Diego Laxalt has attracted interest from two Serie A clubs, while Parma are also open to taking Ivan Strinić.
Laxalt’s agent has admitted that his client would like to play more next season, and according to Sky Italia there are clubs in Italy that are interested in Diego.
Yesterday there was a meeting between Technical Director Paolo Maldini and Parma’s Director of Sport Daniele Faggiano. Parma are looking to sign a left back and Laxalt is at the top of their wish-list.
During the meeting Parma have also asked for information about Strinić, but Milannews.it’s Antonio Vitiello claims that Parma are serious about the Uruguayan, who is unlikely to find a lot of space at Milan this season, and are even ready to take him on loan with obligation to buy.
There are two main hurdles in the possible deal, however: the first is the salary of Laxalt, who earns nearly €2m per season and would have to take a pay-cut to facilitate a move to Parma – or to SPAL, who according to Sky are interested in him as well after the injury of Mohamed Fares; the second hurdle is the fact that, as highlighted by RadioRossonera’s Pietro Balzano Prota, Milan would have to sell Laxalt for at least €12.6m in order to avoid a capital loss in the books.
More updates are expected in the next days. In any case, Laxalt will be with Milan at Fadil Vokrri Stadium tonight for the friendly match in Kosovo against KF Feronikeli (20:45 CEST kickoff).
