AC Milan continue their summer’s madness as they are close to Alvaro Morata
AC Milan’s amazing summer transfer window looks set to continue, as according to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri already made an offer of €70m for Real Madrid’s striker Alvaro Morata. Milan’s CEO Marco Fassone said in a statement “It’d be nice to have one from Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. We’ll see who the choice lands on, even if there are also other names who haven’t been splashed on the front pages yet.” Feel free to check out our latest news and our best betting tips.
However, it seems that the first choice is the Spaniard and Milan are trying to persuade Morata for the second time this summer. Milan were in talks with Morata a month ago, but the 24-year-old striker said he could never betray his two years at Juventus by signing for rivals AC Milan. Chelsea are also interested on Morata and are prepared to offer €9m-a-season plus Champions League football. However, it seems that the Spaniard prefers a move back to Italy as Milan are ready to offer a salary worth €10m-a-season, which would make Morata the highest paid player in Serie A.
AC Milan have already spent over €200m this summer, having built an impressive squad with signings like Ricardo Rodriguez, Franck Kessie, Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Lucas Biglia, Hakan Calhanoglu, Andre Silva and the shock capture of Leonardo Bonucci from Juve last Friday.
Furthermore, reports from Germany are saying that Renato Sanches is set to join AC Milan from Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants’ chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed Milan’s interest on Sanches: “I can confirm that Milan have shown interest in Renato Sanches, but there is no agreement yet,” Bayern bought Sanches from Benfica last summer for €35 million on a five-year deal. After confirming Milan’s interest over Sanches, Rummenigge added: “I have the impression that AC Milan are not ready to meet our economic demands, and as long as (that is the case) nothing will be done.” The reported offer was a two-year loan for €7m with the option to buy in 2019 for another €40m.
