The AC Milan mercato is in full swing with less than two weeks until the season opener against Udinese.
Paolo Maldini, Ricky Massara and the rest of the club hierarchy have added five players so far this summer for a combined €90million: namely Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer and Leo Duarte.
BRUNO FERNANDES – Mazzara claims that Maldini met with the player’s agent a few weeks ago, however at present there is nothing concrete despite reports suggesting otherwise.
Sporting CP value their star playmaker at €70million and unless Jorge Mendes can pull off an imaginative operation – possibly one including André Silva – then it will remain an incredibly difficult operation.
ANGEL CORREA – This week, talks are expected to resume between Milan and Atletico with the hopes of finally striking a deal.
The distance between offer and valuation remains at €10million (€45m to €55m), but Maldini has the yes of the player and hopes that, in the long run, Atletico will give in.
ANTE REBIC – Links emerged with the Eintracht Frankfurt playmaker on Sunday as a potential alternative to Correa.
The Croatia international – who has has also been linked with Inter – is apparently rated at €40m, but MilanNews insist he is not currently a player who is being considered by Milan.
SUSO – The Spaniard is ‘at the centre of a constantly evolving situation’, the report claims, despite coach Marco Giampaolo’s wishes to keep him.
DIEGO LAXALT – Laxalt is apparently attracting interest from a number of clubs including SPAL, who have identified him as a replacement for Diego Fares.
Torino are also interested but Milan have made their demands clear: a loan deal would be acceptable but only with obligation to buy set at €12-13million.
IVAN STRINIC – SPAL have also enquired about Strinic amid doubts over his future with the Rossoneri, however there is currently nothing concrete.
