GdS: Milan targeting €60m PSG midfielder – Mendes could help broker deal

AC Milan are on the hunt for a defensive midfielder ahead of next season and one of the opportunities that could arise is Manuel Ugarte of Paris Saint-Germain, a report claims.

As this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) reports, the main priority for the Milan management is to hire a head coach and sign a striker who can replace Olivier Giroud, with Sergio Conceicao and Benjamin Sesko the leading candidates.

Then the attentions will turn to other areas. Milan will need a central defender who will restore solidity to the department, which has recently appeared too weak and they will also make some moves on the flanks too.

They will sign a left-back if Theo Hernandez leaves and a right-back to compete with the captain Davide Calabria. The name that is currently top of the list is Tottenham’s Emerson Royal who is 25 years old and has a price tag of €30m which is ‘possibly negotiable’.

For the midfiekd Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana remains a target but the new name is Ugarte, a 23-year-old at PSG who has a €60m release clause having signed for the same amount from Sporting CP last summer.

Jorge Mendes, the agent who looks after his interests, could help broker the deal, perhaps on loan. Even more so if Sergio Conceiçao, another of his clients, arrived at Milan.
