Milan in running for Emerson Royal

Milan are in the running for Barcelona defender Emerson Royal, according to Mundo Deportivo, but there’s strong competition for the €30m right-back.

The 21-year-old Brazilian is midway through a two-year loan at Real Betis, which means there would have to be a penalty payment if that spell were to be cut short.

That raises the price-tag to €25-30m if someone wants to purchase Emerson outright from Barcelona.

Today’s edition of Mundo Deportivo newspaper in Spain suggests that Milan are in the running for Emerson Royal, but they are certainly not the only ones.

There is competition from Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Newcastle United, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen.

The Brazilian played 31 Liga games this season, contributing three goals and five assists.
