CM: ‘Work in progress’ on possible Castillejo exit as Instagram post fuels speculation

By Oliver Fisher -

Samu Castillejo may well have sent a farewell message to the AC Milan fans and to the club after last night’s win over Cagliari at San Siro.

The Spaniard was greeted by songs and warm applause from the Curva Sud received during the warm-up and in the end Stefano Pioli put him on the field practically 50 seconds before the final whistle, in place of Giroud, with the game already wrapped up.

It could be that the coach gave Giroud a chance to receive a standing ovation, but it could also have been a farewell for Samu. After the game, his post on Instagram has also fuelled this possible scenario as he put: “I am and will always be one of you.”

Meanwhile, Daniele Longo is reporting on Twitter that there has been movement on the Castillejo exit front but it might not necessarily be Getafe despite all the recent rumours, with the operation a ‘work in progress’.

  1. I feel sorry for him. Signing him was a mistake for both sides. He is too lightweight for Serie A, and it ended up with a several wasted seasons. For a club like ACM it is just a blink but for a player it is a one third of his prime career.
    I liked him when he played. He was always motivated, trying hard, running back to help in defense and keen to fight to the very end. He is not a bad person, he’s never shown discipline issues or conflicts with other players and managers.
    He is just not in the right place. Probably somewhere else in another league he could use his skills like Andre Silva did.
    Milan never was and never will be his home even he wanted it so hard.

    1. Agreed. Well said. A lot of us feel the same way. Samu is an excellent player and person, but the Milan system has not matched their style for them to show all their talents. Hopefully the next club will have that for them!
