Gianluca di Marzio via MilanLive.it is reporting that AC Milan are working to sell Samu Castillejo and Diego Laxalt this summer as the side looks to cut the dead weight and bolster its revenues.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that the winger is not interested in a move away this summer despite the desire of the management to sell him. Milan need more quality down that right wing as that has been one of the poorest positions in the past couple of seasons. They are reporting that Espanyol and Real Betis have showed interest in the player thus far.

Tuttosport via MilanLive.it are reporting that Real Betis are in fact in pole position to sign the 26 year old Castillejo this summer as they are in the market for a right winger. The player is valued at about 10 million euros by Milan but a loan with a buy out is a possibility.
