CM: Samardzic expected to fetch over €20m – background on Milan’s interest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan can only watch on as Lazar Samardzic seems to be closing in on a move to Napoli, according to a report. state that the first exploratory contacts between the representatives of the midfielder and the Partenopei took place to set up a negotiation with a view of next summer. Cristiano Giuntoli wants to stay ahead of the competition from Serie A and foreign clubs by trying to secure a deal for the Udinese talent.

Samardzic was originally a playmaker but he is exceeding at Udinese in a deeper role, showing his technical quality and penchant for shooting from distance. Udinese know that they can make at least €20m from his sale, and Milan may be kicking themselves.

They were following the German U21 international closely – just like they are many players in that side – and could have signed him for the €500k release clause in his contract at old club Hertha Berlin.

Samardzic met Maldini and Massara in Milano with his whole family, but then nothing came of it. Meanwhile, Udinese are now looking forward to yet another big capital gain.

  1. More interesting is their central midfielder, Sandi Lovric.
    I wish Milan could look at him to beef up our midfield behind Tonali and Bennacer

  2. I like wen are linked with a player thar we dont sign and then he starts playing well at is next club and start talking about is value at the moment but the true is just because they had impact from start at x club does not mean he would have the same impact at AC Milan for exemple Enzo at Benfica had a starting spot guaranteed at Milan he would have to fight with Tonali and Bennacer for a spot in the sarting 11 and the adaption to Portugal seem to be easier for players from South America has they spend like 2 to 3 seasons there and then go to stronger teams from other leagues!

    1. True in Milan he would fight for a place but Milan need players with the same quality as tonali and bennacer so they can fight way better to get the scudetto again or get even better in cl krunic messias gabbia ballo toure origi are very mediocre players to try for another scudetto or better place in cl so they need to try for samardzic or they should have for enzo or Ndicka Or botman

  3. They’re going to publish an article like this for every single player we’ve ever scouted (which must be hundreds) and didn’t sign, after they start playing well, so that all the clickbait victims can have their little meltdowns.
