PM: €40m De Paul a Milan target as Raiola rumours are clarified – how a deal could be structured

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are keen on signing Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese as the situation regarding his representative has become clearer, a report claims.

The Argentine playmaker dragged Udinese to safety again this season amassing 18 goal contributions (9G, 9A) in 36 Serie A games, but now it seems that he is ready for the leap to a top club where he can compete for trophies.

PianetaMilan report that many have claimed De Paul is now a client of Mino Raiola, but according to their information the 26-year-old is not represented by him as he seems inclined to stay with his current entourage for the moment.

Milan are interested in De Paul, but it is clear that a possible passage of the player into Raiola’s hands would complicate things a lot after the Gianluigi Donnarumma affair. Beyond that, there remains the difficulty in the fact that Udinese want €40m to part with their jewel.

Maldini and Massara will try to lower the asking price by inserting a counterpart such as Tommaso Pobega. Nonetheless, the directors believe that De Paul may be the right name to improve the squad available to Stefano Pioli and De Paul is a target.

    So,…Raiola IS NOT his agent? Sign De Paul ASAP?

    Please sign Brahim Diaz instead…the kid has a higher ceiling. Let him and Hauge play more and grow in that position.

      We need 2 players and Diaz can’t play whole season on top, yet. He isn’t a top player yet, still a top talent. Calhanoglu will leave, 99%, so we need De Paul. If he isn’t Raiola’s we should get him, if he is, no.

    Augustin Jimenez is De Paul current agent. Maybe he want to switch Mino Raiola. If he want to play for Milan, he better off with the greedy Mino Raiola.
    Milan must not include Tommaso Pobega or Hauge in any transfer deals, we need this two youngsters next season and they need more minutes.
    It’s better they include Krunic, Conti, Laxalt, or Caldara in any deal transfer they want.
