New left-back: 3 Players to replace Rodriguez

AC Milan are in search of a new left-back that can replace Ricardo Rodruguez, perhaps permanently. The Rossoneri are considering 3 names.

MILAN TRANSFER NEWS – The Rossoneri opened the summer transfer market with the signing of Rade Krunic from Empoli. The midfield is AC Milan’s priority this summer and many purchases are planned in the department but incomings are expected also in defence.

Cristian Zapata and Ignazio Abate have left Milan as free agents. Now, Maldini and Boban, should find a new centre-back and a new full-back. With Calabria and Conti on the right, the management is in search of a left-back that can challenge Ricardo Rodriguez for a starting jersey.

After a stellar World Cup campaign in Russia, Ivan Strinic failed to make a single appearance with Milan this season. Heart problems stopped the Croatian to showcase his talent and the club is considering terminating his contract.

Another newcomer, Diego Laxalt, failed to make an impact too. AC Milan signed the Uruguay international for 17 million euros from Genoa but Laxalt’s performances were disappointing throughout the season. The 26-year-old will likely be sold this summer leaving Milan with just one left-back.

Milan need a new defender that can give Rodriguez a rest or possibly replace him for good. The Rossoneri are already working on finding the perfect player starting from Barcelona’s hot prospect.
