AC Milan have a third option in mind in the event they do not manage to sign either of their main centre-back targets, a report claims.
According to what Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) are reporting this morning, Milan could decide to take a different course in their pursuit of a new defender if they do not sell Sven Botman from Lille or Gleison Bremer from Torino.
The management could instead decide to invest the money set aside for a new centre-back to reinforce other departments, and thus they would go for a lower-cost defender. A new name has sprung up in the last few days in Pablo Mari, the Arsenal defender who played on loan for Udinese for the second half of last season.
Mari – formerly of Manchester City – has just 14 games under his belt for the Gunners having joined on an initial loan deal from Flamengo that was turned into a permanent deal.
