AC Milan looking to sign Real Madrid winger

Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez is headed to AC Milan, a report claims. The Spanish player becomes a free agent at the end of the season.

According to reports from Don Balon (via, Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez has chosen AC Milan as his next club. The contract of the 29-year-old Spanish player expires in 2021 and president Florentino Perez is not willing to offer him a new deal and aims to lower the team’s wage cap.

Lucas has understood that Madrid have already made up their mind and is looking for a new club. Among other things, he is among the least paid players of the squad earning 3.5 million euros per season. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is quite furious with the decision of Florentino Perez given the great contribution Lucas Vazquez has given over the years.

An excellent opportunity for the Rossoneri who can sign the player as a free agent at the end of the season or for a modest figure in January. Vazquez has spent practically his entire career playing for Los Blancos primarily on the right wing. A very experienced player that has won numerous trophies during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

AC Milan have identified Vazquez as the perfect replacement for Samu Castillejo. The former Villarreal has failed to cement himself as a regular starter for the Rossoneri. AC Milan are open to sell him if an offer of 15 million euros arrives either in January or at the end of the season.

Technical director Paolo Maldini wants to have more quality in that area of the pitch and Lucas Vazquez is seen as a radical improvement over Samu Castillejo. The Real Madrid right winger has made 216 appearances with the Spanish giants scoring 24 goals and providing 47 assists. His pace, ability to run directly at opposition defences and his preference for hugging the touchline make him a fine weapon to use both when chasing games and when trying to run them down.
