'Milan wanted Kucka-Baselli swap'

Torino director Gianluca Petrachi confirms Milan had offered Juraj Kucka in exchange for Daniele Baselli, but Sinisa Mihajlovic nixed the deal.

There had been reports over the summer that Miha wanted to bring Kucka with him to Turin, having referred to the midfielder as “a tank” during his Rossoneri tenure.

“A transfer intermediary working on behalf of Milan had proposed a straight swap between Baselli and Kucka, so we knew the Rossoneri liked our player,” confirmed Torino director of sport Petrachi today.

“I talked about it with our Coach, but he was against the move, as he was not interested in this type of operation.”
