Marco Fassone was in Germany to close the deal to bring Ricardo Rodriguez, and the medical has already been scheduled, while the pressure for Conti continues.
Milan have already confirmed Mateo Musacchio and Franck Kessié, and the official for Ricardo Rodriguez is closer.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, today was the decisive day for Rodriguez: CEO Fassone was in Germany to close the deal and he’s on his way back to Milan after practically concluding the negotiations.
The 24-year-old Swiss left-back will pack his bags and go to Italy in the coming hours and on Wednesday he will have his medical with the Rossoneri before signing the contract. Earlier reports suggested that Milan were looking to get a discount on the €18 million demanded by Wolfsburg (€15m + €3m bonuses) but it hasn’t been leaked yet whether Fassone was successful in that.
Rodriguez is not the only fullback Milan want as Andrea Conti remains a desired target as well. Di Marzio suggests that on Thursday there will be a meeting between the Diavolo and the agent of the 23-year-old, who played alongside Kessié in the jersey of Atalanta last season.
The intention of Fassone and Mirabelli is to close the deal for Conti before June 16, which is when the UEFA European Under-21 Championship starts. Conti and Donnarumma will both play for Italy.
