AC Milan player reaches agreement with next club

AC Milan defender Mateo Musacchio has already reach an agreement with his next club to join them on a free transfer.

AC Milan are moving in these weeks to renew the most urgent contracts, those of the players expiring in June 2021. One of these, however, has decided to leave Milanello and join a new club on a free transfer. Mateo Musacchio, still out because of a knee injury, will return to Spain where he spent the majority of his career.

According to reports by Todofichajes (via, AC Milan have informed Musacchio that his contract will not be renewed and the Argentine defender has already reached an agreement with his next club.

The 30-year-old centre back will return to Villarreal. That would be a sensational return for Musacchio who played for the yellow submarine for 8 seasons from 2009 to 2017.

Villarreal are a second home for Musacchio who left Argentina at a very young age, about 19, to join the Spanish club. In the summer of 2017 the Argentine defender joined the Rossoneri for a figure of 18 million euros as part of a number of players that were supposed to start a new cycle under president Yonghong Li.

During his 4 years at San Siro the former Villarreal has made 73 appearances with AC Milan. He was a regular starter in the first two seasons but eventually fell down the pecking order since the arrival of Simon Kjaer.
