AC Milan Will Not Sell Star Defender to Bitter Rivals Juventus

Juventus are apparently very interested in a summer move for AC Milan full back Mattia De Sciglio and the Rossoneri are set to stand firm and reject any approaches.

The league leaders made bids to Milan in both the January and Summer transfer windows of this year, both of which were rejected but they are set to try again. According to Mediaset Premium Sport via Calciomercato Milan are not willing to sell to their rivals under any circumstances.

The Italian champions look desperate for a right back as Stephan Lichtsteiner’s contract runs out this summer and Dani Alves’ has not had such great form since signing from Barcelona on a free transfer this summer.
