There has been yet another twist in the saga surrounding the future of AC Milan full-back Ricardo Rodriguez after Tuesday’s advances from PSV Eindhoven.
We revealed that work is continuing on the sale of Rodriguez, with confirmation from Voetbal International that PSV emissaries had travelled to Milan to negotiate directly with the Rossoneri in the hopes of signing the defender.
Milan value Rodriguez at around the €10million mark, while the Eredivisie side for now are thinking of a €6-7million figure. Di Marzio then stated in his bulletin that the Dutch side are closing in on a move for around €6m.
According to Radio Rossonera reporter Pietro Balzano Prota on Twitter though, Fenerbahce are not giving up their hopes of signing Rodriguez this month and will launch another attempt in the next 24 hours.
He adds that the Swiss international would prefer a move to the Turkish club over PSV, with the situation in ‘constant evolution’.
È corsa a 2 per #RicardoRodriguez!
Il #Fenerbahce non molla e rilancia, domani nuovi appuntamenti!

In addition, La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira is claiming that the 27-year-old is not convinced by the idea of a move to Eindhoven and wants Fenerbahce.
The Istanbul-based club have apparently offered a €1m paid load with option to buy set at €6m, but Milan want that to be an obligation to buy instead.
Despite last night's meeting, Ricardo #Rodriguez does not seem inclined to join #PSV. His first choice is and remains #Fenerbahce who offer €1M for loan with option to buy for €6M. #Milan want the obligation to buy and not only option to sell him. Talks ongoing
