Di Marzio: Milan interested in Castillejo; the situation

By Dan Davies -

According to Di Marzio, Milan are interested in Villarreal winger Samu Castillejo and have already presented an offer.

Milan are still in heavy pursuit for a much-needed winger for next season, one who will strengthen the squad greatly and add depth.

Gattuso specifically wanted a winger, midfielder and a world-class striker for the upcoming season, so far achieving one out of the three.

With the Bakayoko affair now almost concluded (loan with a right of redemption for a total amount of €40m), all that remains is the hunt for a winger. In fact, the Rossoneri have identified Samu Castillejo as one of their targets. 

Milan would like to insert Bacca plus an adjustment of €18m, this is the offer presented by Leonardo and Maldini, with the Rossoneri taking the player on loan with an obligation.

At the moment, Villarreal have refused Milan’s proposal: in fact, for Castillejo to leave, the Spaniards are asking for €25m, without the inclusion of Bacca in the operation. However, the Rossoneri are hoping to be able to unlock a deal which satisfies both parties.
