GdS: A Brahim-esque deal – Milan set sights on Real Madrid defender

By Ben Dixon -

In the upcoming mercato, AC Milan will look to add reinforcement to their first team, but they also must pursue the market for any openings for their future squads, and the Rossoneri have set their sights on a Real Madrid youngster.

The Achilles heel of Milan’s 2023/24 season was undoubtedly the defensive crisis, and this is known by the management. Therefore, a new central defender will be welcomed to the club during this summer, but it is vital to look to the future as well.

More than ever, the mercato is massively inflated, and prices are soaring, which means clubs must be smart with their business – for example, the Diavolo cannot spend €100 million on a striker, given they are in desperate need of at least four players.

Looking at the Diavolo’s shortlist, there is a conveyor belt of options that keep re-appearing. Jakub Kiwior and Lillian Brassier were linked heavily in the winter mercato and now are emerging once again as potential investments, and it is a similar story for Alessandro Buongiorno.

Regardless of who is elected to be the next central defender, though, Milan must also seek opportunities in the window. Gazzetta dello Sport (via Milan News) have reported that they may have found one in defence.

The player in question is Rafa Marin, the Real Madrid ‘revolution in defence’. Born in 2002, he spent last season on loan at Deportivo Alaves, but he could be sold in the upcoming window, and the Rossoneri have taken notice.

Furthermore, the report suggests that a deal could be structured similarly to those of Brahim Diaz and more recently, Alex Jimenez.

  1. This guy again? I fail to see how he is any better than thiaw or gabbia and isn’t even left footed. Thought fonseca was asking for a left footed CB

    1. Rüdiger is still at his prime so he’s not an option. Maybe when he’s 35 Milan could get interested in him and even then only if he accepted 2M€/y.

  2. That guy is mediocre, I can’t believe we didn’t went after Caliafiori he is young and very promising italian defender considering that we need italians in our squad. I watched him play for national team and he is very good

    1. The thing about Italians is that they’re Italian. That’s a big “NO!!!” for Moncada.

      But I do agree Milan should (or should have already) get him.

  3. Brahim-esque.
    You mean we get to train up Real player at a high level again. Whilst blocking opportunities of players we actually own.
    And then hand him back for nothing when he’s ready win a UCL final.
    Nice one!

    1. 😆😆😆😂😂😂😂😂😆😆😆😆😂😂😂😂😆😆😆😆😂😂😂 Very funny statement but it’s a fact.
