AC Milan have been on the hunt for a new center back all summer long, with Mattia Caldara still out for the foreseeable future, and Matteo Musacchio simply is not cutting it. The club are now back in for a target from earlier in the window.
According to Sky Italia (as cited by Milannews.it), Milan are back in to sign Demiral from Juventus. After the first game of the season did not go as planned, the brass is quickly moving to fill the holes that were exposed.
When the Mercato first opened, Milan wanted to sign Merih Demiral, as reported by Di Marzio (cited by SempreMilan.com). One of the key obstacles was the price tag Juventus had placed on the player, whom they signed from Sassuolo just weeks prior for eighteen million Euros. Now they are demanding a figure in the region of forty million Euros.
The Sky Italia report goes on to claim Milan may have a decisive meeting with Juventus as soon as tomorrow. Milan are prepared to make an offer in the thirty-five million Euro range. Sassuolo does have a sell on clause so this figure may not be enough to satisfy all parties.
