Tuttosport: Barcelona demand €30m for Milan defensive target; the alternative costs €18m

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing to pursue a new option for the right side of the defence with two names in particular in mind, a report claims.

Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti have struggled for consistency all season leading to suggestions from a number of different media outlets that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will look to address the issue by signing a new starter.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan are continuing to keep an eye on Emerson Royal of Barcelona, who is currently on loan at Real Betis until 2021.

However, it will not be easy for the Rossoneri to sign the Brazilian, as the Blaugrana are asking for about €30million to let him leave considering they must pay Betis for the early termination of his loan.

The same outlet are reporting that PSV Eindhoven captain Denzel Dumfries is also a target and he will be a bit cheaper, as the Eredivisie side will ask for around €18m.
