Official: Milan sign Castillejo

Milan have officially signed winger Samu Castillejo from Villarreal, with Carlos Bacca going back in the opposite direction.

However, a statement on Milan’s official website confirms the pair have exchanged clubs permanently as opposed to loans with obligations to buy.

Castillejo is a left-footed right winger, who spent three seasons with Villarreal, scoring 11 goals and assisting 15 in 127 appearances.

The Rossoneri have also announced that the 23-year-old will be the final player to turf up at San Siro this summer and will be unveiled on Friday afternoon alongside Diego Laxalt and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Bacca, meanwhile, returns to Villarreal after netting 18 times for them during a loan spell in 2017-18.

The statement concludes with Gianluca Lapadula, as expected, signing for Genoa on a permanent basis.
