This week, we’ve already seen a couple of reports from the Italian media saying AC Milan have opened talks for the permanent signing of Diogo Dalot from Manchester United.

Following the player’s loan spell at the Serie A side, it’s been said that the Red Devils are demanding €15m for the transfer this summer, while the Rossoneri would like to have him on loan for another year before having the option to sign him for that amount.

Now the latest information is brought by Pianeta Milan, and that’s a little different from what has been said lately.

It’s claimed that the Rossoneri are ‘happy’ with the player and would like to buy him, but ‘without spending a lot’. That means they’d like to pay €10m, while Manchester United would rather sell him for more.

Pianeta Milan says that’s the reason why his stay at the San Siro ‘continues to be difficult’. They claim the Italian side are still wondering about the transfer, making it sound like the negotiations aren’t as advanced as previously reported.

Dalot has made 31 appearances for Milan this season, and the report mentions his versatility as a strong argument why the Serie A club would like to keep him.

His contract with Manchester United expires in 2023.
