Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan left back Ricardo Rodriguez has refused to consider a move to Lokomotiv Moscow as part of the deal for midfielder Aleksey Miranchuk this summer. The Switzerland international spent the past 6 months on loan at PSV Eindhoven but his season was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic and was not redeemed by the Dutch club.

As we reported here, Milan were considering including him in the deal where Diego Laxalt has also been put on the table to entice Moscow to lower the cash sum for their attacking midfielder. The report today cites sources close to the player and notes that the entourage of the player are likely speaking to another club as he has just one year left on his contract with the Rossoneri and is unlikely to be able to compete with Theo Hernandez.
