AC Milan are at risk of losing two key players at the end of the season, with Juventus reportedly making an official approach for Mattia De Sciglio.
The Italian international’s current contract expires next summer, and coupled with the delays in the takeover of the Rossoneri, it has left them in a precarious position with their homegrown star.
As reported by Calciomercato, Juve are looking to take full advantage of the situation having been linked with the 24-year-old for a long time, with €15m being touted as the potential fee to prise him away from the San Siro at the end of the season.
From a Milan perspective, the majority of supporters will undoubtedly be disappointed to merely see De Sciglio leave the club, but if it were to be for Juve, it would surely lead to a furious reaction.
Although the versatile full-back has had his problems with fitness and form in recent years, he’s getting back to a high level of play this season and many connected to the Rossoneri will be hoping that once the takeover is potentially completed on April 14, it will lead to De Sciglio committing his future and signing a new long-term contract.
Elsewhere, Gerard Deulofeu’s form this season is seemingly pushing him closer to the exit door with former club Barcelona linked with re-signing him.
The Spaniard returned to the national team set-up this week and made a memorable contribution in the win over France. While he will return to parent club Everton from his loan spell with Milan at the end of the season, Calciomercato add that it’s becoming increasingly likely that Barca will exercise a clause in the deal with the Toffees to re-sign their former starlet for €12m.
In turn, it’s added that the Catalan giants may then sell him on for a profit knowing that his form since joining Milan will have attracted plenty of attention. The Rossoneri will be in contention to sign him permanently, but as with everything at the club currently it seems, much will depend on the takeover and how much Vincenzo Montella has to spend this summer.
