Pierre Kalulu has sustained a muscle injury and his presence against Inter is now seriously at risk. The Frenchman will undergo further tests soon but AC Milan are hoping to recover him for the derby, a report claims.
The youngster was the favourite to replace Fikayo Tomori alongside Malick Thiaw in the derby, given the Englishman’s suspension, but the muscle injury has made things difficult. He could now miss out on the game altogether.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, Milan are still hoping to recover Kalulu in time for the derby and thus haven’t given up hope yet. Should he fail to make it, then Simon Kjaer will be the starting centre-back on Saturday.
Olivier Giroud is also recovering from a minor injury but it seems he will be available for the big game. He stopped just in time and the stress ruled out an injury, with just some ankle pain to get rid of.
