CM: Udinese duo want to show off against Milan amid market rumours – the Rossoneri’s stance

By Oliver Fisher -

Beto Betuncal and Gerard Deulofeu are likely to be Udinese’s front two against AC Milan tonight, and the game carries a bit of background for both. reports how Beto was one of the great protagonists of the 1-1 draw at the DACIA Arena in the reverse fixture earlier this season as he scored the goal with which the Bianconeri took the lead in the 17th minute before Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalised in the 92nd minute.

The Portuguese striker spoke of his admiration for Ibrahimovic who is one of his idols, recalling their chat earlier in the season: “Against Milan I was excited because I played against Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he told me ‘keep it up like you are strong’. I said ‘thank you, this moment is a dream for me’. I could not swap my shirt with his because everyone else wanted his, I was only able to take a picture.”

That was back 11 December and in the following days there was talk of a possible interest from Milan in Beto, but in actual fact the 24-year-old still does not fully convince the Rossoneri management.

Udinese have to pay a sum between €10-13m to sign him permanently from the Portuguese side Portimonense and if he is bought then Milan will keep an eye on him next season.

Meanwhile Gerard Deulofeu was at Milan on loan between January and June 2017 and he would like to return to the Rossoneri before the end of his career, as he has revealed in interviews. He has 6 goals in 17 appearances, but at the moment it seems Milan have other priorities.

  1. so if udinese has the obligation to pay 10-13 mil euros to Portimonense then its pretty fairly safe to assume that udinese would want propably minimum in the vicinity of 25 mil as he is an important player for them scoring a lot of goals that can be the difference between them playing in serie a or serie b. That makes him diufficult to replace and as i doubt milan would entertain such demands unless he doubles his tally in the following months to come i doubt this is nothing but mere suggestions in the media. Add to that we will clearly need to get a marquee signing for the midfield when kessie leaves and potentially add a cb or two on top of that so i doubt we will end up buying any attackers besides of getting belotti for free which in my opinion is the currently best option available anyways.

      1. Even if so, udinese would propably not sell him for less than 20 mil. Maybe if they get relegated theres a chance to get him at a spot price but i really doubt he is currently a target fr us.
