Milan put Musacchio on the market

Milan could sell Mateo Musacchio just six months after his €18m transfer from Villarreal, as he rarely plays.

The 27-year-old Argentina international was signed in July 2017 and was one of the first new arrivals under the Yonghong Li tenure.

However, the defender has managed only 18 competitive appearances this season and is often benched in favour of Alessio Romagnoli and Leonardo Bonucci.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Musacchio is on the market if the Rossoneri can get someone more suited to new Coach Gennaro Gattuso’s tactics.

The main target would be Genoa defender Armando Izzo, whose price-tag is approximately €15m.

Musacchio is not the only centre-back on the way out of Milan, as Gustavo Gomez and Gabriel Paletta have barely featured either, but have large salaries that are putting off potential buyers.
