Mediaset: Real Madrid defender reappears as a potential option for Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

The name of Nacho Fernandez has once again reappeared as a potential defensive reinforcement for AC Milan, a report claims.

Milan are in desperate need of a new centre-back to reinforce a department which is currently thin on depth due to the injuries of Alessio Romangoli and Mateo Musacchio plus the inexperience of Matteo Gabbia and Leo Duarte.

Fiorentina duo Nikola Milenkovic and German Pezzella continue to be linked, with Saint-Etienne’s Wesley Fofana and Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer are two names that refuse to go away.

According to Claudio Raimondi’s latest update for the broadcast SportMediaset (via MilanNews), there are linked with Schalke’s Matija Nastasic but there in fact other targets.

The axis between Real Madrid and Milan could come into play again, as Paolo Maldini is considering a move to sign 30-year-old Nacho on loan.

Calciomercato.it also recently reported that Nacho is a potential option for the Rossoneri, as well as Roma.
