A bit of Barcelona business seems inevitable…
Milan are planning an ambitious swoop for Barcelona attacker David Villa, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
With coach Massimiliano Allegri set to be confirmed as the boss for the new season, the Rossoneri are thinking about summer reinforcements.
Reinforcing the midfield department is a priority at the moment, with Milan likely to go for one of Gokhan Inler or Radja Nainggolan. Meanwhile, they also want to sign a right winger so that Kevin-Prince Boateng can resume his midfield duties in the new season.
However, the Italian press says that Milan are also keen on Barcelona star David Villa, who could be available for sale at the end of the campaign. The Rossoneri could face a stiff competition for the Spain international, but they believe the player would be tempted by the opportunity to join a truly great European club.
In addition, the Italian giant has made a €5 million Barcelona offer to sign Bojan Krkic on a permanent basis, reports Mundo Deportivo.
The forward’s two-year loan to Roma was switched to the Diavolo last August, with the Rossoneri having a €15 million option to net him outright this summer.
While the San Siro giants are happy to keep the 22-year-old, they want a discount on the previously agreed fee. Barcelona have yet to respond to the offer tabled.
Bundesliga outfit Hamburg have also been linked with a player who has scored just three goals in 19 Serie A games.
