AC Milan have been watching Udinese captain and attacker Rodrigo de Paul for years now and look ever closer to making a move this summer as we reported here. But a number of challenges seem to be arising namely: the fee, Hakan’s renewal and Raiola’s appraoch.

Nicolo Schira is reporting that Milan are making a final offer to Hakan Calhanoglu and if this is not accepted they are teeing up de Paul as a replacement but Udinese want 35-40 million euros for him.

Pianeta Milan are disputing the claim that Mino Raiola represents Rodrigo de Paul but suggest he could be joining him soon. The report notes that Milan will attempt to lower the asking price by including a youngster such as Tommaso Pobega in the deal.

Gazzetta dello Sport also report that the deal was difficult but could be even more complicated now due to the strained relationship between Milan and Raiola following the Donnarumma situation.
