As per what is reported in today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper, signing Ziyech in January is only an idea for the AC Milan club management. The loan with the right to buy in the summer is an option to take into consideration as the directors of the Serie A giants should also make a decision on Rafael Leao 's future before the summer.
As per the report, Ziyech would accept the Milan destination. However, the obstacle is his salary which is around 6 million euros net per season at Chelsea. For the reigning Italian champions, it is a high figure. The club does not want to offer a very high salary in order to keep the dressing room stable.
What is certain is that if the Moroccan player decides to reduce his salary, it would be a great help for AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara. He would then be up to them to finalize the deal.
