Sky: Milan unlikely to land Napoli striker for one key reason as Atletico Madrid circle

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘unlikely’ to be able to sign Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik this summer, a report claims, with a move abroad seemingly favoured.

It is no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new centre-forward given the doubts over the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose deal expires at the end of the month.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that the Milan management have identified two strikers who may be of use to Ralf Rangnick, who it was confirmed last night is set to arrive as manager.

Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic is one of the names, while Milik of Napoli is the other – both of whom will change clubs at the end of the season.

According to Sky Italia though (via MilanLive), a farewell to an international destination seems to be the most likely option for the latter.

It cannot be excluded that the Pole signs a renewal before moving so Napoli can get more money from his sale, with Atletico Madrid and Schalke mentioned as having interest.

However it is unlikely that Milan will be a serious suitor. The costs of the operation appear out of reach for CEO Ivan Gazidis and the club’s project, which is more oriented towards a young and less expensive striker such as Luka Jovic.
