Loaned to Celtic for the season, Diego Laxalt fulfilled the role that was asked of him at Parkhead throughout the campaign.

Enjoying himself under Neil Lennon, the Uruguayan looked like he could end up being a recruit for the Scottish club, but that no longer appears to be the case.

There was a point where Milan were ‘ready to negotiate’ his sale to Celtic, but right at the end of the campaign, the Glasgow side ‘abruptly changed their mind’, according to Il Milanista.

That means Laxalt will be returning to San Siro after just one season in the green and white shirt, where the Serie A side will need to decide what to do with him.

Either they sell him permanently to the highest bidder, or they keep him and use him as the backup for Théo Hernández, currently the starting left-back under Stefano Pioli.

During his time at Parkhead, Laxalt made 28 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal in a 2-2 draw against Hibernian back in November 2020.
