According to Sky Italia, AC Milan arrived in Madrid this morning with the objective of finding out more information about which players Real Madrid will be hoping to sell this summer. The Italian club are looking to reinforce their squad and are interested in the situations of three players in particular: Dani Ceballos, Mariano Díaz and Martin Ødegaard. Milan officials were also going to inquire about Marcos Llorente, but their visit comes a little too late – Atlético announced this morning that they have signed the midfielder on a five-year deal.
Mariano and Odegaard, the easiest options
Ceballos, who has several suitors in the Premier League, Mariano and Ødegaard will all leave Madrid this summer – either sold or loaned and some with buy-back clauses written into their contracts. The main problem for Milan right now is money, and according to reports in Italy the club is considering giving up their place in next season’s Europa League to give themselves a chance to get their books in order.
