Ricardo Rodríguez’s time at Milan has definitely come to an end and he will join Marco Giampaolo at Torino.

Rodríguez joined Milan in the summer of 2017, but never truly reached the heights the Diavolo thought he would when he arrived from Wolfsburg three years ago.

The 27-year-old’s contract expires next season and Milan have chosen to part ways with him as they have their starting left-back in place with Theo Hernández.

Rodríguez spent the second half of the 2019/20 at PSV Eindhoven but the Dutch club didn’t make an attempt to keep the former Zürich man. Torino, however, with Marco Giampaolo as their coach, have decided to go for Rodríguez and they have now reached an agreement with all parties.

As reported by Milannews.it, Sky Italia and others, Torino will pay Milan around €3m plus bonuses for Rodríguez, allowing them to make a loss on Rodríguez in terms of the balance sheet. For the player, a four-year contract is ready, after a deal was struck between Torino and Ricardo’s agents today. There was initially a problem agreeing a salary but the two sides found an understanding.

Only the official announcement is missing at this point. Rodríguez leaves Milan after playing 92 games played in Serie A and 4 goals to his name. More movements are expected in the defense.

It really infuriates me when some teams cry about paying 2M extra. The dude was 15-18M worth 3 seasons ago and now we are already saying that he can leave for 5M, it’s disrespectful towards the club to bargain for extra 2M. Will we give a away Krunic as well? the guy shouldn’t be sold for less than 8M.

You have to ask though has his value as a player increased or reduced since then.

One source said that Torino only wants to pay 2 m. Silly. Milan always sell cheap for its unwanted players

A great defender, very good as a CB in a three man defense. However, the Milan shirt needed more for a foreign guy, your position is taken by Theo and Romagnoli. Thanks for everything Ricardo, good luck.

Agree. Romag can also play as DLC in three man defense. What we need is a strong DRC who can play both as a DC and DR. It’s Milenkovic and Upamecano. Kalulu is promising but still young.

Romagnoli’s positioning has been very interesting, he is playing in a very advanced role while in attack, ready to recover the possession . Pioli has been very smart managing his deficiencies. IMO Romagnoli is not in the top 10 cb in the world, I would say not even in the top 20. Elegant tackler but slow and weak on the air. Kjaer is the last man in defence and he saves our ass everytime, Zapata had to do everything. We need Chiesa, 50 million is a bargain and will fix the right wing. Kalulu already arrived, Conti and Saelesmakers will… Read more »
