Watford

Deulofeu admits love for Milan

26th February 2019, 11:01 by Neil Foster

Watford star Gerard Deulofeu has refused to rule out a return to the San Siro in the future after admitting he loved playing for Milan.

The 24-year-old is now on the books at Vicarage Road, having penned an initial six-month loan deal in January 2018, and has bagged six goals from 20 appearances in all competitions for the Hornets this season.

The Spain international spent six months on loan with Milan during the second half of the 2016-17 campaign and was linked with a return to the Serie A outfit in the recent transfer window.

Nothing came of it but the talented forward, who bagged a hat-trick last time out against Cardiff, confessed that playing for the Italians again is certainly not out of the question.

"It’s nice that clubs are interested and Milan, as I say, I have a special appreciation. I do not close the door to a return in the future," he told Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

"My time at Milan was the happiest. I felt very loved there, I enjoyed football a lot. From the first moment they told me what they wanted from me, they trusted my game and I helped the club."
