Hoping to replicate the 2021/22 season, Stefano Pioli has a few ideas to switch things up and surprise the opponents. In fact, some of the players Milan are chasing on the market could help him switch formations.
In today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport, as you can see in the photos below, two formations are analysed for Milan’s upcoming season. Based on the potential signings, a 4-3-3 or three men at the back could be used.
Renato Sanches, Yacine Adli and Tommaso Pobega, for example, would be more comfortable in a three-man midfield and that’s why the 4-3-3 is an option. In that case, Charles De Ketelaere could be deployed mainly on the right.
Given Simon Kjaer’s return, a three-man backline cannot be ruled out either. The Dane is not as fast as his defensive partners and he could thus play in the middle, with Pierre Kalulu and Fikayo Tomori on either side of him.
