Spanish newspaper Marca claims Carlo Ancelotti has asked Milan for ‘Little Maldini’ Mattia De Sciglio.
The versatile 20-year-old can play as a right-back or left-back, plus in wide midfield roles when needed, and is already a senior Italy regular.
This morning Marca splashed on their front page the report that Ancelotti has specifically requested De Sciglio for this summer to reinforce Real Madrid.
Known as the ‘new Paolo Maldini,’ De Sciglio grew up in the Milan youth academy.
It is suggested the Rossoneri could be prepared to release him for as little as €12m and his current contract expires in June 2016.
