Laxalt salary stalls Atalanta move

Milan full-back Diego Laxalt’s negotiations for a move to Atalanta risk breaking down definitively, letting Marseille and Fenerbahce back in.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere della Sera, the Uruguay international is available on loan with option to buy for €12m, but the move is stalled by personal terms.

He is currently earning €1.8m per season at Milan, whereas Atalanta are reported to only offer €800,000.

'Juve not global like Milan'

Milan President Paolo Scaroni claims his club ‘don’t even take notice of Juventus around the world’ because ‘we’ve won seven Champions Leagues.’

Milan are undergoing a period of modernisation under Elliott Management, and while Scaroni again underlined the need to raise turnover, he felt the Rossoneri had more global reach than Juve.

“I don't want to come across as venal, but it’s all about money,” the 72-year-old told reporters.

Milan: Calhanoglu to replace Biglia?

Hakan Calhanoglu could replace Lucas Biglia as Milan’s ‘regista’ against Udinese on Sunday after the Argentine pulled up in training.

ANSA and Sportitalia both report Biglia picked up a problem in his left thigh and is a doubt for Milan’s Serie A opener this weekend.

If so, they speculate Calhanoglu will play as the deep-lying playmaker in midfield, with Lucas Paqueta and Fabio Borini flanking him.

Milan and Kessie reject Monaco

Monaco did make an offer for Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, but Sky Sport Italia insist it was rejected outright by both club and player.

RMC Sport had reported this evening that Monaco were in negotiations for the Ivory Coast international with a €20m proposal.

This would be considerably less than the amount the Rossoneri spent for him, as he arrived on a two-year loan from Atalanta for €8m with obligation to buy in 2019 for a further €24m.
