AC Milan have not yet made a bid for Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig despite reports suggesting the contrary, according to one journalist.
PianetaMilan reported yesterday that manager Ronald Koeman has accused Puig of being a mole in the locker room which is why in January he could leave, and Paolo Maldini is alert to the opportunity.
Milan want to take advantage of their excellent relationship with Barcelona to start an interesting operation, with an offer of a loan for 18 months with an obligation to buy set at €13m having been sent as per the source.
According to Marco Conterio of TMW on Twitter, to date there is no confirmation of an offer from Milan for Puig.
He adds that while the midfielder does not enjoy a very good relationship with Koeman – something which could in theory facilitate a negotiation – there is no official proposal from the Rossoneri as of yet.
The 21-year-old is not in the plans of Koeman who has given him just 77 minutes of action so far this season divided into four appearances between the Champions League and LaLiga.
