Diego Laxalt’s time at Milan could already be at an end after a single season at the San Siro.

Laxalt was a surprise addition to the team last August, as the deal was done right before the close of the transfer window. However, he didn’t get very many chances and didn’t seem to be in the plans of Gennaro Gattuso at all later in the season as he barely played.
New manager Marco Giampaolo plays a different style than Gatttuso, but it still appears that Laxalt isn’t going to get very many chances, as the club has been linked to a number of deals for new left-sided fullbacks, including the high-profile pursuit of Real Madrid’s Theo Hernandez.
It’s now being reported that Laxalt has offers from other Serie A clubs such as Atalanta and Torino and even Zenit St Petersburg in Russia. If any of these are true, then perhaps the club should look to move the Uruguay international along to his next destination.
