According to Sky Italia – as cited by MilanNews.it – the young French defender has indeed convinced Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban that he would be a worthwhile addition in January.
The pair have already contacted the LaLiga club to start a negotiations, however there is no deal as of yet despite the previous reports.
Sky claim that the formula could be a loan deal with obligation to buy, however the Blaugrana are demanding no less than €25m, Milan believes that €15m is the right amount.
