Sandro Tonali has been heavily linked with Milan in recent days. However, many fans have wondered what his role will be in the squad, seeing as the Rossoneri already have Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie for the midfield tandem.
Today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Milanlive.it) took stock of the situation, providing a few options Stefano Pioli could go with. Tonali, as we know, is a rather complete midfield who can play both as a regista and mezz’ala.
Initially, the 20-year-old could be the alternative for Bennacer in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 formation, the quality footballer ready to alternate with the Algerian. However, Milan could also decide to focus on a midfield of talent and youth.
In that case, they could play Tonali alongside Bennacer and thus send Kessie to the bench. The manager could also implemented other tactical solutions, such as relaunching the 4-3-3 formation with the Brescia star as the regista.
