Report: Permanent PSV move unlikely as Milan’s rivals Roma and Napoli eye Rodriguez

By Oliver Fisher -

Defender Ricardo Rodriguez is attracting interest from two of Milan’s Serie A rivals, according to reports from the Netherlands.

The Swiss international moved to PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season back in January, and despite the fact he has played less than 500 minutes due to the Coronavirus outbreak, there have been talks that the deal could be made permanent.

According to Eindhovens Dagblad, Rodriguez would not rule out the idea of a permanent switch to PSV, however there are a couple of major obstacles at present.

The former Wolfsburg man’s wages are a stumbling block as he currently earns €3million-a-year in Milan, but the report claims that Rodriguez would accept a pay cut to move to Eindhoven.

PSV could sign the 27-year-old for a transfer fee of around €1million, the report adds, due to the fact he coming into the last year of his contract. A possible swap deal with Denzel Dumfries has been mentioned but there is nothing concrete on that.

However, the report adds a twist at the end by claiming that the chances of Rodriguez actually joining PSV are ‘very small’ due to the fact both Napoli and Roma are interested.
