Rúben Dias: "During the moments when the tension was great, it was necessary to find that extra will. We faced a very strong Italy, with a lot of dynamics, and we fought with our will and mutual support for qualification." #ITAPOR pic.twitter.com/naTnKB3fvO— Football 24/7 (@foetball247) November 17, 2018
According to Tuttosport, the Bianconeri were keeping a close eye on the 21-year-old centre-back at San Siro.
It’s going to be a very tough task to prise him away, because he only recently extended his contract after Olympique Lyonnais saw their €30m offer rejected. The release clause in his contract is now €60m.
Last night was his sixth senior cap for Portugal, a 0-0 result that put them in the Nations League Final Four.
