CM: Castillejo’s exit blocked despite interest from several LaLiga clubs and Genoa – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

Samu Castillejo is still not a part of AC Milan’s plans but a January exit seems to have become more complicated for the time being, a report claims.

According to Calciomercato.com, the fact that Stefano Pioli seems to prefer both Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias on the right side means Castillejo’s prospects of playing time have decreased further, and there are several Spanish teams interested in making an offer.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have offered the player out to LaLiga clubs such as Celta Vigo and Getafe but also Espanyol and Real Mallorca. The problem is that the former Villarreal man currently receives €2.5m net per year, with a contract expiry of June 2023.

Genoa have been keen on the 26-year-old since Andriy Shevchenko became head coach but now he might be leaving the club given the less than ideal start he has had. Even a loan is not easy because of the salary issue, so at the moment the Spaniard’s exit is blocked.

    €2.5M?!
    Insane
    Just terminate the contract
    Surely a lesson here for ACM to include a contract clause for early termination if players don’t meet certain objectives

      If you terminate the contract you have to pay the rest of the months that are left so it will cost just as much as keeping him without the chance of selling him or using him when there’s no other option (eg. Injury crisis). So that would be the most stupid thing to do. Inserting a ‘release clause’ based on performance is illegal. You can only terminate the contract by paying out or in mutual consent. The latter only happens when the player has a valid alternative.
      I think you have to come up with a better plan.

      AC Milan Will not get quality player if you are the owner because of your plan terminate contract easily and want to insert it on contract . If you terminate his contract then you Will have pay full salary until contract ends. If you terminate and don’t wanna pay then your club Will be relegated or banned from UEFA tournament . You must respect contract

    Castillejo was inherited, not selected by Pioli. He’s done better than several others who are part of Pioli’s plans.

    If we have to keep him, with how bad Saelemaekers and Diaz have been I’d run Castillejo at RW and either Messias or Maldini at AM. Why not.
