Real Madrid has named their price for AC Milan attacking target Marco Asensio, a report claims.
As has been reported by Corriere Della Sera today, the Spanish attacking midfielder would cost Milan €25 million which is half of Rossoneri’s reported transfer budget for this summer.
They will of course do what they can to lower that fee in negotiations with the Spanish champions.
Milan will have to be sure that he is the player they want to add more quality to the attack.
As Milan will also need the player to accept a lower salary than the €5 million per season.
And he currently receives from Los Blancos.
Marco Asensio has not seen as much game time under Carlo Ancelotti as he would have hoped.
And now appears very open to a new challenge where he will be more important to the team.
The Spaniard could be an alternative to Hakim Ziyech on the right.
As has been reported by Corriere Della Sera (via Milan News), Milan will be ready to open talks with Paulo Dybala and his entourage properly in 10 days.
In the meantime, Inter could unblock the deal by breaking Alexis Sanchez’s contract and selling one of either Joaquin Correa or Edin Dzeko.
They need to do that to free up space both in the squad.
And more importantly in the wage budget as they can’t currently confirm the signing of the Argentinian.
This repeated delay to the deal is what opens the door for a team like AC Milan to start trying to hijack the move.
The issue is that Milan may not be able to pay the kind of wage that the forward is requesting.
He does want to stay in Italy and Milan may be his only choice if Inter doesn’t complete the deal.
