AC MILAN are keen to land Alessandro Matri this January, as a replacement for the injured Inzaghi.
The Rossoneri said they will sign a forward in the winter, and according to Milannews.it, they have made their choice: Cagliari’s 26-year-old Matri.
Matri admitted he’s flatted by the interest of Milan, and now it seems that the Rossoneri are ready to bring him. It appears that they will pay Cagliari €12 million in three installments (each of €4 million).
But, Milan are also ready to give Cagliari the other of Davide Astori. The 23-year-old defender, who grew in Milan’s youth system – like Matri – would therefore become a fulltime Cagliari player.
Despite the interest of Milan, and other clubs in Matri, Cagliari boss, Roberto Donadoni has made it clear that he wants to keep the forward, who scored a brace yesterday: “We must hold him [Matri] tight,” he said.
