Sport Mediaset are reporting that the representatives of Real Madrid attacker Marco Asension have confirmed that AC Milan are interested in the player over a summer move. They said: “Milan’s interest is a pride, a future in Milan is an option, there are also offers from a couple of English clubs including Arsenal, we are ready to evaluate every possibility.”
The player has a contract expiring in 2023 and Los Blancos would be willing to part with him for about 25-30 million euros. The two clubs also have an excellent relationship as seen with the move of Brahim Diaz. Asensio does not look set to renew his contract hence an opportunity arises for the Rossoneri.
MilanNews.it are reporting that the wages being requested by the Spain international are considered to be high and this is an early stumbling block for the deal. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have been quite strict with the wage structure at the club and will not likely deviate.
AS via MilanNews.it are reporting that the talks are indeed open as Milan want to complete the signing in June. They also flag that the Growth Decree will benefit Milan to lower the overall gross wage for the player who currently earns 5 million euros per year.
