AC Milan scouting River Plate star

AC Milan have sent scouts to watch River Plate starlet Exequiel Palacios. The 20 year old midfielder is one of the most promising players in Argentine.

Since Leonardo was appointed technical director of AC Milan, the Rossoneri club are paying close attention to promising young players around the world. The current philosophy of the Brazilian is to bring at San Siro highly promising starlets before their price tag skyrockets in the future.

After the purchase of Flamengo star Lucas Paqueta for 35 million euros plus bonuses AC Milan have remained vigilant in South America. One of the most fascinating names that is making a lot of noise in Argentina with his performances is Exequiel Palacios of River Plate.

The 20 year old central midfielder is considered a pure talent in his homeland and has attracted the attention of many European top clubs, including Milan. According to reports the Rossoneri have sent scouts to watch the Argentine talent over the coming weeks. Leonardo is interested but at the moment not fully convinced.

In a recent interview for Radio Genesis, agent Renato Corsi confirmed the affordable 15 million release clause of Palacios but that many change soon. “Millions of intermediaries have called me but for now there is nothing concrete. We will start talking to River because they want to raise his release clause to 30 million euros. If any offer arrives, it will be studied and we will do everything possible so that he stays at River until June”.

The two times capped Argentine international plays mainly as central midfielder but can easily transition to winger or attacking midfield. This season he has made 7 appearances, scoring one and assisting on two occasions. His idol is former Rossoneri star Fernando Redondo.
