AC Milan have pulled a trick from their sleeve to try keep Man Utd target Gianluigi Donnarumma, while James Rodriguez future is in doubt, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
With the Manchester derby tomorrow, we have written a special betting preview for Betsafe that can be read over at their site.
According to reports in Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan are ready to make a shock bid for Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann.
The 25-year-old Atletico striker has been heavily linked with the Red Devils, with reports claiming they are willing to pay the £89million release clause.
Now the Italian giants have entered the race as club owners Suning Group look to shake up their squad in the summer following another disappointing Serie A season.
The Nerazzurri are still looking at the possibility of snatching Antonio Conte away from Chelsea, with the coach reportedly telling close friends he may quit Chelsea at the end of the season.
The Italian press are also suggesting that Inter are set to challenge Manchester United for Monaco’s defensive midfielder Fabinho and Roma’s Kevin Strootman.
Duo to battle for former Juve starlet
On April 30th 2017, Bayern Munich’s option to buy Kinglsey Coman will expire, and according to reports there are two Premier League clubs sniffing around.
Bayern Munich will have to pay €21million for the young French international (plus the €7million that Juve have already received for the two year loan).
According to Calciomercato.com, Bayern are almost certain to take up the option to buy, but it does not mean the player will stay with them.
The Italian outlet state that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are both interested in him and they are ready to battle it out.
Coman has struggled for game time this season behind Ribery, Robben and Douglas Costa, but the report claims he could still be sold for over €40million.
