Alfredo Pedulla is reporting that AC Milan left back Ricardo Rodriguez could still exit in the January transfer window as Napoli come calling. The Switzerland international has a good rapport with former Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso as a regular starter under his tenure and the two could be reunited in Naples. The talks have opened after Fenerbahce seemingly turned their back on the player after advanced talks last week.
Nuovi contatti tra #Napoli e #Milan per Ricardo #Rodriguez: gli azzurri vogliono capire la fattibilità dell'operazione. Il terzino svizzero non è stato convocato per la sfida di coppa Italia @cmdotcom— Daniele Longo (@86_longo) January 28, 2020
The initial report shows Napoli offering a paid loan deal of 1 million euros for the defender with an option to buy for another 5 or 6 million euros. Milan are reportedly still holding out for an obligation to buy and talks will continue this week ahead of the deadline day. Milan could also hold onto the left back as a cover for Theo Hernandez for the remainder of the season.
