CM: Christensen disappointment, new No.1 target and domestic options – latest on Milan’s CB pursuit

By Oliver Fisher -

As we get closer to the January transfer window, more updates are arriving regarding AC Milan’s search for a new central defender following Simon Kjaer’s season-ending injury.

According to, there does not seem to be an opening for Milan to land Andreas Christensen as Chelsea are well underway with his renewal. Directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara did have contacts with the Danish defender’s agent, but they are focusing on other options because they believe in the end he will renew.

The next preferred target is Sven Botman of Lille, and in Maldini and Massara have had an exploratory talk with his agent with the player in principle happy to join Milan. Now the management will have to overcome two obstacles: the competition from Premier League sides and the €30m asking price.

In terms of other profiles, Malang Sarr of Chelsea and Luiz Felipe of Lazio have been offered to Milan but both profiles are not of interest. Nikola Milenkovic remains an option while talks are expected between Maldini and Torino director Vagnati about Bremer, who could be sold in January.

  1. Lol 30m? Haahah why.. buying a pricey defender will NOT help us win Serie A. We need a top AM. Then we need some depth at striker and CB but not top players there. And hopefully in summer a top RW. When Milan is bad it’s rarely because we’ve been bad in defense and great in attack… when we’re bad its always because we’re toothless. Same thing last year… please don’t repeat and not enforce the attack. It is still the problem.

    1. We do actually need a center back this time.
      We tried mandzukic last time but he didn’t work, this tie. Faivre or Kamara is needed
