Man Utd lining up move for in-demand AC Milan playmaker

Manchester United would reportedly be able to secure services of AC Milan’s midfielder Ismael Bennacer for €50m (£45m) next summer following to a release clause in his current deal with the Serie A giants.

The 22-year-old impressed for AC Milan during the 2019-20 season, and the Red Devils were believed to be interested in signing him during the recent transfer window.

PSG, Man City and Real Madrid were also credited with a strong interest, however, the Algeria international stayed at San Siro past the deadline.

The 22-year-old midfielder has already played seven games for AC Milan this season, providing two assists in the process.

However, despite being a vital player for the Italian club, the terms of his current deal state that a €50m (£45m) release clause will come into play next season, according to Calciomercato reports.

AC Milan star who largely operates as a holding midfielder, represented the Gunners between 2015 and 2017, however, only made one first-team appearance for the North London club before moving on.

Man Utd are in danger to lose their key man Paul Pogba next summer with Frenchman keen on to make his dream move to Real Madrid.
