CM: Milan tried for two Real Madrid forwards before signing Messias

A report revealed that Milan held talks with Real Madrid during the summer regarding the possibility of signing strikers.

According to a report from, directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara tried to boost the attack in the latest transfer window when they knocked on Real Madrid’s door for players that didn’t seem to fit in with Carlo Ancelotti’s plans in Isco and Marco Asensio.

Regarding Isco, contacts with his entourage continued for weeks with the approval of Los Blancos who were happy to sell the 29-year-old one year after his contract expired, but his salary demands were deemed too high by Rossoneri management given the limits imposed by the Elliott Management project.

The story associated with Asensio is a little strange. In the last few days of the transfer market, Real Madrid were open to the idea of ​​loaning the 25-year-old – presumably because they were convinced they would be able to finish off Kylian Mbappe’s deal with PSG – but the Spain international decided to reject Massarra and Maldini’s proposal.

He thought he still had a place at Real Madrid and could fight for a role in Ancelotti’s plans, so negotiations never really took off and Milan ended up signing Junior Messias from Crotone.
