Bielik confirms Milan interest

Poland Under-21 defender Krystian Bielk has confirmed that Milan tried to sign him before he joined Derby County.

It was reported over the summer that Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis was hoping to use his Arsenal connections to land Bielik.

However, the versatile 21-year-old ended up moving to EFL Championship side Derby in a £7m (€7.8m) deal.

“I was hoping to get an opportunity with Unai Emery,” he told Sportowe Fakty.

“Instead, I didn’t fit into his plans and so I had to leave.

“Before the European Under-21 Championship, I received an offer from Milan, but then everything changed and nothing more was done.”
