Mattia Caldara returned from an 18-month loan at Atalanta last month but is seemingly just passing by, as the Rossoneri are looking to offload the centre-back in the next few days.
As we reported earlier today, citing Radio Rossonera, the management of Venezia was at Casa Milan in the afternoon to discuss the 27-year-old with Maldini and Massara.
And according to Daniele Longo from Calciomercato.com, the meeting was quite fruitful and the Venice-based club has officially asked to sign Caldara on loan.
This solution is also reportedly appreciated by the player himself, as he is looking to join a team that can guarantee him a starting position.
However, it must be noted that the centre-back earns 2 million euros net per season, a figure beyond the reach of the newly-promoted club. Thus, a contribution from Milan will likely be necessary for the deal to materialize.
In the meantime, the track leading to Fiorentina is less likely and the club could reportedly make an attempt only in the case that one between Milenkovic and Pezzella leaves the club.
