The Milan derby against Inter may come too soon for Pierre Kalulu who suffered an injury whilst on international duty with the French national team, a report claims.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Pianeta Milan), the Milan derby may see Simon Kjaer take a starting place in the defence rather than Kalulu.
The Rossoneri already know that they will be without Fikayo Tomori after he was shown a red card against AS Roma before the international break.
Kalulu’s physical issues mean that it is likely to be an unusual centre-back duo of Kjaer and Malick Thiaw up against the Nerazzurri, who have also got a 100% record so far in Serie A this season.
Kalulu has not been 100% ruled out just yet but it seems to be a very big ask for the Frenchman to come back from his muscle problem for such a big game.
