Milan will sanction a loan deal with Monza for Davide Bartesaghi once they manage to get a new defender through the door in January, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri do not want to allow any defenders to leave the club this month until they have added at least one new central defender to the squad.
Even though Bartesaghi is a full-back, Theo Hernandez has been having to fill in as a centre-back which means that they need players to take up his normal left-back role in that situation.
What is clear is that without more injuries in defence and the emergence of Alex Jimenez as an option on both flanks, there is less scope for Bartesaghi to get minutes during the rest of the season.
That is why Monza have shown an interest in giving him somewhere to play for six months, like they have done with Daniel Maldini who joined them on loan earlier today.
Milan are trying to sign at least one central defender but they missed out on Radu Dragusin as he has chosen to sign for Tottenham in the Premier League. When a new defender is signed, Bartesaghi may depart on loan.
