Agent: ‘Aquilani to Milan for €10m’

Liverpool man Alberto Aquilani’s agent has confirmed he’ll talk to Milan. “I think an agreement could be reached for €10m.”

The midfielder wanted to stay on at Juventus after his year-long loan, but the club did not take up its option to buy for around €17m.

He is not part of Liverpool’s plans this season and has made it clear he would like a permanent return to Italy.

“When you talk about negotiations like this, there is always an element of truth,” agent Franco Zavaglia told Il Sussidiario.

“Adriano Galliani is currently in China for the Italian Super Cup, but I expect to talk to him when he returns to Milan.

“I think an agreement could be reached for €10m.”

This week Rossoneri Vice-President Galliani admitted Aquilani was the type of player they were looking for to strengthen the midfield.

It would be a huge loss for Liverpool, who paid £20m to take him from Roma two years ago.

“Aquilani is still tied to a three-year contract with Liverpool and before his eventual departure we will talk with those in charge of Liverpool.

“It seems clear to me that the player is not part of the Coach’s plans, so the suggestion he could leave is concrete.”
