There is growing optimism at the AC Milan headquarters for the transfer of Chelsea's right-winger Hakim Ziyech. The player is appreciated a lot for his qualities and for being able to play as a right-winger and playmaker. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, who renewed their contracts finally a few days ago, want to conclude the deal with The Blues on the basis of a loan operation. According to Calcio Mercato, the Rossoneri management will be submitting a loan deal with a buy-obligation set at 25 million euros. But, the Premier League side are asking for at least 5 million more.
The club is pushing to sign Ziyech but this opportunity is making them review their strategy. In fact, it is no secret that after the permanent signing of Alessandro Florenzi and renewal of Antonio Mirante, the announcement of Messias' permanent transfer has not arrived.
In fact, despite having an agreement with the Brazilian winger and with Crotone (4 million euros for the buy-option), the trail seems to cool down now.
Junior Messias would in fact find much less space if Ziyech arrived at San Siro. The AC Milan club managers do not want to give up Messias but are making further reflections and are trying to further lower the cost of the transfer.
