For weeks and weeks, there have been talks of the defence and attack. However, AC Milan are also ready to make a signing for the midfield in January, as Stefano Pioli has requested a physical player for the defensive role.
As Gazzetta Dello Sport reports this morning (via MilanNews.it), Nemanja Matic is the first name on their wish list. The Man Utd midfielder is no longer part of the club’s plans, and the Red Devils are already prepared to lose him for free in January.
The Serbian midfielder is appreciated by the Rossoneri leadership, above all for his great experience and personality. Two factors that Boban and Maldini hold in high regard as the current Milan players are too inexperienced.
Furthermore, per the report, a transfer in January would also meet the player’s wish, as he wants more playing time. However, AC Milan will have to watch out for the competition of Atletico Madrid, who also are interested in Matic.
