Barcelona’s search to strengthen their defence has reportedly taken them to AC Milan and centre-back Alessio Romagnoli.

Sport report that the 25-year-old is on Barcelona’s radar, although he is likely to cost around €50 million.

That is a price that’s likely to be out of Barcelona’s reach, but they are willing to include players in the deal. Something that we are starting to hear in most Barca rumors.

The report reckons the Rossoneri like “several” Barcelona players, with Ivan Rakitic and Rafinha being named as possible options.

Romagnoli has also been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, while AC Milan want to renew his current deal that expires in 2022.
