Milan and Juve to Mount Summer Assault for Zaniolo

Ex-Roma forward Nicolo Zaniolo has started his Galatasaray adventure on a high note, registering two goals and one assist in four appearances since making his Turkish debut. That has only accelerated interest amongst a few familiar suitors in his services, which might see the Italian playmaker depart in the summer, only a few months after his arrival.

As per Calciomercato, Milan and Juventus are still hot on trail for Zaniolo, who left Roma unhinged in the winter transfer market after disagreements with coach José Mourinho and the Giallorossi fans.

Juventus have maintained regular interest in the youngster for a few years now, but Milan are running ahead of the Bianconeri in the transfer race. Rossoneri technical director Paolo Maldini reportedly communicated with Zaniolo beforehand that an attempt would be made for him in the coming summer.

The 23-year-old signed a four-year contract at Galatasaray, tying himself to the club until the summer of 2027. However, suitors can onboard him by paying a release clause of €35M. It will reportedly fall to €30M in January 2024 and eventually to €28M next summer. Thus, the Cimbon can expect anything between €25-30M to fall into their coffers for the Italian starlet.
