Milan challenge Juventus for Keita

Milan are reportedly willing to offer €30m to sign Lazio forward Keita Baldé Diao, also a target for Juventus and Inter.

The Senegal international is out of contract at the end of the season, and he has decided that he won’t sign an extension.

Keita already has a deal in place with Juve, but they’ve so far been unwilling to meet the €30m asking price.

The Aquile have claimed that the first official offer didn’t even amount to half of that, and Gazzetta dello Sport insists they absolutely won’t sell to the Old Lady before the Supercoppa on August 13.

That leaves the door open for Milan, who first showed interest back in May but were put off by the player’s desire to move to Turin.

However, Gazzetta believes that CEO Marco Fassone has told Biancocelesti President Claudio Lotito that he’s willing to put €30m on the table.

There’s also interest from Napoli and Inter, though the latter are only likely to make an official offer if Ivan Perisic joins Manchester United.
