Didac Vila’s problems continue, as after a failed transfer the Milan defender is out for eight weeks following surgery.
The Spaniard had been due to make the move to Valencia this summer when he failed a medical due to a groin problem.
He returned to Milanello and today it was announced he will be out of action for eight weeks – if there are no complications – after surgery for athletic pubalgia.
Didac Vila spent last season on loan at Espanyol, but with this setback it will be difficult for the Rossoneri to get him off their books.
