastle has presented a higher offer to Lille for the defender, Botman continues to keep the ‘promise’ he made with Milan and with Maldini specifically, who is the number one admirer. one of the Dutchman.

Maldini and Ricky Massara absolutely want to sign Botman who has always been the number one target to reinforce Stefano Pioli’s rearguard and will remain so right until the end. Today’s news suggests Newcastle have started probing other profiles, given their hurry to bring in new players.

The Magpies are evaluating the situation from day to day, and given that Botman does not seem willing to accept a transfer to them they could abandon their pursuit, but Milan are likely to have to raise their offer to Lille.

      In the interview last month, Maldini seems not enthusiastic when he was asked about Botman, he just said that they followed (not currently following?)
