Jens Petter Hauge is one step away from leaving Milan for a fee of around €12m, and this will allow the Rossoneri to move on the market. Above all, the priority is to bring in a playmaker and James Rodriguez is an option.
According to today’s edition of Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, Jorge Mendes is on excellent terms with Milan and is pushing to bring Rodriguez there. After Carlo Ancelotti’s departure from Everton, the Colombian is keen on leaving.
Rodriguez himself has flirted with a move to Serie A and his agent is working on the matter. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are currently evaluating the option as they have some doubts about his physical strength.
The attacking midfielder, for his part, is willing to reduce his salary and settle for around €5m. And as for the transfer fee, Everton signed the player for free last year and their demands thus won’t be super high.
