According to Corriere dello Sport, Milan are preparing a shock January move for Spurs striker Harry Kane. The rossoneri have just been taken over by new Chinese investors who will make €100 million available to coach Vincenzo Montella to go on a shopping spree in the new year. Spurs have already stated that the England international is not for sale but the Italian side are reportedly prepared to table a bid in excess of €50 million for the 23-year-old.
RAIOLA RULES OUT DONNARUMMA MOVE TO REAL MADRID
Super-agent Mino Raiola has told a Spanish radio station that Real Madrid are not interested in Milan’s young goalkeeping sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma. Speaking to Cadena Cope, Raiola explained that; “We’ve only just finished the summer transfer market and already were talking about the next one. If Donnarumma keeps developing at this rate he will become the best in the world but I can tell you that Real Madrid is not interested in him but I prefer not to speak about my business on the radio as I have to be discreet and what I say to the press often gets sensationalised”. The player has also been linked with a move to Chelsea next summer.
Napoli are to begin new contract talks with striker Lorenzo Insigne. La Gazzetta dello Sport states that a substantial wage increase will be offered to prevent the Italian international from leaving his hometown club.
The pink journal also states that former Italian international striker Antonio Di Natale may come out of retirement to play for second division side Spal. The club have reportedly offered the 38-year-old a one-year deal.
Roma president James Pallotta is heading to the Italian capital to try to tie down contract renewals for several of the club’s stars. Chelsea summer targets Radja Nainggolan and Kostas Manolas are two of the men in question (Il Messaggero).
Legendary Italian coach Marcello Lippi is heading back to Chinese Super-League side Guanghzou Evergrande. The 2006 World Cup winner will reportedly sign a three-year-deal worth €20 million net per season (Corriere dello Sport).
Reports from several Italian media outlets suggest that Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci will be offered a lucrative new contract at the club as a reward for rejecting a summer move to Manchester City. It’s believed that the new deal will take him up until 2021 with a reported salary of €5 million net plus bonus per season.
Spanish journal El Confidencial claims that Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone will remain at the club for at least one more season before seeking pastures new. With the club from the capital ready to move into their new stadium next season, Simeone will oversee their first season in their new home before heading elsewhere. The Argentine tactician has been strongly linked with a return to former club Inter.
