AC Milan are back on the trail of Andrea Belotti but have learned of a very high asking price for the striker, according to a report.
Today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes that Milan have been knocking on Torino’s door for Belotti once again because the fact Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be out for two months after surgery has forced the management to look around.
The Swede should be back in time for the start of the season, but he will turn 40 in the upcoming campaign and Milan need a striker who offers certain physical guarantees. Belotti would be the ideal profile for Milan and for Pioli’s 4-2-3-1, but the Granata want €34m to let him leave despite the fact his contract expires in a year.
The Rossoneri have no intention of investing such a sum and nor do Roma, another club interested in Belotti. It cannot be excluded that the Torino president Urbano Cairo may grant a discount if he does not receive offers of this magnitude, and if a renewal does not seem likely.
