AC Milan are interested in signing Tete from Shakhtar Donetsk as an attacking reinforcement, according to a report.
Radio Rossonera reported last month that Milan scouts have laid eyes on Mateus Cardoso Lemos Martins, better known as Tete, who plays for Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine. He made 24 appearances in the league, scoring 6 goals and adding 3 assists.
According to the latest from PianetaMilan, Maldini and Massara’s intention is to secure an upgrade on the right wing and the interest in Tete is concrete. Contacts between the Rossoneri and the player’s entourage have been going on for several weeks as he has all the characteristics they want.
The Brazilian has a contract expiring in 2023 and according to Transfermarkt has a valuation of €20m. The non-arrival of Kaio Jorge – who will join Juventus – could push Milan to focus seriously on Tete because a non-EU spot is still available.
To sign Tete however it would first be needed to sell Samu Castillejo, who has an asking price of around €8m and some admirers in Spain.
