Ricardo Rodriguez’s agent dismisses AC Milan exit claim

The representative of Ricardo Rodriguez has firmly dismissed the ongoing speculation, which has linked the Switzerland international with a summer exit. The left back only arrived at the Rossoneri from Wolfsburg last summer but there have been suggestions that he could be offloaded to compensate for the Financial Fair Play regulations.

However, his agent Gianluca Di Domenico has now dismissed the claims by saying: “Will he stay at Milan? That’s like asking me if I would [want to] be thin for the next 10 years. Seriously, he has a contract at Milan, he has done well and is playing for a coach in Gennaro Gattuso who likes him a lot. At the moment, Ricardo knows what he has in Milan, although it is true that in football, you can’t 100% say that you will stay a Milan player because this sport is like that. What I can say about Ricardo though is that he’s really happy to play for such an important club as the Rossoneri.”

Rodriguez was a regular on the left side of the defence for Milan last season and he ended the campaign with 43 appearances across all competitions. Nevertheless, he was not as effective going forward from his Wolfsburg days and he managed to contribute just three goals and two assists through the campaign.

Since the close of the season, Milan have got into trouble with UEFA regarding the Financial Fair Play regulations but based on the agent’s comments, Rodriguez is certainly expected to stay put. Meanwhile, the Rossoneri are currently evaluating their options for the summer transfer window and based on reports, they are eyeing potential bargains.

One of those happens to be Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, who could be available on a free transfer next month but the Rossoneri are likely to face stiff competition from Serie A holders Juventus. The Bianconeri are deemed to have already offered a four-year contract to the Gunners graduate and the Englishman has yet to respond to the package on the table.
