We’re back with the latest report about AC Milan’s target for this summer window and this time we’re talking about a much needed left back. The Rossoneri have had a lot of problems in this position all season long, but especially on Sunday night when they had to put Leonel Vangioni against AS Roma’s Mohamed Salah and we all know the result of that...

With Luca Antonelli still dealing with some physical issue, Vincenzo Montella tried every player he had available in that position, but it was not a success. That’s why the latest news reported by Gianluca Di Marzio regarding Wolfsburg’s left back Ricardo Rodríguez could lead to a lot of optimism for the Rossoneri’s future. Milan’s management met Rodríguez’s agent in these days and it looks like they reached an agreement with the player, who will be happy to come to Italy. However, they’re still negotiating with the club, which is likely to set the price to the €22.5 million of his release clause, a bit expensive for the defender.

Rodríguez is definitely not a defensive-minded player with great technique and an amazing ability to shoot with his left foot. Talking about former Rossoneri, he’s very similar to one of the best left back in Milan’s history: Serginho. If you’re not old enough to remember how good Serginho was, here are a bunch of highlights.

Anyway, even if they have a verbal agreement with the player, the negotiations with Wolfsburg are still in the early phases. Hopefully Fassone and Mirabelli will be able to bring him to Milan to fix one of the team’s biggest issues.
