Milan and Roma continue to negotiate for Mattia Destro, but things are moving slowly according to reports.

Mattia Destro has been the subject of transfer speculation since the summer where teams like Real Madrid and Chelsea were showing interest. Recently, Milan have been reported as being the close to getting the striker’s signature.

The Giallorossi forward is believed to be a target for the Diavolo, with Fernando Torres having left for Atletico Madrid and Giampaolo Pazzini seemingly not trusted by Coach Filippo Inzaghi.

According to Sky Italia, Milan have been told that the price for Destro is a mandatory €20m after an initial six month loan. The newspaper believes that the Lupi (nickname of AS Roma) have ruled out the possibility of a free loan and a loan without a forced redemption clause.

The capital club are believed to be looking to raise funds to sign Luiz Adriano from Shakhtar Donetsk, and as a result cannot consider letting Destro leave for less than €20m.

The Rossoneri are said to be offering €4m for the initial loan period, and would possibly look to make up the rest of the fee by sending Stephan El Shaarawy to Roma.
