Report: Milan ready to offer up two centre-backs in player-plus-cash deal for Celtic star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to offer Celtic two defenders plus cash in exchange for Kristoffer Ajer, according to a report.

It was reported by Calciomercato.com on Friday that Ajer is the most concrete target for Milan in terms of defensive reinforcements.

The SEG agency, who looks after the interests of the 22-year-old, are in constant contact with the leaders of the Rossoneri and the intention is to start negotiations.

They added that Celtic are asking for €20million and Milan are carefully evaluating all the economic parameters of the possible operation. His salary fits perfectly into Elliott’s policy, and the player will leave this summer.

However, the Sunday Post are reporting that Milan are willing to increase their bid for the Norwegian to £22.4m (€25m) and throw in Matteo Gabbia and Mateo Musacchio to get the deal done.

Musacchio has been a bit-part player for Milan this season and has struggled with injuries, while Gabbia impressed upon his breakthrough into the senior side but continues to be linked with a loan exit.

    This doesn’t make the slightest sense at all. Why? Because if Celtic are asking for € 20 million, Why would Milan raise their to 22 million sterling, plus on top class CB (Musacchio) and one bright talent in Gabbia? Both are worth together are worth at least €20 million.

    I suspect this i just a publicity stunt to force a sale and maximise profits. This happens to Milan more than any other clubs because people take Milan for granted, not least agents and players who have been taking advantage of the club. AC Milan is no longer a push over. That ended when Elliot stepped in. Even Mino and everyone has been quiet. Only Zlatan can afford to talk because he is Zlatan and he is almost finished. But i feels pretty nice that Zlatan and Mino can not boss the Milan management around anymore. Nobody can any more. And that includes not overpaying for unestablished players.
