AC Milan have a number of names on their list of players who could come in to replace the injured Simon Kjaer, including two interesting young profiles.
Il Corriere della Sera are reporting that Kjaer will have to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee tomorrow to repair ligament damage and the involvement of the cruciate ligament and the damage to the collateral ligament means that the 32-year-old is looking at six months out, which means his season is over and Milan will now have to intervene on the market.
According to journalist Rudy Galetti, Milan have 28-year-old Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti on their list as a low-cost option given he could be allowed to leave the LaLiga giants in January. He is not in their plans having not played a single minute this season.
However, Galetti adds that the Rossoneri management could decide to bring forward their investment in a young profile like the 20-year-old Benoit Badiashile of AS Monaco or Wolfsburg’s 21-year-old centre-back Mexence Lacroix. However, both have a valuation of €30m.

It looks like we’ll need to rely on Romagnoli as well. He will need to step up his game and mentality. Our defence is very vulnerable now. Gabbia even more. Let’s see who we can get in January.
he’s the reason we lost both games.. we shud get rid of himmmmmmmmmmm
Devastating news to lose Kajer….need to buy in January now. Cannot rely on Romagnolli and Gabbia. Kalulu would be my choice to play CB when Calabria returns…
Romagnoli can get a job at McDonalds if Kalulu replaces him as CB.. January window must now come fast though after the Sassuolo horror
There’s that Torino defender I forgot his name, he dominated Giroud
I think it’s high time we look into our fitness coaches because the injuries are too much
Yeah I like Bremer too. He’s an established CB in the league, probably won’t cost a ton and his age profile fits with the rest of the defense. Signing Bremer would probably cost the same or less then keeping Romagnoli too.
LaCroix for sure. He’s athletic like Tomori and very fast.
All the while Milan was looking for a CB to complement Romagnoli not knowing it was Romagnoli who needed to leave. Like I have been saying we need to allow the captain leave for free at the end of the season and Pioli needs to trust Kalulu more. Having said that I hope the management signs a new CB rather than just discovering the whole potential CB in the market
Bremer playing drunk is still way better than Umtiti, lol.
