According to Fabrizio Romano, AC Milan is in talks with FC Barcelona for potential target Junior Firpo. The Spanish defender, 24, appeared in 18 games for Barca this past season and might welcome a new experience to increase his playing time.

Meanwhile, sporting director Paolo Maldini is also in talks with Real Madrid to retain midfielder Brahim Diaz, who played for the Serie A side this past season on loan from Madrid. The two clubs are talking about potentially extending the loan for another season, with option to buy for AC Milan at the end of next season. A deal might be imminent, as it is believed that Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti isn't keen on having him on the team, and as a result the Spaniard will play next season's UEFA Champions League with AC Milan. Diaz appeared in 37 games for AC Milan this past season, with 7 goals and 4 assists in all competitions.
