Milan shrug off Stambouli

Multiple sources claim Paris Saint-Germain offered Benjamin Stambouli to Milan, but they prefer Roma’s Leandro Paredes.

Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium both report PSG proposed Stambouli on loan with option to buy.

However, the Rossoneri see the 26-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder as far from their favoured candidate.

Vincenzo Montella would ideally have Mateo Kovacic, but Real Madrid refuse to release the Croatian talent on loan with an option to buy.

Milan are short on cash while the takeover by Chinese investors drags on, so their offer to Roma for Paredes has also so far been rejected.

Again, it would be a loan deal with option to buy, something the Giallorossi are not prepared to accept.
