MCDONALD MARIGA has been followed by many teams says Andrea Berta, the three Italian giants are looking for the midfielder.
AC Milan have some issues in the midfielder since Kaka left the squad this summer, while Gattuso and Pirlo find it hard to perform top level again. However, Milan eyed Parma youngster, Mariga.
The Rossoneri midfield lacks speed and creativity. Despite the attack is not beating the keeper while the midfield has the ball for the most of the time, Leonardo feels that another mid-player is needed.
Mariga is a player with great potential and he’s only 22-years-old. The Kenyan is very unlikely to stay at Parma for too long, as at Italy – AC Milan, Inter Milan and AFC Fiorentina eye the player.
“I no longer work for Parma, but the situation hasn’t changed,” former Parma sporting director Andrea Berta said.
“Mariga has a buyout clause of €10 million, so I think it’s difficult that he’ll leave for a smaller amount. News linking him to a €6m move to Fiorentina are false, if the Viola want him they will have to pay more.”
“Mariga is an important player, followed by various clubs, especially in England,” he continued. “I think he will be the most sought-after Parma player in the next summer transfer period, but I don’t think the club will sell him in January.
“It takes time to complete a negotiation like that and the winter transfer window is short. Did Fiorentina want him? Many clubs wanted him and still want him, by now he’s ready to make a jump to a big club.”
