CM: Milan rejected three clubs who wanted Simic – the plan for his future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan rejected offers in the summer from three clubs for Jan-Carlo Simic and the injury crisis at centre-back means they might well be glad they did, a report claims. report that Stefano Pioli will call Simic up from the Primavera for Saturday’s game against Udinese with Simon Kjaer, Pierre Kalulu and Marco Pellegrino injured, leaving just Fikayo Tomori and Malick Thiaw as healthy options.

Simic impressed last season with Ignazio Abate’s side as they reached the final four of the UEFA Youth League, and he went with the senior squad for the preseason tour of the USA, starting against Real Madrid.

After being signed from Stuttgart thanks to the work of Geoffrey Moncada and the scouting team, Simic convinced Abate’s technical staff to rely on him as a modern and versatile defender who still has huge room for growth at 18.

This trust now extends to Pioli too and is ready to be reconfirmed in the coming months, when the agents of the Serbian will meet with the Rossoneri management to discuss what the best path could be in the next phase of his career.

Frosinone, Club Brugge and Nottingham Forest made initial contacts with his entourage to explore the possibilities of a loan deal but these were rejected, and now we must see what the future holds.

  1. The plan for the future is to play our CBs until they get tired and injured (looking at you Tomori) and then bring him on, fail miserably and never get to play again in future matches

    1. If Tomori gets injured, it would be the end of our top 4 race, I am not even exaggerating here. He must stay fit for us to still stay competitive.

  2. Why the heck he did not call at least 2 CB’s for bench vs napoli,is he that scared to even call primavera players for bench,he went on napoli with only pellegrino as a bench cb

  3. We have young players. And than their substitutes are youngers.

    Bottom line is that Ac have bunch of injured players no matter how young they are.

  4. Pioli: I have huge faith in Simic, so I will give him time to get familiar with my system.
    See you on the bench for the next 4, 5 months, kiddo.

  5. Honestly if I was the management, I would include him permanently in the first team, then release, if Coubis comes back ok, then include him also

      1. He made some disaster class performances a couple times last year in the Primavera and now he’s no longer “that guy” apparently 🤷‍♂️
