Most Tottenham fans will remember the Mateo Musacchio mini-saga. In the summer of 2014, during Mauricio Pochettino’s first transfer window at Spurs, the Argentine centre-back looked all set for a move to north London.
But the deal seemed to be taking forever, and in the end it fell through for a number of reasons. Tottenham signed Federico Fazio instead — not Daniel Levy’s finest moment.
According to talkSPORT, who cite ‘reports in Italy’, Musacchio has agreed personal terms with Serie A giants AC Milan.
The story claims Spurs still hold an interest in the 26-year-old, as do fierce rivals Arsenal. But Milan look set to beat the Premier League duo to the punch.
Musacchio has made over 200 league appearances for his current team Villarreal since joining the La Liga club in 2009. He has just 14 months left on his contract, meaning he will be available for free at the end of next season.
If the Milan agreement fails to materialise, I wouldn’t put it past Levy to have a look next summer.
