Milan want Roma's Paredes, but...

Milan are attempting to take Roma's Leandro Paredes away, but many obstacles make the transfer unlikely.

The Rossoneri are on the look-out for young, technically gifted midfielders, and the 22-year-old Argentine fits the bill perfectly.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports of a renewed interest in Paredes after the deals for Real Madrid's Mateo Kovacic and Boca Juniors' Rodrigo Bentancur fell through.

However the conditions to take away the Roma starlet don't seem much easier to meet. Pundit Alfredo Pedulla believes the club from the capital won't consider a sale for anything less than €18m, and Milan have already spent the initial capital provided by the Chinese ownership to buy Jose Sosa.

It is widely believed that Vincenzo Montella's team won't be able to complete any transfers except on a loan basis, and it's unlikely Roma would give them an option to buy.

The only thing working in favour of the deal is the fact that Paredes would presumably get more playing time with the Diavolo, and this may suit both the player and, in case of a loan deal with no option to buy, the Giallorossi as well.
