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.
