Milan Offered Alternative as Talks with Valencia Lag

Milan will need to up their offer to add Yunus Musah to their long list of newcomers. Valencia have rejected their improved bid, and the player has resumed training after a few days where he was limited.

Per Corriere della Sera (via OneFootball), Els Che rejected €18M for the USMNT prodigy. The Rossoneri put €3/4M more on the table compared to their previous offer. La Liga’s outfit requests €25M to part ways with him.

As they have done with other negotiations, Milan might take a little step back and charge for Musah again down the line. In the meantime, they have been offered an alternative to add depth to their new-look midfield.

Per TuttoSport, some intermediaries proposed Sander Berge, who has been on their radar in the past. He has played for Sheffield United in the Championship in the past two campaigns. He has logged 13 goals and 12 assists in 109 matches since joining in a €25M move from Club Brugge.

Our Take on Milan, Musah, and Berge

It might take a little time, but the Rossoneri haven’t been scared off by hefty requests for their other targets. Instead, the Norwegian international would be a decent deputy for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, but his price tag is likely too robust for such a role.
