AC Milan have contacted Everton to discuss a move for Richarlison but the economic demands of the English club are simply shocking.
Not just Lucas Paqueta. With Leonardo as the new sporting director of AC Milan it’s guaranteed that other Brazilian players will join the Rossoneri in the future. Leonardo is monitoring several prospects in his homeland with Gremio star Everton Soares being the top target but also other Brazilians busy around Europe.
One of the names that excites Leonardo is that of Everton star Richarlison. The 21 year old left winger that can play in every position in attack is confirming the good performances of last season attracting the attention of big clubs like Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid and especially Chelsea.
According to Daily Star, AC Milan have inquired about Richarlison. Despite the concrete interested of the Rossoneri a deal seems highly unlikely. Everton have told Milan to pay 90 million euros for the 21 year old winger.
Everton signed Richarlison for 40 million euros from Watford, plus 20 million in bonuses. In 25 Premier League appearances this season the Brazilian youngster has scored 10 goals and has provided 2 assists.
Interestingly enough AC Milan had the opportunity to buy Richarlison for a ridiculous low fee in the summer of 2017. At the time, Fluminense offered Richarlison to Milan for “only” 10 million euros but former sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli refused. Now it’s up to Leonardo to avoid such mistakes in the upcoming market sessions.
