Ricardo Rodriguez is a name on the books of Bayern and BVB, and while it’s claimed that Milan are willing to listen to offers, coach Gennaro Gattuso reportedly wants to keep his left back.
Rodriguez joined Milan last summer for €15m plus €3m bonuses, and despite not performing consistently well throughout the season, he was always one of the guarantees in the starting XI of both Vincenzo Montella and Gennaro Gattuso.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky, Milan are currently not involved in any kind of negotiations for Rodriguez, but Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have both identified the 25-year-old as a target.
Di Marzio’s report was also confirmed by the sources of Milannews.it, who claim that after the World Cup, in which Ricardo will play with the Swiss national team, an official offer could arrive from Bayern, whose director of sport is Hasan Salihamidžić who played with Rodriguez in Wolfsburg, and from BVB, whose coach is Lucien Favre, who worked with the Milan player at FC Zürich.
Milannews.it insists that Gattuso would like to keep Rodriguez and could ask the management to not sell him, but it is also said that in the transfer market, all offers will be evaluated and considered, and so – should there be an offer that suits Milan and the player, a transfer could happen.
Left-back Ivan Strinić has already confirmed he signed a three-year deal with Milan, while in recent weeks, Fiorentina’s Cristiano Biraghi has been linked with a move to training center Milanello.
