Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has once again proclaimed the asking price of Mikkel Damsgaard to be north of €30million amid links with Milan.
This morning’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive) reported that directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to close a deal for Damsgaard, but will have to hurry up due to the increasing competition and the fact his market value market value is set to rise.
At the moment it seems as though a €20-25m to buy the 20-year-old, but that figure could soon rise to €30m because of the performances he is putting in for Denmark at the European Championships. The paper added that Rafael Leao could be sacrificed for €20m in order to sign Damsgaard.
Ferrero spoke to Rai GR Parliament and was asked about the future of Damsgaard after such a breakout tournament, and he certainly has not downplayed the winger’s price tag.
“The presidents have to settle down, otherwise there is no market. Damsgaard is not for sale because I want to reach a valuation of 30 to 50 million euros. He is a pure talent,” he said (via MilanLive).
