Milan discuss Matri loan

Alessandro Matri is increasingly likely to make his way back to Milan, though they’d prefer a loan rather than the €12m Juventus price-tag.

The striker had started his career with the Rossoneri, going through their youth academy before moving on through the likes of Cagliari and then Juve.

The 28-year-old has been suggested as the prime target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the San Siro front line this season.

According to Sportmediaset, last night’s Trofeo TIM match gave Milan and Juventus the opportunity to discuss Matri’s future.

The Rossoneri hope to take him on loan with an option to buy next summer, whereas the Turin giants would much prefer to sell immediately for €12m.

Juve are eager to cash in on Matri in order to help fund their own bid for Robin Van Persie or Stevan Jovetic.
