AC Milan are doing their best to ruin the fingers and brains of football journalists world wide. Today - they’ve confirmed a completed deal for Swiss left-back Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsberg, the agent of Andrea Conti has been spotted meeting with Milan and now this.

Of course.

Keita Balde Diao has been one of Serie A’s most electric players. He’s no Dries Mertens or Andrea Belotti - but he’s productive. The former Barca youth product smashed in 16 goals this campaign with 5 assists on the side. That’s production that Milan need and now - they will get it with a fully revamped left side featuring Balde Diao and Ricardo Rodriguez. Better than Niang - right?

We’ve no idea of a fee, but details will surely come through in the future - what we do know, is that Milan are poised to make another big signing in the coming days - or weeks.
