Tuttosport: Milan betting strongly on De Paul as Hauge could lower outlay – the alternatives

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are dreaming big this summer and have made Rodrigo De Paul their main attacking target, a report claims.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes that the increasingly probable farewell of Hakan Calhanoglu on a free transfer means that Milan need a replacement who can act as an attacking midfielder in the tried and tested 4-2-3-1 of Stefano Pioli.

The profile that most arouses the interest of the Rossoneri is that of Rodrigo De Paul, also wanted by Juventus and Atletico Madrid. Udinese want €35-40m for the 27-year-old but would also accept less money if there was the opportunity to insert a welcomed counterpart, such as young winger Jens Petter Hauge.

De Paul is therefore the Rossoneri’s first choice, but there are possible alternatives such as Papu Gomez – who would like to return to Italy from Sevilla – and Josip Ilicic of Atalanta. Both would be low-cost operations. Finally, Milan hope to be able to keep Brahim Diaz and will soon resume contacts with Real Madrid.

    Selling Hauge would be a mistake…he is 7 yrs younger and can improve

    Guys I was thinking about our transfer market
    Sign
    Belotti/Icardi and Giroud/Scamacca/Mariano(3rd choice).(Forward)

    Depay/Rodrigo and one of Pessina/Diaz.(No 10)

    Shaqiri and Amine Adli. (the right wing)

    Naby Keita/Gilmour and bring back Pobega( Midfield)

    Milinkovic( if Romanogli leaves) and give Conti & laxalt anoda chance since they will be back ups.

    What do you guys think?
