Italian newspaper Tuttosport has today a story about AC Milan fullbacks, including those who could arrive or departure from the club this season.
One of the players who gets a mention is Ricardo Rodriguez, who’s joined the club on a €15m move from Wolfsburg back in 2017.
The Swiss international has been linked to a handful of clubs in the last summer, including West Ham United, but ended up being held by the Rossoneri.
Now Tuttosport writes that Rodriguez isn’t very happy at being benched, and in case he can’t recover his place, there’s a chance he could be leaving the club in January.
The outlet recalls that West Ham tried to sign him on a loan, for which they would have paid €3m, and then include a buying option of between €12m and €14m.
Although there’s no information on a new attempt from the Hammers, Tuttosport says the player could now be sold to the Premier League or the Bundesliga. So that’s a clear sign that Manuel Pellegrini’s side could have a new chance.
