Castillejo heading back to Spain

Espanyol and Atletico Madrid are in the running for Milan winger Samu Castillejo, claims Spanish site Diario Sport.

He turns 25 later this month and cost €21.3m in his move from Villarreal in the summer of 2018.

Playing time has been hard to come by, especially this season, with only eight Serie A appearances, half of them off the bench.

According to the Spanish reports, Espanyol are the favourites to take Castillejo on loan until the end of the season.

Atletico Madrid are also interested and Milan hope to cash in on the flop, perhaps by including an option to buy at the end of the season.

He is under contract at San Siro until June 2023.
