Milan Eye Touted Fullback Formerly Linked to Juventus

Milan have joined Juventus among Serie A teams closely monitoring Ivan Fresneda. The Bianconeri tried to sign him in January, but they didn’t really come close. The Rossoneri have taken an interest as of late, but the competition is stiff, Sky relays.

The 18-year-old continue to turn heads with his performance in La Liga, especially for his upside. On top of the Italian giants, Borussia Dortmund, Newcastle, and Arsenal are keen on the budding fullback. Paolo Maldini received rave reviews from the scouts.

Fresneda has a €40M release clause in his contract, which doesn’t entice Juventus and Milan, Calciomercato informs. It would automatically decrease if Real Valladolid get relegated, though. They are 15th in the standings with a four-point lead over the bottom three.

The Spaniard has appeared in 18 matches across all competitions this year. Both Italian teams project to have a need at the position. The Old Lady currently intends to move on from Juan Cuadrado, who has an expiring contract, while the Rossoneri won’t redeem Sergino Dest after a loan spell from Barcelona.

Our Take on Fresneda, Milan, and Juventus

If his price tag is close to his release clause, then he won’t transfer to the Peninsula, as it would be a giant gamble. Instead, if the fee were more affordable, the Bianconeri would make more sense as they’d be in the market for a starter. Instead, Davide Calabria isn’t going anywhere, and they already have a good backup in Alessandro Florenzi.
