AC Milan full-back Ricardo Rodriguez is all set to confirm his move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce having rejected a move to PSV Eindhoven, reports claim.
The full-back is set to move on after losing his starting spot to the impressive Theo Hernandez, with the Swiss international wanting to play a big part for his country at this year’s upcoming European Championships.
It appeared as though Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven had sunk the decisive blow after meeting with Milan on Tuesday and again on Wednesday afternoon.
However, they have always had competition as numerous reports emerged claiming Fenerbahce have not given up on their pursuit, with Rodriguez’s agent Gianluca Di Domenico having presented an offer from the Turkish side.
Now, it seems like the blitz from Fenerbahce has been the decisive one as they have closed a deal with Milan. Our transfer expert Vito Angele – among other reliable sources – is reporting that the 27-year-old has chosen to move to Istanbul.
The basis of the deal will be a six-month loan with obligation to buy set at €5m, and Milan even rejected PSV’s superior office to satisfy the will of the former Wolfsburg man.
All done for #Rodriguez to #Fenerbahce: he will leave on loan with an obligation to buy set at €5million. #Milano satisfied the player by refusing an offer from #PSV that was higher. @SempreMilanCom #SempreMilan
