Milan’s €25m Offer Turns Romagnoli’s Head

Alessio Romagnoli has suggested that he could leave Roma in the summer transfer window amid ongoing interest from AC Milan.

The 20-year-old impressed on loan at Sampdoria in 2014-15 and is widely regarded as one of Italy’s most promising young defenders.

Clubs such as AC Milan and Napoli are keen to lure him away from the Stadio Olimpico, with the former recently tabling a €25 million offer for the centre-back.

Roma have so far been adamant that Romagnoli is going nowhere, turning down Milan’s bid, but the Italy Under-21 star himself seems not convinced that his future lies with the Giallorossi.

“Whether I will stay at Roma? We will see what happens. I don’t know if I will stay,” the youngster told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Romagnoli came through the ranks of the Roma youth academy and made his official first-team debut in 2012-13. He spent last season on loan at Sampdoria in order to gain valuable first-team experience.

He has a contract with Roma until the summer of 2018.
