Tuttosport: €38m AC Milan man given five games to save future amid exit links

By Oliver Fisher -

Krzysztof Piatek has been given five games to prove to the AC Milan hierarchy that he deserves to stay at the club, according to a report.

MilanNews.it recently reported that the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic means that Milan will consider offers that will arrive for Piatek in January with a valuation starting from €35million, or a slightly higher figure.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed on Thursday that Roma and Milan have had talks in recent days about a possible swap deal involving Piatek and Diego Perotti.

Friday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by MilanNews.it – runs headline: ‘Piatek is waiting: 5 games under scrutiny’. 

The arrival of Ibrahimovic threatens to reduce Piatek’s game time as well as the Rossoneri’s dependency on him. As a result, the paper claims that the 24-year-old has the next four league games plus the Coppa Italia match against SPAL to convince Milan that he can still be important to them.

Piatek has just one goal from open play all season and has struggled for form.
