AC Milan and Real Madrid are negotiating the transfer of Dani Ceballos but the Spanish midfielder is not the only Blancos player on the market.
MILAN TRANSFER NEWS – Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are in Madrid. AC Milan want to bring at San Siro Spanish star Dani Ceballos. The 22 year-old central midfielder is currently busy with the Spain national team in the U-21 European Championship but he has already played his last match with Real Madrid.
The return of coach Zinedine Zidane means that there is no place for Ceballos in Madrid. Los Blancos value their midfielder at €50 million. A prohibitive figure for AC Milan who can not offer more than 40 million. However, Dani Ceballos is not the only Real Madrid player of interest for the Rossoneri.
After already investing 303 million euros for the signing of Hazard, Militao, Jovic, Mendy and Rodrigo, the Spanish giants need to sell some players in order to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play. Marca reports that there are currently 36 players in Zidane’s squad, a number that must be reduced significantly very soon.
According to the Spanish newspaper, except Ceballos, Real Madrid have put on the market Isco, Kovacic, Nacho Fernandez, Jesus Vallejo, Mariano Diaz, Theo Hernandez, Sergio Reguilon and Martin Odegaard. The 13-times Champions League winners are waiting official offers for these players.
While AC Milan can’t afford to spend a large fee for Bale or James Rodrigez, the Rossoneri are very intrigued by the possibility of signing Isco and Kovacic. It will all depend on Madrid’s economic demands and their willingness to accommodate Milan’s specific needs on transfer formula. However, it must be noted that Real Madrid and AC Milan enjoy a friendly relationship that can help any eventual negotiation.
