River Plate star offered to AC Milan

AC Milan have been offered the chance to sign River Plate defender Lucas Martinez Quarta. The Argentine international has a €22 million release clause.

MILAN TRANSFER NEWS – The name of Lucas Martinez Quarta was linked to AC Milan during the last summer transfer window. He is one of the young South American talents that the club is monitoring closely.

The 23-year-old Buenos Aires native is a central defender that plays for Argentine giants River Plate. A product of River’s famous academy, Martinez is part of Los Millonarios’ first-team team since 2016. He also started from the first minute in yesterday’s semi-final match of the Copa Libertadores against Boca Juniors helping River Plate reach the final.

Martinez Quarta is proud to wear a prestigious jersey like that of River Plate but like all South American players he dreams of a future in Europe. And if he continues to confirm himself at great levels, his landing on the old continent will not take too long. acmilaninfo.com had reported earlier that Milan had sent scouts to watch the talented player that has a 22 million euros release clause.

According to reports by Sky Sport journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Argentinian centre-back has been offered to AC Milan. Apparently it’s Lucas Martinez himself to push for a move at San Siro. The Argentine international wants to join the Rossoneri although interest from La Liga is high with Villarreal ahead of the competition.

For now, AC Milan have rejected the possibility to sign Martinez Quarta because the back line of the Pioli’s side is considered complete. AC Milan are counting a lot on the return of Mattia Caldara. The Italian defender is finally fit and coach Stefano Pioli aims to reintegrate him quickly with the rest of the team. So a January move for the River Plate star seems difficult. However, talks for Lucas Martinez may be postponed for next summer if he hasn’t changed club until then.
