According to Torino of Serie A side, AC Milan is all set to sign Ricardo Rodriguez. This Swiss international player is in Turin for his medical and he has divulged some details about the choices that he had to make prior to choosing the club.
His time at Milan hasn’t been that over underwhelming. Rodriguez hasn’t been able to showcase his form from Wolfsburg. Thereafter, he was sent over to PSV Eindhoven on loan in the month of the result. AC Milan had been looking to let the Swiss international go and Torino had been keen. Thus, the deal had been pretty straightforward. Nevertheless, Ricardo Rodriguez could have moved to London, easily for playing the Premier League.
According to reports, West Ham United had been interested in signing the former defender from Wolfsburg. Thus, they made him an offer to lure him to play in the London Stadium.
It has been reported that the offer made by Hammer was much more than that of Torino. However, Ricardo Rodriguez rejected this offer in the hope to reunite with Marco Giampaolo, his former boss. The reports also claim that Giampaolo and Torino’s project is more ambitious than West Ham that helped him to make up his mind. But this is really a shame since both sides are almost on the same boat.
Last season, both West Ham and Torino finished in the 16th position on the table. This is only 5 points above the team that was placed in the 18th position. If West Ham is not able to convince a player to come to play for them over a squad that had a similar campaign to there, they are most likely to grapple in the next term. This is something that is worrying about the supporters of West Ham.
