AC Milan have given up trying to sign Newcastle full-back Davide Santon, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
With Djamel Mesbah joining Parma in January and Ignazio Abate widely tipped to leave at the end of the current campaign, the Rossoneri are desperate to sign at least one high-quality full-back in the summer.
Milan attempted to sign former Inter hotshot Davide Santon in January, and were hoping to renew their interest in the summer, but it appears the Italy international will not be returning to San Siro any time soon.
Il Corriere dello Sport claims that the Rossoneri have dropped their interest in the player after being informed of Newcastle’s €10 million valuation.
After he managed to kick-start his career at St James Park, Santon was repeatedly linked with a return to Serie A, but it appears he is quite happy to remain at Newcastle for the time being.
The 22-year-old remains an important part of the side that are tipped to continue their uptrend in fortunes in the coming years.
