AC Milan left back Ricardo Rodriguez has reportedly reached an agreement with Turkish outfit Fenerbahce over a swap after losing his place to new arrival Theo Hernandez. Rodriguez has fallen from his starting spot under Stefano Pioli since the arrival of the young France international from Real Madrid and does not look to be able to compete for the spot.

Fenerbahce fans have been openly calling for Rodriguez to join them even chanting his name at games and the defender has seemed open to the move. Nico Schira is now reporting the left back has accepted the offer from Turkey but the club has failed to find an agreement with Milan at the moment. The disagreement is over the type of deal as Fenerbahce want a loan deal while Milan want a permanent transfer. Talks should be ongoing for the moment to resolve the situation. Rodriguez arrived in Milan for €15 million plus €2 million in bonuses two and a half seasons ago. His annual wage is at €2.1 million per year and his current contract runs until the end of the 2021 season.
