At AC Milan since:2018
Diego Sebastián Laxalt Suárez was born in Montevideo, in the south of Uruguay. He began his career in the youth sector of Defensor Sporting, a team from Montevideo that plays in Uruguay's top division. He made his first-team debut in a 4-0 derby victory against Montevideo Wanderers. After a convincing season with Los Violetas, he was signed by Inter, and immediately loaned first to Bologna and then to Empoli.
His incursions on the flank attracted the attention of Genoa, a team that consecrated him before his arrival, in the summer of 2018, at AC Milan. Football is not the only aspect in his life, but also family, vintage cars, playing the piano and those braids that identify him from the beginning of his career.
