AC Milan have reportedly made an offer to sign Gremio’s youngster Vanderson as per the report in Brazilian outlet Uol Sports.
The youngster plays right-back for the Brazilian side. The 20-year-old signed a four-year contract with the Imortal Tricolor. The defender made his debut for the club last December in a 2-1 win against Atletico Goianiense.
According to the report, Milan offered around €10 million plus bonuses for Vanderson. But, Gremio turned that offer down and do not want to negotiate for their youngster. The club have revealed that the player is currently not for sale and will not hear any offer.
There is a €100 million termination clause on the youngster’s contract who has four more years remaining in his current contract. The Premier League giants Arsenal also tried to sign the 20-year-old, however, the Brazilian consider the youngster is currently untouchable.
Milan are interested in Gremio right-back Vanderson:
Milan are looking for a backup to first-choice Davide Calabria and Vanderson could turn out to be a good option to have on the bench. The youngster will get ample time under Stefano Pioli’s tutelage at the San Siro stadium.
After failing to buy Diogo Dalot on loan for the second time, the Rossoneri are in the market for a new right-back. They were closing in on a deal for Alessandro Florenzi from Roma, however, that deal never happened. And they are currently in a desperate situation at this back end of the transfer window.
Signing Vanderson might be a good backup for Calabria for Milan. However, paying the huge release clause does not make any sense for a completely unknown player. The youngster might become an excellent player in future, but, paying the big termination clause will be a big rise from the Rossoneri. So, it will be interesting to see what Stefano Pioli will decide to do at this late stage of the transfer window.
