GdS: Zaniolo ‘happy’ with Milan and Juventus links but Roma persist with huge price

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still among the clubs keeping an eye on the situation of Roma winger Nicolo Zaniolo despite the high asking price, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report that no concrete offers have arrived just yet and Roma have set their demands at €60m in cash, therefore without counterparts, in order to sell the Italy international.

The player for his part would like to try a new experience in a club that will challenge for major honours but Zaniolo is not interested in the idea of a move to England with Tottenham and Newcastle United pressing. Milan and Juventus are keen, but as mentioned they have not made a bid.

The renewal issue remains blocked too for the time being given Zaniolo’s contract expires in 2024 and if he remains into next season then talks will begin over an extension, but the forward wants a Pellegrini-level salary.

During an interview with the paper he was asked about the interest from other clubs and admitted he is flattered by it.

“The interest of the big teams makes me happy: if they think of you it means that you are worth it. It does not distract me or make me go crazy. Rather I train even more motivated: I want to show that it is right to be associated with these top clubs,” he said.
