Milan have been very active on the market thus far and there could still be more to come for the Rossoneri, who are looking to bolster the right-wing. However, in order to do so, they need to sell a player.
Samu Castillejo is the current second-choice right-winger and has to leave before Milan can make any concrete moves on the market. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara simply can’t risk signing a new winger as the Spaniard could end up staying.
According to Antonio Vitiello, Milan have been approached regarding Castillejo but the attempts – from several Spanish teams – have only been for loans. The Rossoneri would like to sell him outright, of course, which makes the situation complicated.

As for replacing the former Villarreal man, Josip Ilicic is still an option for the right-wing and is considered a low-cost opportunity by the Milan management. It remains to be seen if they will be able to make a move for the Atalanta man.
