Milan’s interest in Newcastle full-back Davide Santon has cooled, according to the Corriere dello Sport.
Santon, 22, is the kind of promising young player that the Diavolo are now openly targeting on the transfer market.
The Diavolo did make an enquiry for the Italian international in January, but no deal could be done mid-season.
Vice-President Adriano Galliani was expected to renew his club’s interest in the defender at the end of the campaign, but that may not be the case anymore.
Galliani is now looking elsewhere given that he deems Newcastle’s €10m valuation for the former Inter player as excessive.
