Rai: AC Milan very keen on Pellegri; talks to open ‘in the coming hours’

By Oliver Fisher -

Monaco are set to open talks with AC Milan over a swap deal involving Andre Silva and Pietro Pellegri, it is claimed.

Silva’s future with Milan looks to be in danger, and the Portugal international was close to moving to Monaco in a €30m deal, but it ended up falling through over financial disagreements.

The striker still seems destined to leave the club this summer, and on Sunday it was reported that Monaco are still in fact interested in signing the former Porto man.

Now, a report from Rai Sport on Monday claims that the track leading Milan to Pietro Pellegri has ‘reopened in the last few hours’, and Silva could be the key to getting a deal done.

Their report states that the club’s leadership are very keen on Pellegri and a swap deal involving Silva is a possibility, with talks set to intensify ‘in the coming hours’.

Pellegri made his Genoa debut at the age of just 16, and he became the first player born in the 21st century to score a Serie A goal before joining Monaco in a €25million deal back in January 2018.
