Milan might’ve found the alternative to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, as Caen teen M’Baye Niang visited the club headquarters. “I am really interested.”
The Rossoneri had targeted Yanga-Mbiwa as the reinforcement for a defence that has lost Thiago Silva and Alessandro Nesta this summer, but Montpellier rejected the €6m offer.
Instead, L’Equipe claims Caen’s 18-year-old Niang has already visited the Milan training ground for a tour on Friday.
“I was so impressed, it’s magnificent,” he said of Milanello.
“I am really interested in Milan.”
The Under-21 France international, who originates from Senegal, has a contract until 2014 and an offer is expected by the end of the day.
