Report: Boost for Man Utd as Milan turn down double Spurs swap deal for €38m star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have rejected a swap deal for striker Krzysztof Piatek involving two Spurs players, a report claims, giving hope to Manchester United.

The Poland international continues to be repeatedly linked with an exit in January having fallen out of favour with the Rossoneri, not even coming off the bench in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Udinese.

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Piatek is attracting interest from a number of clubs in England as well as one of Milan’s Serie A rivals.

He claims that Manchester United have asked to be kept update by Milan regarding potential developments surrounding the 24-year-old.

In addition, Ornstein – a well-respected journalist in England – states that Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has seen a swap deal offer rejected for the striker involving defender Juan Foyth and midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Aston Villa and Newcastle have also expressed an interest, he claims, while West Ham and Fiorentina are also keen on chancing their arm in the final 10 days of the window, though Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban are demanding a €38m fee.
