AC Milan to beat Barcelona and Real Madrid by landing 13m rated striker

AC Milan are on the verge of completing a bid for 19-year-old Marcos Paulo from Fluminense. The young striker has been on the shortlist of various large European clubs, including FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. According to Tuttosport, Milan are readying an offer for the Brazilian born Portuguese which could be around €13m to €15m.

The Italian giants are keen on rejuvenating their squad this summer, with several young forwards being linked to the club. AZ starlet Myron Boadu has been tipped as their top favourite, but the Dutch club is not prepared to let the Dutch international leave for anything below €40m.

That has turned their attention to Paulo, who has made 36 appearances for Fluminense, scoring eight goals and providing six assists. The young striker is an international for Portugal, playing for both the U19 and U21 teams. It is believed the young striker is keen on moving to Europe and the Serie A could be an ideal destination.
