GdS: Sale of defender could help Milan fund move for €25m Barcelona man

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could use the sale of defender Ricardo Rodriguez to fund a move for Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo, according to a report.

Rodriguez is set to start for the first time in almost three months when the Rossoneri visit Atalanta on Sunday, with Theo Hernandez out due to suspension.

The Swiss international has seen his playing time drastically reduced since Hernandez’s arrival from Real Madrid in the summer, and believe that Fenerbahce have a real chance of signing him next month.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via, Milan could use the fee they receive for the 27-year-old full-back to close a deal for Barcelona centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo.

We revealed on Friday that Todibo is a target for the Rossoneri, while Gazzetta went one further on Tuesday afternoon by claiming that Todibo has requested a move in January due to a lack of game time, with talks at an early stage.

Gianluca Di Marzio believes that Milan are looking for a loan with the obligation or option to buy, but that the Catalan side are demanding a €25million fee plus a buy-back option.
