AC Milan’s Diego Laxalt is spending the 2020/21 season on loan at Celtic and the left-back enjoyed regular minutes in the first half of the campaign.
This saw reports in Italian media about the Bhoys’ interest in making the 28-year-old’s stay permanent in the summer.
On January 14th, Milan News stated the Scottish Premiership club are looking to reach an agreement with the Rossoneri for the fullback’s transfer.
Since then, several developments have taken place at Celtic.
The Uruguayan has made only one start in the last nine league matches and was an unused substitute in six of them. Earlier this week, Neil Lennon resigned as the club’s manager and Celtic are yet to appoint his successor.
According to Torino Granata, Celtic would have moved to make the South American’s stay permanent, but for a figure less than €9m demanded by Milan.
However, the managerial situation in Glasgow can have an impact on Laxalt’s stay at Celtic beyond his loan spell.
In other words, the Scottish side, as of now are ‘undecided’ and are ‘not certain’ to sign the player on permanent transfer, even though he has ‘done well so far’.
