Milan step up efforts to ward off Spurs for Musacchio


Milan step up efforts to ward off Spurs for Musacchio

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani is wasting no time in trying to keep Atgentinian centre-back Mateo Musacchio out of Mauricio Pochettino's clutches. He will try and close a deal with the player and Villarreal in the next couple of days, suggests a report from Sky.

Cristian Zapata underwent successful ankle surgery yesterday and with a need to improve their backline anyway, signing a centre-back is crucial. Milan and his agency company EMG Mundial have been negotiating for weeks.

This isn't a straightforward transfer as Villarreal only own 35% of the rights of the 25-year-old, a third party owns the rest. When we tried to buy him last summer Villarreal were insisting we pay them 76% of the transfer fee and were thus insisting on £50-million. The Premier League don't allow third party ownership.

Tottenham have made a last minute intervention expressing our interest to the player. Whether he wants to play every week or as a backup to Toby Alderweireld we may know in a couple of days. The indications from Italy are that he is keen to sign for AC Milan.
