Alvaro Negredo angling for a move to Inter or Milan

New, comments

After a disappointing season at Valencia Negredo wants to move to the city of Milan, but it's unclear how interested either team is.

Recent reports have suggested that Alvaro Negredo wants to play next season at the San Siro, and has offered himself to both Inter Milan and AC Milan. The Spanish striker, who turns 31 in August, had a fairly lackluster 15/16 season scoring five La Liga goals and 12 goals in all competitions (though that's more than some of Inter's strikers this past season...) and hopes a change in scenery will provide an upturn in his fortunes.

I very much doubt that Inter would be interested in signing Negredo. The club already has a couple of underperforming strikers on the books and I don't think they'd be interested in taking a risk on him. It looks like it would cost about €10m to sign him and I feel like that money could be put to better use this summer. Seeing as AC Milan also have Carlos Bacca, Luiz Adriano, and others that can play up top I can't see any reason for them to bring Negredo to their club. But hey, as long as Adriano Galliani has control of Milan's transfers anything is possible.
