According to Tuttosport newspaper, Milan could benefit from Joshua Zirkzee’s return to Bayern Munich, accepting a player-plus-cash swap deal for Theo Hernandez or Mike Maignan.

Zirkzee has emerged as Milan’s primary target to strengthen their attack in the summer, but Bologna‘s asking price will exceed €60m. Bayern Munich are the only exception, as the Bavarians have a clause to re-sign the Dutch striker for €40m at the end of the current campaign.

Tuttosport reports Milan may benefit from the forward’s return to Germany over the summer as Bayern are interested in their stars Maignan and Theo Hernandez.

If Zirkzee returns to Bayern, then Milan could agree to send one between Maignan and Theo to Germany for money, plus the 22-year-old forward.

According to the report, the Rossoneri have not set an asking price for their French stars, but it is unlikely that they will accept less than €80m-100m for each of them.

Both Theo and Maignan will soon meet Milan to discuss a contract extension, and according to Tuttosport, they will both demand a new €7m-a-year salary, including add-ons.
