Yunus Musah is expected to arrive in Italy next week to complete his move to AC Milan. He’s a good reinforcement for the midfield but the Rossoneri fans have expressed their doubts regarding his role.
Having brought in Tijjani Reijnders and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Milan have significantly improved the situation in the midfield but a defensive player is still missing. Musah has sparked a debate in that sense, as many Rossoneri fans believe he’s not suitable for the No.6 role.
Furthermore, there have been conflicting reports regarding Milan’s stance on the matter. Initially, it was suggested that he would be an alternative for the mezz’ala role, alternating with the aforementioned signings, but recent reports suggest he is indeed a signing for the No.6 role.
At Valencia, Musah played as a central midfielder and even a right-winger this past season, but he only played one game in a defensive role. In other words, it will be very interesting to see if Milan intend to use him in the No.6 role.
There might be an additional midfielder on the way to the club, but for now the management has been posed with an important question: Is a midfield of Loftus-Cheek, Musah and Reijnders balanced enough?
