GdS: Milan not pursuing any new defenders before mercato ends

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will not be pursuing any more defenders between now and the end of the transfer window, according to a report.

A lot of the recent mercato rumours surrounding Milan have been links with attackers, with an update on the pursuit of Angel Correa from La Gazzetta dello Sport arriving earlier on Tuesday.

Despite this, on Monday The Guardian claimed that Milan want Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.

Meanwhile lapaginamillonaria.com stated later in the day that Milan are in talks over River Plate’s Lucas Martinez Quarta.

French outlet Soccerlink then reported that Milan are ‘advancing rapidly’ in talks for Spurs full-back Serge Aurier and ‘could reach an agreement soon’ as the links with defenders continued.

Then, Sky Italia (as cited by Milannews.it) stated that Milan are back in to sign Merih Demiral from Juventus and were willing to offer €35m.

However, Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – states that the Rossoneri leaders believe they already have enough defenders.

There are currently three central defenders at Giampaolo’s disposal (plus Caldara, once back from injury, and Gabbia) which is deemed enough, the report claims.

The contract termination of Ivan Strinic and the impending departure of Diego Laxalt (as reported by the same outlet) means that the left-back log jam has been fixed.
