The Blues boss Conte has taken desperate move to land a centre back this summer where there are only couple of days left when the transfer window will close. Firstly, he made an offer for Kalidou Koulibaly and Giorgio Chiellini and also keep trying for them still now but recently that hope to tie them would probably not successful. So, he has turned his attention to AC Milan centre back Alessio Romagnoli and offered almost €35 million for this 21st years old service. But Milan will not let him go this summer and straightly rejected their offer.
The Rossoneri wants to keep him for more couple of years where they bought him last summer in 11th August, 2015. This Italian national under 21 player made 34 Serie A appearances in his last season with the Devil.
Milan wants to use him in this season where he is compared with the great defender sometimes and by keeping him in back position, the Devil want to secure their defence. Though, there is also a rumoured spread in the early summer that the Devil willing to sell Carlos Bacca or Mattia De Sciglio but that news was smoke.
Now, this Italian youngster Alessio Romagnoli joined at the San Siro last summer with a transfer fee €25 million reportedly for five years and so, the Blues have thought that if they would offer some more than perhaps Milan would let him go to the Stamford Bridge. But this 21 years old Italian international has proved his potentiality in his last one season with the San Siro. But still there is a hope for Chelsea to tie him if they would offer more where other English giant Arsenal was linked this centre back once.
Conte is a bit upset that his prime target Kalidou Koulibaly would renew contract with Italian Napoli where this Italian side rejected Chelsea’s £40 million bid.
So, now, if Chelsea will fail to please Milan then they will have no other option except one. They would move for Nikola Maksimovic next. But still, the Pensioners have hope to get 21 years old Italian defender.
Alessio Romagnoli started his career with Italian Roma in 2012 where he spent three season including a season loan to Sampdoria in 2014/15. He made only 13 appearances with Roma and scored once in his two years career. But during the loan period with Sampdoria, He played almost 30 appearances and also scored twice. In his short career, till now he played almost 85 appearances with three different clubs and scored four times so far though, he did not get chance in Italian national team but is playing with under 21 national team.
