Milan are looking for the next big hit for the market. After signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho in the last days of last year’s mercato, the management has promised to sign a World Class left midfielder.
Marek Hamsik has expressed willingness to join the Rossoneri family, but Napoli insist he will stay so Milan are looking at other players and il Corriere dello Sport suggests they are on Schweinsteiger now.
The Bayern Munich midfielder, 26, has a contract until 2016 with the club from Bavaria and has spent all his life there. However, it is reported that if a lucrative offer arrives, Bayern would consider selling him.
Despite this report, FC Hollywood’s President Uli Hoeneß claims Schweinsteiger will stay and even captain his side next season: “Bastian will be our captain and will surely be able to carry the teams on their shoulders.” Bayern Munich’s previous captain, Mark Van Bommel is at Milan, enjoying a successful spell.
The German international is valuated at €30-35 million and it is believed that il Diavolo Vice President Adriano Galliani will make open negotiations in the Audi Cup in 2 weeks when Milan face Bayern Munich.
Milan used similar system to lure Ibra last year. Rumours are that Milan will offer €11m + Mathieu Flamini.
