Report: Piatek regrets Milan move; is desperate to join Real Madrid – Jovic swap possible

By Oliver Fisher -

Striker Krzysztof Piatek regrets his decision to join AC Milan in January and is now pushing for a move to Real Madrid, a report claims.

The Rossoneri signed the Poland international from Genoa in the January window for a fee of €35million after he had netted 12 league goals for Genoa in the first half of the season. He went on to add another nine for Milan.

However, Piatek has had somewhat of a goal drought so far this season, scoring just once from open play and failing to take his opportunities when preferred up front over Rafael Leao.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via reported earlier on Saturday that Milan are considering putting the striker on the market, and he could leave on loan to regain his confidence with Genoa interested.

According to a shock report from Don Balon however, the idea of a move to Real Madrid is not completely out of the question as they need a back up for Karim Benzema.

The Spanish outlet states that ‘there is no day that passes when Krzysztof Piatek does not regret the decision he made almost a year ago’, when offers were on the table from Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, Manchester United, Monaco, Napoli and Roma.

The report adds that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez also contacted him to let him know that they were interested, even offering Mariano Diaz as part of the deal, but Piatek wanted to be a guaranteed starter and chose Milan.

Piatek has apparently now reached out to Real Madrid to let them know he will do anything to sign for them, including lowering his salary, and Luka Jovic could move the other way as part of a deal.
