AC Milan will move for Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic if they fail to land Uruguayan youngster Rodrigo Bentancur, reports SportMediaset.
AC Milan are looking to boost their midfield options and have set their sights on Boca Juniors’ Bentancur. They have offered a fee of €15m for the 19-year-old and have set a 48-hour deadline to see whether the deal will go ahead or not.
The Rossoneri are not the only Serie A side keen on Bentancur – Juventus want him too – and Sport Mediaset reports that they have lined up Croatia international Kovacic as an alternative transfer target.
AC Milan would look to sign Kovacic, who joined Real Madrid from Inter last year, on loan.
