Diego Laxalt set for AC Milan exit after Celtic loan spell

Diego Laxalt looks set to be moved on from AC Milan this summer after failing to impress on-loan at Celtic. The Uruguayan International arrived with much anticipation to help Celtic continue their domestic dominance; however, he was underwhelming to say the least and the club rejected the opportunity to sign him on a cut-price deal.

Now, reports from our friends at Sempre Milan (via Tuttosport) claim that Milan are eyeing two new fullbacks with Laxalt headed for the San Siro exit door. It is unclear whether the player will be sold or loaned out again, as he still has a contract until 2022, you cannot rule out Il Rossoneri releasing him prematurely.

The Uruguayan joined on deadline day from Celtic’s Europa League Group H rivals AC Milan and immediately started the 2-0 home defeat to Rangers. His performances to begin with added a much needed pace and steel on the left hand side, something that has been missing since Kieran Tierney left for Arsenal. However, he was criticised for poor performances since November as Greg Taylor won his place in the side again. He came back into the side under John Kennedy but was hopeless in the defeat against Rangers.
