In the summer, there is expected to be a lot of movement at AC Milan, transfer-wise. As a result of this, the future of three Rossoneri defenders is at risk, leaving just a few certainties in the back-four.
According to today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Milanlive.it), the three players are Mateo Musacchio, Leo Duarte and Simon Kjaer. The former, however, is the closest to the exit as he no longer fits the Rossoneri’s project.
The Argentine’s contract will expire in 2021, which means Milan will either have to renew his contract or sell him this summer. As mentioned, both parties seem set on the latter option. Then again, he isn’t the only one at risk.
Kjaer has a buy-out clause of just €2.5m, but in spite of this, there is no certainty with regards to Milan’s stance. Age-wise, he doesn’t fit the project but his experience and the low cost keeps him in the running.
Having failed to impress, in addition to suffering a serious injury, it remains to be seen of Duarte will be in the squad next season. On the other hand, he was always going to be a backup.
