Chukwueze left out of Villarreal friendly as Milan move appears imminent

By Oliver Fisher -

A sign has come regarding the future of Samuel Chukwueze as Villarreal have left him out of their squad for today’s friendly against Hannover 96.

Villarreal’s preseason preparations are continuing and Chukwueze played as a started in their last friendly, but he will not take any part in their game against the Bundesliga outfit today amid rumours he is close to joining Milan.

Di Marzio is reporting that Milan are confident of closing the deal for Chukwueze, who is ‘getting closer and closer’ to joining the Rossoneri and the deal could close between Monday and Tuesday.

The latest idea from Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada is to include Matteo Gabbia in the negotiation to lower the amount requested by the Spanish club (about €20m, bonuses to be defined).

After the painful sale of Sandro Tonali, Milan are having a transfer window showing serious intent to improve the squad as much as possible to try and compete on multiple fronts.
