Milan held negotiations with £120,000-a-week Chelsea midfielder

Milan planning a surprise move for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Stefano Pioli looks to shore up his midfield options during the summer transfer window. England international is likely to cost nearly €25m.

Apparently, the first contact between the two sides have already taken place. And it stays to be seen whether Milan and Chelsea can agree on a fee during the summer transfer window. There seems to be a consensus that €25m is a fair price for Loftus-Cheek.

Ruben has had a tough time at Chelsea and has not been able to hold down a regular starting spot in the side. Apparently, Graham Potter does not see him as an indispensable asset. So the London giants could look to cash in on him in the summer.

Chelsea value the player at €25m, and it stays to be seen whether the Rossoneri will eventually pay the asking price for the English midfielder. However, the report adds that the transfer will depend on the 27-year-old midfielder’s willingness to leave London and move to Italy.

Ruben will have seen the development of Tomori since leaving Chelsea for Milan, and he could feel that a move to Italy would be perfect for him as well.
