AC Milan continue to nurture their relationship with Jorge Mendes and now, after Andre Silva, the famous agent is pushing another of his talents towards the Rossoneri.
Many are the players being linked with the Rossoneri this summer but so far only Pepe Reina and Ivan Strinic are the only two official signings, both on a free transfer. Today news has emerged directly from the Portuguese press: it seems that AC Milan are interested in Ruben Dias. The talented Portuguese centre back is just 21 years old and currently plays in Benfica and with whom he has a contract until June 2022.
This season was the first of Dias with the first team and he managed to play 31 games throughout the year, including 24 in the domestic League and 2 in Champions League scoring 4 goals and cementing his status as a regular.
His price tag at this time is prohibitive. According to rumors, Benfica’s rating is about 40 million euros. An exaggerated figure, certainly prohibitive for AC Milan who do not have much need to intervene in defense unless one between Alessio Romagnoli or Leo Bonucci decides to depart this summer. The mastermind behind this operation is the player’s agent Jorge Mendes, who is pushing the Rossoneri to invest in the talented defender.
