Juvevolution in progress

Unlike previous traumatic summers, Adam Digby is confident Juventus will be about evolution, not revolution.

Before the Juventus players had even set foot on the tarmac at Turin’s Caselle airport, talk had already turned to what the club would do on the transfer market this summer. While it is saddening to think that the historic accomplishments of Max Allegri’s men became a footnote to their defeat in the Champions League Final, that is the harsh reality the Bianconeri must face over the next few months.

Milan raise Belotti bid to €80m

Milan are closer than ever to Andrea Belotti by offering to spread the €80m cost over two years, as Nikola Kalinic is put on the back-burner.

The directors from the two clubs met today and, according to the latest reports from Toro.it, the Rossoneri had a new proposal.

Their idea would be to take Il Gallo on loan at a cost of €20m with obligation to buy in a year for another €60m.

Kalinic would accept Milan

Milan have reportedly agreed personal terms with Nikola Kalinic, but Fiorentina want more than the initial €20m transfer fee.

The Rossoneri need a new striker, as Carlos Bacca is on the market and Gianluca Lapadula could well follow.

With Alvaro Morata heading to Manchester United for €70m and Torino not budging from the €100m price-tag for Andrea Belotti, they have turned to Kalinic.

According to Calciomercato.it and Sky Sport Italia, among others, Kalinic has given the all-clear for a move to Milan.

Milan: Kalinic and Andre Silva?

Milan have dropped interest in Alvaro Morata, instead hoping to get both Nikola Kalinic and Andre Silva for a combined €60m.

Spanish media claim Morata will fly in to England on Monday for final talks with Manchester United, as a deal with Real Madrid is imminent.

Torino won’t lower their €100m asking price for Andrea Belotti either, so the Rossoneri are turning towards two different targets to reinforce their attack.

Agent: ‘Milan want Morata’

Alvaro Morata’s agent confirms interest from Milan in the Real Madrid striker “existed and still exists”.

The Rossoneri have been linked with the Spanish international, but it appears their interest has cooled in recent days after Morata said he’d stay at the Bernabeu.

“Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role,” Juanma Lopez warned in an interview with FootMercato.

“He wants to play more, which makes sense for a striker who scored 19 goals [in all competitions]. It’s not enough.

Man Utd €60m not enough for Morata

Real Madrid turned down a €60m offer for Alvaro Morata from Manchester United, as they want €90m for the Milan target, claim Sky Sport Italia.

The Spain international wants more playing time than he is currently receiving at the Bernabeu, but the club won’t let him leave cheap.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Manchester United proposed €60m, but Real Madrid turned it down.

The Merengues are only prepared to sell Morata for €90m, which would also put him outside Milan’s price bracket.

Milan return for Aubameyang

Milan have reportedly cooled their interest in Alvaro Morata, so turn back to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Rossoneri had been heavily linked with Morata, but the Real Madrid striker declared after the Champions League final that he wants to stay, and that Juventus are his Italian team.

According to Tuttosport, the Diavolo took this as a clear signal that they should drop their interest, and they are once again pushing for Aubameyang.

'Only Man Utd want Morata'

Manchester United are “the only club that want Alvaro Morata,” confirmed the Real Madrid striker’s father after Milan and Chelsea rumours.

The centre-forward spent two years on loan at Juventus and has struggled for playing time at the Bernabeu this season.

Although the Rossoneri confirmed they were “interested” in Morata and Chelsea were also heavily linked, his father painted a different picture.

Milan: Morata or Andre Silva

Milan met with agent Jorge Mendes yesterday, asking after FC Porto striker Andre Silva as an alternative to Alvaro Morata.

The Rossoneri have made it clear they want a new centre-forward, as Carlos Bacca is on the market this summer.

Morata is the first choice and frustrated at the lack of playing time at Real Madrid, but assured Italian television after last night’s Champions League Final that he knew nothing of Milan interest.
