AC Milan are no longer interested in signing Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee as the wage demanded by the player’s agent is too high for the Serie A giants. With the Italians out of the race now, Manchester United are the first favourites to sign the striker.

Zirkzee is available for an affordable fee as there is a £34m release clause in his contract. Bologna technical director Giovanni Sartori recently admitted the forward is “99.9%” likely to leave the club this summer.

“Zirkzee has a clause so he will leave 99.9 per cent. We have been thinking about his replacement for months. It won’t be easy but we will work to replace him, we already have some names, some ideas.”

Man Utd had been considering potential alternatives, with a report boldly claiming they have been plotting a ‘sensational return’ for Romelu Lukaku if case they missed out on Zirkzee. 

However, the report from Italy claims AC Milan will now turn their attention to Lukaku, who looks certain to leave Chelsea this summer.
