Villarreal drop Milan target Musacchio

Mateo Musacchio was left out of Villarreal’s pre-season friendly, fuelling reports of an imminent Milan move.

The defender was only in the stands for last night’s 1-0 win over Hospitalet.

Milan have had a series of meetings with Villarreal and Musacchio’s entourage in Ibiza.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, the Rossoneri are currently €5m below the asking price of €30m.

There are other options to consider too, amid reports Valencia called Milan to ask if they wanted Shkodran Mustafi instead.

Meanwhile, the Serie A side cannot make any big buys until Carlos Bacca has been sold.

The takeover by a Chinese conglomerate has still not been completed, so funds are limited.
