AC Milan are strongly interested in Valencia teenager Jordi Escobar, a report claims, with a contract ready.
The Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have thus far deployed a recruitment strategy focused on buying young players with high potential and developing them in order to record capital gains on the balance sheet.
According to Salva Gomis of TribunaVFC and Radio Esport, Milan are ready to ‘strongly bet’ on Jordi Escobar, a player who was close to leaving in January but whose exit was ultimately blocked by the LaLiga side.
Milan are ready to offer him a first team role and a good contract, and while the 18-year-old’s priority remains to stay at the Mestalla, but he would not block an exit.
Escobar plays predominantly as a centre-forward and has three goals plus one assist for Valencia’s youth side across both the league and the UEFA Youth League, where has has scored twice in three games.
El AC Milan apuesta fuerte por Jordi Escobar. Estuvo cerca de salir en enero pero el VCF bloqueó su salida. Ahora, el conjunto 🇮🇹 le ofrecería primer equipo y un buen contrato.
