Milan and Roma still far from Veretout

Fiorentina are continuing to reject Milan and Roma offers for Jordan Veretout, reported to be €17m and €18m respectively, so both turn to Jean Michael Seri.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the negotiations are continuing with both clubs and the French midfielder remains out of pre-season training with his teammates, particularly as he was pelted with insults by the Viola fans.

It’s believed Roma are still in front with an offer of €16m plus another €2m in bonuses, compared to Milan’s €15m and €2m add-ons.

They are still both a long way off Fiorentina’s €25m asking price and the Tuscans are refusing to accept player exchanges, so only want cash.

Considering the difficulty of the situation, Sky transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims Milan could turn to Fulham wantaway midfielder Seri instead.

Curiously, Seri has already been in negotiations with Roma, as confirmed by his agent, so the two clubs continue to have similar targets.
