PSG to make €100 million offer for AC Milan duo

Corriere dello Sport reports that PSG sporting director Leonardo is willing to invest €100 million in two AC Milan players.

Despite the disappointing form of AC Milan, former sporting director Leonardo is interested in doing shopping at his old club. According to Corriere dello Sport, PSG and AC Milan continue to negotiate the transfer of Lucas Paqueta but Leonardo is hopping for a double signing.

The Italian newspaper reveals that PSG have offered €80 million for both Lucas Paqueta and Alessio Romagnoli plus bonuses that can raise the total fee up to €100 million. PSG are reportedly willing to match AC Milan’s €35 million rating of Lucas Paqueta only if Romagnoli is included in the deal.

Leonardo is well aware of AC Milan’s economic problems and is trying to touch the right strings to draw his targets in France. The PSG sporting director is hoping that a tempting economic package could be enough to convince Maldini to let go two of AC Milan’s most prized assets.

The Rossoneri are willing to sell the Brazilian attacking midfielder if their recoup their investment in the former Flamengo. However, the situation is different on Alessio Romagnoli. The former Roma defender is AC Milan’s captain, a leader of the squad and one of Pioli’s most important players.

AC Milan are currently in negotiations to buy Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona for a fee of around €20 million. Without an important sale in January it will be difficult for Milan to finance the rest of the January campaign thus pushing the club towards a significant sacrifice.
