Celta Vigo €11m bid for Castillejo

Samu Castillejo is reportedly considering an offer worth €11m to join Celta Vigo, less than half what Milan paid a year ago.

According to Radio Galega, the 24-year-old Spaniard could be on his way back to La Liga after just 12 months in Serie A.

The winger has struggled to fit into new Coach Marco Giampaolo’s 4-3-1-2 formation and was used as a makeshift striker during pre-season friendlies.

He was purchased from Villarreal only a year ago for €25m, but contributed four goals and four assists in 40 competitive games.

If the €11m offer were to be accepted, that would mean Milan selling Castillejo for under half the sum they paid only 12 months ago.
