According to Calciomercato.com, Serie A club, AC Milan, have their eye on United States international starlet Julian Green. The Bayern Munich winger is struggling to find minutes under Pep Guardiola and is looking for a solution.
With Pep on his way out to join Manchester City, the German giants are wanting to wait until their future boss, Carlo Ancelotti, joins this summer to make the final call on the 20-year-old’s future.
CM.com’s Federico Albrizio writes in his article that Green has been tossed to Bayern’s reserve team. In addition, the reporter is confident that if a deal is to be completed between AC Milan and Bayern Munich, the Tampa-Bay native will join Milan for a fee around € 1-2 million.
This year Green is playing for Bayern Munich’s second team, called Regionalliga Bayern, where he has scored 10 goals in 23 seasonal games. Representatives from the Italian club have scouted Green several times this season and the Rossoneri are confident they can seal the player’s transfer for a fee in the region of € 1-2 million.
Green has been a part of Bayern Munich’s youth academy since 2010. The American winger participated with the youth squad until he signed a professional contract with the club that would make him stay until 2017. Green has spent most of his Bayern senior career with the second team, however, Green constantly practices with the senior team, learning from the likes of Robben and Ribery. He went on to join fellow Bundesliga club Hamburger SV on loan for the 2014-2015 season. Julian made 5 appearances for the senior before he was sent to play with the reserve squad. Julian Green is now currently back with Bayern, playing for their second team, called Regionalliga Bayern.
Green has been a bright spot in American soccer ever since his appearance in the 2014 World Cup, where he scored an unbelievable goal against Belgium in the 107th minute. His goal made Green the youngest player in U.S. History to score in the World Cup. In addition, he became the youngest player to score in the World Cup since FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi did for Argentina back in 2006.
