AC Milan have outlined their stance as they are braced for an attempt from Saudi Arabia to sign Ismael Bennacer, a report claims.
It was reported yesterday by Nabil Djellit of France Football that a Saudi club have identified and contacted Bennacer regarding a possible move to the Saudi Pro League.
According to what is being reported by Sky (via PianetaMilan), the interest from Saudi Arabia has been confirmed and the Rossoneri management are ready to listen to offers in the January transfer window.
However, they would only sit at the negotiating table if bids arrive exceeding €50m which is higher than the value of Bennacer’s release clause, one that only becomes active from July 2024.
The reason that a move is being lined up for the winter because of the fact that the midfielder is currently injured and will be out for the next few months after an operation to repair his knee cartilage.
