AC Milan have been told that they could seal a deal for midfield target Marc Roca for a price €25m lower than his release clause, a report claims.
The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with a move for Roca over the past few weeks, and Espanyol’s relegation to the second tier of Spanish football appears to have confirmed that the 23-year-old will seek new pastures this summer.
According to Wednesday’s edition of the newspaper Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan have a concrete interest in signing Roca in the upcoming summer window as they want to reinforce the midfield ahead of next season.
No official offers have yet been made but the economic demands of the Catalan club have dropped considerably as they know nobody will pay the €40m release clause in Roca’s contract. Instead, at €15-16m the deal can be done.
