Milan linked with Chelsea target as Bacca takes him out on Valentine's Day
16 February at 12:20There’s been a development in the Luis Muriel case.
Chased by Chelsea and Inter, the Colombian international is now being linked to AC Milan, since he spent Saint Valentine’s… with Carlos Bacca!
According to Il Secolo XIX (via ItaSportPress), the two ate together in Chiavari, in Liguria (close to Genoa), and speculation is rife that a move to the San Siro could be on the cards.
Muriel, 25, is admittedly more of the profile that the Rossoneri and Coach Vincenzo Montella are looking for: unlike Bacca, he’s dynamic, helps around a lot and covers every blade of grass, though he can appear lackadaisical too.
Muriel has been the subject of transfer interest from Chelsea, whose Coach, Antonio Conte, is a big admirer.
The season has taken a very positive turn for the former Lecce and Udinese man, who has scored nine goals and provided three assists, netting three times since late January.
The talk a few days ago was that he had agreed to a move to Inter, with a meeting with Sampdoria producing an understanding over a 35 million summer move.
