Milan could start the new season with the same right-backs, despite several rumours suggesting that a change will be made on that side of the defence. During the press conference yesterday, this was hinted.
“He is a product in our youth sector. Often the value of these players is downplayed. In recent years he has done well and we do not consider him on the market,” sporting director Ricky Massara said about Davide Calabria (via MilanNews.it).
As reported by Calciomercato.com, the situation has seemingly changed for the Italian defender after he was expected to leave the club. However, a transfer remains a credible option but it won’t take place on a loan.
The Rossoneri will only say goodbye to Calabria if €12-15m is offered, and the clubs interested have certainly been warned by Massara’s comments. Should the right offer fail to arrive, then Calabria will remain at Stefano Pioli’s disposal.
Meanwhile, the pursuit of Serge Aurier has been dropped as Tottenham continue to ask for €20m. The hypothesis of Emerson and Denzel Dumfries, though, remain but can only be of interest if one right-back leaves Milan.
