Sampdoria are in talks with striker Simone Zaza about a new deal.
Zaza has been linked with AC Milan.
â€śThere has never been direct contact with Milan,â€ť Cristian Maifredi told Ita Sport Press. â€śZaza has a contract at Sampdoria and weâ€™re dealing with them right now.
â€śThere is a negotiation in place regarding a renewal, but I donâ€™t think weâ€™ll be seeing the white smoke any time soon.
â€śItâ€™s only normal that in renewal talks there is a difference between salary demand and salary offer, but let us see whether that gap will reduce.
â€śOnly if Sampdoria decide to sell will I look for other solutions.â€ť
