Sky: Deulofeu may have to settle for Napoli despite pushing for return to Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Winger Gerard Deulofeu has been pushing for a return to AC Milan this summer, but it seems he may still come back to Italy regardless.

Deulofeu joined Milan from Everton in January of 2017 on a six-month loan deal making 18 appearances, scoring four goals and adding three assists.

It was reported that the Rossoneri would try to make his deal a permanent one but in the end Barcelona triggered their option to buy the player back, though he eventually ended up back out on loan at Watford who got relegated last season.

Destined to leave the Championship club this summer, Gianluca Di Marzio gave an update to Sky Italia (via MilanNews) about the Spaniard’s situation.

He claims that Deulofeu has always expressed his desire to return to Milan, but to date Milan have other priorities. Napoli are trying to sign him on loan with an option to buy inserted, as their sporting director Giuntoli has always been a great admirer of the player.
