Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez has chosen to join AC Milan once his contract expires next June, according to a report from Spain.
Calciomercato.it reported earlier in the week that Milan are attentive to Vazquez’s situation as he will leave Real Madrid at no cost because they have no intention of renewing his contract expiring next June.
The Spaniard can play on either wing, and the report claims that the 29-year-old could become an ‘excellent opportunity’ for the Italian clubs, adding that Milan could go from simple admiration to more concrete interest.
According to DonBalon, Vazquez has made the decision to join Milan as he is frustrated for two reasons. The first is that he has played more minutes as a defender than as a forward as a result of the injuries to Carvajal, Odriozola and Nacho.
He believes that now is the time for a fresh start and that Milan are the right destination because they are a club on the rise where he would find more playing time.
The second reason is that his salary is one of the lowest in the Madrid squad at €3.5million per year. Zidane is very upset by the treatment the player has received and believes that he deserves more recognition for his efforts over the past few seasons, but it seems like the 29-year-old has made his mind up already.
