Di Marzio: Paratici offered four Spurs players to Milan in meeting with Maldini

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Spurs met on the field last night but away from the pitch the two clubs have also spoken at length about the transfer market.

Gianluca Di Marzio recalls a meeting last July 21st between Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara of Milan and Fabio Paratici of Spurs, during which the latter wanted to offer four players to the Rossoneri with six weeks left in the window.

The first was Japhet Tanganga, as Milan were looking for a centre-back after the departure of Alessio Romagnoli. They tried for a loan with option to buy but never found an agreement and thus Maldini turned to Schalke’s Malick Thiaw.

The other names put on the table by Paratici were left-back Sergio Reguilon plus midfielders Tanguy Ndombele and Pepe Matar Sarr. The Rossoneri decided to take some time to evaluate, closing the signing of Charles De Ketelaere in the meantime.

The profile they liked most was Sarr for his potential and though they probed the ground, a deal was eventually done for Aster Vranckx with Wolfsburg and thus none of the names talked about ended up arriving.

  1. Go back this summer and get Sarr. He was Tottenham best player in the 1st game and we desperately need a player in the midfield with his characteristics.
