Italy giant AC Milan are reportedly keen on acquiring Brazilian play maker Oscar.
The club, which is plotting its path to winning ways, is ready to battle English side Manchester United for the signature of Isco from Real Madrid as well, reports claim.
Reports in Italy say Milan are preparing a £39 million bid for Oscar in the next transfer window. Oscar has started five of six Premier League games at Stamford Bridge. He is one of the first choice players at Chelsea, yet Milan feel they can lure him away from England. Italian source CalcioMercatoWeb say Coach Antonio Conte is looking at changing the Blues’ formation to 3-5-2, and thus the Brazilian might get a back seat.
The Serie A side are hoping to tap into the club’s new-found wealth source from the Chinese consortium to lure Oscar next summer. Milan want to compete in Europe after a two-year absence, and a string of dismal performances. Manchester United’s Memphis Depay, and Spurs Harry Kane are other players in England that the Italian side wants.
AC Milan place sixth in the current Serie A standings after six matches. They trail the league leaders Juventus by five points. They want to battle United for Isco’s signature.
United are planning ahead of a Wayne Rooney departure from the club. Real Madrid want to add Dortmund’s Pierr-Emerick Aubameyang to their attack line. This would definitely bring more competition to the Bernabeu. The Red Devils hope to lure him to England, but Milan are ready to fight them.
There are reports also that Milan chief Andriano Galliani might acquire the services of Simone Zaza from West Ham United. The player has not made an impact since his England move. It just seems Milan are keen on getting players in England in the next summer transfer window.
