Tuttosport: Two imminent summer exits mean Milan are ready to return for Wigan star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could go back in for Wigan Athletic defender Antonee Robinson during the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Robinson was all set to join Milan on deadline day of the January mercato even landing in the city and undergoing medicals, however an irregularity with his heart was revealed and as such the move was called off, with the USA international requiring surgery to fix the issue.

In the summer though Milan will likely still have the same problem to solve in that they require a new back-up left-back to give Theo Hernandez occasional rest.

According to what Tuttosport are reporting (via MilanLive), Ricardo Rodriguez, forced to ask for the transfer after the French exploit, would not stay with the Rossoneri if PSV Eindhoven did not keep him.

Meanwhile, Diego Laxalt – who returned early from his loan at Torino – will also be up for sale as he looks for more consistent playing time elsewhere, with some sources suggesting a return to Genoa could be on the cards.

Therefore it is not excluded that Milan will go back in for Robinson, with the scouting area ready to target young players who would see the move as an opportunity to progress and learn from Theo rather than suffer on the bench.
