Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan will join a long list of clubs targeting Udinese attacking midfielder Rodrigo de Paul for the summer. The player was initially valued at 35 million euros but a lower offer could be accepted given the market conditions following the COVID-19 pandemic year. Atlético Madrid also seem to be very interested in the player.
De Paul could be considered to join as a central attacking midfielder or even a right winger hence could replace Hakan Calhanoglu or play alongside him.
Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino has said via Football Italia,
“Obviously, he is a player whose name is on everyone’s lips. We have the desire and strength to keep him, but if an opportunity he can’t refuse arrives, we couldn’t hold him back.”
