AC Milan interested in loaning PSG goalkeeper in January
The goalposts of PSG are well secured under the gloves of Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas. The odd man out, Spaniard Sergio Rico, might well be on his way out of Paris with AC Milan interested in his services according to multiple reports emerging Monday.
Reputed football journalist and insider Gianluca Di Marzio published a tweet linked to a story describing the interest of Italian champions AC Milan in PSG's third goalkeeper, Sergio Rico.
Rico, according to different reports, might have already opened talks with Milan in order to set up a loan deal with the Italian behemoths for the remainder of the season.
AC Milan is currently navigating a period of downtime for GK1 Mike Maignan while he nurtures a calf injury, seemingly not having the Italy Serie A side at ease with the possibility of having to play GK2 Ciprian Tatarusanu for the second half of the season.
Having signed Divock Origi earlier this year, there seems to be a nice relationship between Milan and Rico's player agency You First. That is expected to make things easier for both sides to reach a deal between them as soon as they can iron out the details.
PSG goalkeeper Sergio Rico might already have agreed to terms with AC Milan on a six-month loan
Milan has already moved in the January transfer window acquiring another goalkeeper in Colombian Devis Vasquez. Vasquez, 24 years old, is expected to enter the rotation with the GK3 role in the pecking order.
Rico joined PSG in the summer of 2019 after his Premier League side Fulham got relegated the season before. He never played more than 10 games in a single season in the Ligue 1, spending the 2021-22 campaign away on loan at Mallorca of Spain's La Liga.
Rico turned 29 years old on Sep. 2022 and is still young for a player in his position. Rico played for the last time on May 7th when he lost a game with Mallorca against Granada by a final score of 6-2. Rico's deal with PSG is set to expire in June 2024.
