CM: Shevchenko already showing interest in signing Milan winger for Genoa

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan winger Samu Castillejo is attracting interest from Genoa where Andriy Shevchenko has just taken over as manager, according to a report.

Castillejo was heavily linked with a move over the summer as he had been reduced to being a bit-part player under Stefano Pioli, but he put a difficult recent period behind him and produced an excellent impact off the bench in the 3-2 win over Hellas Verona last month.

At the end of the game he did not hold back tears as he was overwhelmed by the affection of his team-mates, and reported that he wants to stay at the club and fight for his place. He has not made any further inroads since, however.

According to the same source, Genoa have expressed an interest in signing the former Villarreal man, and it is worth noting that Andriy Shevchenko has just taken over there as the head coach.

  1. Excellent. Sheva and our old buddies at Genoa are going to do us another favor by taking Samu off our hands. Maybe they’ll even give us cash plus Andrea Cambiaso.👍

  2. I hope he goes to Spain. He is not physically ready to play in Serie A. Too lightweight, no muscles, no strength. Would be a better chance for him to reboot his career. And I don’t want to see him playing against us. Compared to Hakan he always gave his best for ACM.
    Anyway I wish him all the best. He is a good person and deserves to find his team.
