Repubblica: Milan name asking price as Schalke eye Rodriguez

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have set their asking price for defender Ricardo Rodriguez amid interest from Schalke, a report claims.

Theo Hernandez joined from Real Madrid earlier in the summer in a €20million deal and looks set to take Rodriguez’s starting berth in time.

It was reported on Monday that Hernandez is currently considered ahead of the Swiss international in the pecking order, while Milan have four left-backs currently on the books.

It was also reported on Tuesday that Bundesliga side Schalke have an interest in Rodriguez, who is assessing his future at Milan.

Now, Wednesday’s edition of La Repubblica goes one further by confirming interest from Schalke.

They also state that Milan have slapped a €20m asking price on the 26-year-old, who joined the club from Wolfsburg in a deal worth €15m plus bonuses two years ago.
