Laxalt and Castillejo for sale

Milan are eager to sell several players they signed last year, including Diego Laxalt and Samu Castillejo, with Newcastle and Valencia interested.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, new directors Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are hard at work dismantling the side put together by Leonardo.

Laxalt cost €17m to sign from Genoa a year ago, but managed only 29 competitive appearances, most of them off the bench, contributing one assist.

Torino and Atalanta are interested in the Uruguay international full-back, while Newcastle United had already approached him in January.

It’s reported he will be allowed to leave if an offer worth €12m comes in.

Castillejo still needs to meet with directors to see if new Coach Marco Giampaolo wants to keep hold of the Spanish winger.

If not, then Valencia are prepared to swoop, as he already worked with Coach Marcelino at Villarreal.

Castillejo was purchased from Villarreal in August 2018 for €25m, but managed just four goals and four assists in 40 competitive games.
