Calcio Mercato are reporting that de Paul was spotted in Milan last week spurring rumours but Udinese released a statement to say:

“Udinese Calcio specifies, in order to avoid any misunderstanding, that today Rodrigo De Paul was in Milan to go to the Argentine Consulate, with his family and accompanied by the Club, for bureaucratic reasons.”

Daniele Longo via MilanReports is stating that negotiations for De Paul are open as Maldini is speaking to his agents. He also adds that Jens Petter Hauge will not be a part of any talks as previously reported.

De Paul would be an incredible addition for the Rossoneri as he is a seasoned performer in Serie A. He is also just 26 years old hence heading into his peak and would be a great addition. De Paul has 34 goals and 35 assists in 181 games for Udinese.
