CM: Milan duo at risk as management look to address key issue – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face a dilemma regarding their right-back position heading into the summer after Davide Calabria and Andrea Conti have failed to convince.

As notes, Milan have begun contacts with agent Mino Raiola over PSV Eindhoven defender Denzel Dumfries, but other profiles such as Youcef Atal of OGC Nice are being monitored.

If a new right-back were to arrive, one of Conti or Calabria would have to leave, which is why solutions and possibilities for the future are being evaluated.

The former Atalanta wing-back currently has a residual value of €12.5million on the balance sheet which is why it would be necessary to sell him for an amount on or above that so as not to record a loss. That is an unlikely scenario given we are heading towards a market based on swap deals, low-cost ideas and emphasis in young players.

At present, it is difficult to imagine a club that is willing to put €15-20million on the plate for the 26-year-old, especially given how inconsistent he has been this season.

For Calabria it is a different discussion. Under Stefano Pioli he has made just five appearances as a starter, leading his agent to offer him to Sevilla, but it is Bologna and Fiorentina who are the most interested.
