'Roma & Leverkusen beaten to Duarte'

Milan reportedly beat Roma and Bayer Leverkusen to the signing of Flamengo defender Leo Duarte.

Duarte completed his Milan medical on Thursday morning and will now sign a five-year contract, Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira writing he will earn €1.2m a season with the Rossoneri.

Schira also corroborates Serginho’s revelation that the Diavolo fought off competition from Roma to the 23-year-old, while adding Leverkusen were also disappointed.

Milan target Ankersen

Milan have reportedly set their sights on Danish right-back Peter Ankersen, who is available from FC Copenhagen for €2m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the experienced Denmark international is their latest candidate for the right side of defence.

He turns 29 in September and is only under contract until the end of this season.

The cost of signing Ankersen would therefore be in the region of €2m.

There is also believed to be interest from some Premier League clubs.

Milan demand Biglia transfer fee

Milan have asked Genoa for at least €5-6m in order to sell Lucas Biglia, it’s reported, which could scupper the deal.

Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has pin-pointed Biglia as the ideal replacement for Miguel Veloso in the middle of the park.

He could be released by Milan, largely because of his €3.5m per year salary, so there were suggestions he could terminate the contract by mutual consent.

However, Sky Sport Italia and Il Secolo XIX newspaper claim the Rossoneri would make a loss unless they picked up at least €5-6m transfer fee.

'Duarte can be Milan's new Silva'

Former Milan winger Serginho has backed Flamengo defender Leo Duarte to have a similar impact on the Rossoneri to Thiago Silva.

“He’s a player with great character, he’s only 23 years old but he’s already played many games for Flamengo,” the 48-year-old told Milan News.
