Romano: Management uncertainty forces Milan to put deal for €20m playmaker on hold

By Oliver Fisher -

The proposed deal which would see Racing Club midfielder Matias Zaracho arrive at Milan this summer is currently on standby, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been persistently linked with a move for Zaracho since last summer, and‘s Fabrizio Romano notes that the interest was very much mutual between the player and the club.

The playmaker has already given his approval regarding a move to Europe, and the Milan option has intrigued him for some time after having demonstrated his qualities in South America. The idea of playing in Serie A is one that appeals greatly and his cost would be fully in in line with Milan’s plans.

However, the situation is now frozen and not only because of the Coronavirus. The management of Racing has understood that with the farewell of Zvonimir Boban as technical director the strategies could change entirely.

It will now be necessary to see what the management looks like ahead of an important offseason for the Rossoneri, so Milan have asked for time and no official negotiations have started with Racing.

The Argentine club for their part value Zaracho at €20million, so now it all boils down to whether or not the Diavolo wish to firm up their interest.
