Have the Italian giant finally found the ideal successor to veteran Abbiati?
Milan have been following the Swiss goalkeeper for more than three months. Although they didn’t manage to lure him this season, reports claim that he will become a Milan player as early as next season. (Finally one gets to see a descent, normal and worthy player being linked to Milan…)
Calciomercatonews.com, MilanNews.it, as well as some other Italian sources, suggest that the Italian runner-up last season is already working on a plan to sign the talented goalkeeper in season 2013/2014.
The 23-year-old Switzerland international has a contract with Basel expiring in 2015 and is valued at €6 million. (It’d be a real bargain if we get a GK of this caliber for that price.)
Milan are in pole position for Sommer’s signature, but will have to be careful of the competition – such of Lyon, Udinese, Roma and Manchester City.
