Ricardo Rodriguez snubs Lokomotiv swap for Miranchuk

AC Milan left-back Ricardo Rodriguez has turned down a move to Lokomotiv Moscow, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

Rodriguez, 27, was proposed by Milan to the Russian club as part of a swap deal for attacker Aleksey Miranchuk.

However, the Swiss international told Milan he wants to be the one to choose his next club.

Rodriguez is out of contract in a year and has no intention of being a pawn in the Miranchuk deal.

The 27-year-old, who spent the season on loan at PSV Eindhoven, is in no hurry to decide his future.

HoffenheimHertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt are all keen on Rodriguez, who made a name for himself in Germany with Wolfsburg.

Milan will have to offer another player – possibly Diego Laxalt – or pay Lokomotiv’s asking price for Miranchuk.

Miranchuk, 24, who can play as a central attacking midfielder or right winger, has scored 16 goals in 32 matches this season.

Several Serie A clubs admire the Russian international, with Fiorentina also linked.
