Chelsea close in on summer deal for Italian after agenst big announcement

Chelsea target Mattia Destro could be available in the summer with AC Milan unlikely to sign him on a permanent basis, according to the Sky Sports website.

The Roma frontman has been on loan at San Siro but the club are reportedly baulking at paying the asking price of around £12m to make the move permanent.

His agent, Renzo Contratto, also believes the possibility of him moving to England if the Premier League giants make a move for his services.

“If it had been Bayern Munich in the summer instead of Wolfsburg, I’d have taken him there on a bike,” the agent told Tele Radio Stereo.

“Wolfsburg had a good economic structure, but he didn’t go to Germany because at that time Roma offered a more important challenge, fighting for the League and competing in the Champions League.

“He’s now at Milan in too modest an environment, perhaps the most modest in the last 30 years. If Milan don’t exercise the redemption he’ll return to Roma.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
