AC Milan are serious for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez and a meeting is scheduled between the two clubs.
Confirmations arrive on the concrete interest of AC Milan on Barcelona central midfielder Denis Suarez. The Spaniard who has fallen down the pecking order at Camp Nou is looking for a new adventure and does not intend to wait for the summer to change environment.
The Rossoneri need a new central midfielder. On Thursday evening, against Olympiacos in Europa League, the difficulties of Tiemoue Bakayoko were still evident. The French has yet to enter the Devil’s schemes and this is a big problem for Gennaro Gattuso. In that department the Rossoneri lack quality alternatives and it’s a factor that has influenced AC Milan season for a long time. In the summer the management thought they had filled the void with the purchase of the former Chelsea but his form has been disappointing so far.
AC Milan, according to the latest reports, have already initiated contacts with Barcelona for Denis Suarez. The advantage of the Rossoneri is the close relationship with Ariedo Braida, sporting director of the Blaugrana. However Leonardo was surprised by the high price tag Barça have slapped on the 24 year old: 50 million euros. The situation in reality is a bit more different, for obvious reasons. Denis Suarez pushes to leave, considering the limited space available, and the club could satisfy him by lowering their requests.
According to Calciomercato, the negotiation proceeds ahead and in the coming days a meeting is scheduled between Leonardo and Braida (Leonardo’s former mentor at Milan). Barcelona seems willing to accept a 40 million offer but it’s unclear if they would be ready to go lower. A very high figure, but Milan could “evade” with a loan proposal with the right or obligation to buy. One thing is certain: a player like Denis Suarez would bring additional quality in the squad but above all new technical alternatives for Gattuso.
