After making six summer signings and having players back at his disposal, Marco Giampaolo’s starting XI is beginning to take shape, a report claims.
The Rossoneri brought a number of names in during the summer mercato: namely Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, Leo Duarte and lastly Ante Rebic on deadline day.
Giampaolo and the new Milan leadership are continuing to put their stamp on this squad by replacing older, more experienced players with exciting youth.
Now, we are beginning to see how the Diavolo will look under Giampaolo, and the return after the international break could see a new-look side.
According to Thursday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – Gianluigi Donnarumma will be in goal with Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez as full-backs.
In what might be considered a shock, Leo Duarte is set to partner Alessio Romagnoli in the centre of defense, while Kessié-Bennacer-Paquetà will be the midfield trio, the paper adds.
Finally, new signing Rebic will reportedly partner Suso in ‘supporting’ Piatek, which could mean either a 4-3-3 formation or a 4-3-2-1.
