Tuttosport via are reporting that AC Milan could go back in for Wigan Athletic let back Antonee Robinson after a failed move in the winter transfer window . The United States international has a clause in his contract that triggers a release clause in the event that Wigan are relegated which has occurred. The defender has 39 appearances in all competitions this season where he scored 1 goal and provided 1 assist.

The Telegraph are reporting that the figure of the release clause is a measly £1.5 million which is a huge bargain from the reported 7 million that would've been paid in January. This could be another Kjaer type deal that costs peanuts but has a huge upside as the left back was selected by Maldini and could be a good deputy for Theo Hernandez.
