Every club in Italy is trying to boost its ranks to finally dethrone Juventus this campaign. Inter and Napoli are doing great business this summer, but Milan don’t want to be left behind and are reportedly working on striking a deal for a very interesting player who can improve their level as soon as he lands in San Siro.
AC Milan chief Zvonimir Boban is reportedly heading to Spain next week to try and get a deal done for Atletico Madrid star Angel Correa. The Italian giants are set to start the season this Sunday against Udinese, so their focus this weekend will be that match and nothing else.
The transfer window is open in Italy until September 2, so they have time to secure a deal for the Argentinian forward. According to Calciomercato, Boban will travel to Madrid early next week to hold talks with Atleti as Milan hope that this can be the right time to persuade Atletico to part ways with the Argentinian.
This report also notes that Correa has been valued at €50m+ by Atleti, which is why Boban will travel to Spain and see if his efforts of going for face-to-face talks result in Atletico lowering their asking price. If that doesn’t work, the Rossoneri will have to try something different, but as noted by MilanNews, Gianluca Di Marzio has insisted that Milan want Correa ‘at all costs’, and so they’ll try to do anything to sign the 24-year-old.
If they add Correa, Milan will sign their name on the list of candidates for the Serie A title. Having this guy with his intensity, technical quality and creativity among other qualities will make Marco Giampaolo’s side one to be careful of the next campaign. Still, it remains to be seen if Boban gets good news on his trip to the Spanish capital next week.
