MN: Form struggles and Berardi temptation – Saelemaekers and Messias battle for Milan future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s right wing has not been performing as well as the left side for some time now, and two players are playing for their future.

MilanNews writes how Alexis Saelemaekers is the only Milan player to have played in all 38 games across all competitions so far this season while Junior Messias has started over the Belgian in 7 of the last 9 matches.

There are contrasting problems with the duo: Saelemaekers struggles to find the composure for the end product that his dynamic runs often deserve, while Messias does not offer the same balance and his five goals for the season are what rescues him.

The management are looking for a right winger for this reason and the favourite target is Domenico Berardi of Sassuolo. The most difficult obstacle to overcome is the €35m asking price that the Neroverdi have set, but Paolo Maldini and his collaborators are beginning to think about the future.

At the moment, it seems that there is only room for one of either Saelemaekers or Messias in the Milan of the future, so they are battling for a spot in the team and in the squad.

  1. I think Saelemaekers will be fantastic in a year or two. Has all the attributes to be great, just needs to work on his decision making which will come with experience
