‘Milan wanted Castillejo the most’

Samu Castillejo’s agent has thanked Milan for ‘going out of their way’ to sign the winger, who has been ‘really impressed by the Rossoneri’.

Castillejo joined Milan over the summer in a swap deal with Carlos Bacca, and the former Villarreal ace seems to be loving life at San Siro.

“Samu’s very happy with how his first period at Milan is going,” the representative told

“He’s been really impressed by what the Rossoneri are about. I have to say that the lad was fantastically received by the Coach, club and his teammates.

“Of course when all these components are so strong and important, the rest comes more easily.

“He’s been friends with [Mateo] Musacchio from their time together at Villarreal, but he also knew Suso and several others.

“He’s working to become a starter, that’s his objective, but it’s the Coach who decides. He’s a gifted winger with great pace and technique.

“He knows how to take his man on, but above all he’s a lad who isn’t afraid of anything. He knows how to take his responsibilities on and off the field.

 “I can confirm that there were several clubs after him, but Milan had been following him for some time and went out of their way to sign him.”
