CM: Details of Laxalt’s loan to Torino – how he could return to Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Further details of Diego Laxalt’s loan move from AC Milan to Torino this summer have reportedly been revealed.

The Uruguay international was constantly linked with a move away from the Rossoneri over the summer after failing to impress following his arrival from Genoa.

Rumours intensified when Theo Hernandez arrived in a €20m deal from Real Madrid, and Laxalt eventually secured his exit towards the end of the summer window.

Gianluca Di Marzio claimed at the time that Milan will receive €500K for the loan, with Torino having an option to buy set at €11.5m, though there were also rumours that it is in fact an obligation to buy.

According to a report from Calciomercato.com, there are ‘no clauses in the deal that would turn the option into an obligation’.

This means that il Toro will simply have to decide whether they wish to purchase the 26-year-old for the pre-agreed fee next summer. If not, he will return to Milan.

Laxalt has played mostly as a left midfielder for Torino so far this season and after struggling for game time initially, he started their last two league matches.
