Zaniolo Keen on Milan Move but Roma Set Pricey Terms

Nicolò Zaniolo has an agreement on personal terms with Milan, but the Rossoneri have made little progress in the deal with Roma. They proposed a loan with obligation to buy tied to their Champions League qualification.

Per Alfredo Pedullà, the attacker would earn €3.5/3.7M if he did transfer. The salary is close to what he requested to his current side, but not that big of a pay bump. The relationship is strained, and the extension talks are unlikely to reprise if he stays put.

According to Corriere della Sera, Roma have established a €35M price tag for Zaniolo, and Milan haven’t come close to that. In the meantime, Tottenham signed Arnaut Danjuma from Villarreal, hijacking Everton’s attempt.

Director Frederic Massara addressed the matter to DAZN before the Lazio game.

“We are focused on matches. The transfer market is still open, but we don’t have particular needs. We’ll see whether there could be some opportunities, but it’s unlikely. We are convinced to have a strong squad that can compete at the highest level, and we’ll do it until the end.”

Our Take on Roma, Milan, and Zaniolo

The Rossoneri are in such dire straits that even adding a player with some baggage would make sense. They have the right scheme for him to thrive, and it’d make their formation less lopsided. The ideal outcome for the Giallorossi would be a move abroad, but he prefers staying in Italy. The question is whether they’ll settle for less money to ship him away, or hold firm and stomach the problem for a few more months. His price tag won’t climb any higher if he doesn’t play and perform well, though.
