AC Milan hold talks for Emerson Royal and Marc Roca

AC Milan held talks today with the agents of Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca and Real Betis/Barcelona right-back Emerson Royal.

Graziano Battistini and Sebastiano Salaroli of Promoesport, who represent the players, were pictured by MilanNews.it arriving at the meeting.

Emerson, 21, is co-owned by Barcelona who have the option to buy him outright from Betis for €6m in 2021.

Barca could choose to bring forward the transfer in order to sell Emerson for a profit, with Milan very interested.

Any deal for Emerson won’t be easy, with a prohibitive €30m price-tag on his head following an impressive season.

Marc Roca, 23, is a player certain to be on the move following Espanyol’s relegation from La Liga.

The talented central midfielder has been on Milan’s radar for some time, while Arsenal and Real Madrid have also been mentioned.

With Espanyol dropping to the second tier of Spanish football, Roca will be available for a lower price than before.

Milan are rethinking their summer recruitment plans after calling off a move to bring in Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick’s non-arrival means potential deals for Dominik Szoboszlai, Patrik Schick and Milot Rashica are now unlikely.
