ML: Milan could reignite interest in €20-25m Juventus outcast – player would approve move

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could reignite their interest in Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral who seems to be heading towards leaving the club, a report claims.

According to MilanLive, the Turkish defender – struggling with various physical problems – is not a first choice for Andrea Pirlo and Juventus are reflecting on what to do with him.

The Bianconeri are thinking about the renewal of Giorgio Chiellini and the possible purchase of Pau Torres from Villarreal, which pushes Demiral away from Turin given there is also Bonucci and De Ligt.

Milan in the past have shown interest Demiral – who was pictured with friend and compatriot Hakan Calhanoglu a few weeks ago – and the report claims to be ‘sure that his name is still in the notebook of Maldini and Massara’.

His price tag has dropped significantly from when the Rossoneri wanted him and therefore €20-25million could be enough to make Juve sell but also fore his name to come back into fashion for Milan.

Musacchio’s farewell is practically certain and Tomori has six months to convince the company to invest €28million in him. For Demiral, therefore, things could yet take off again, while the report adds that player would approve the move.
