MN: Milan could sign two centre-backs this summer with Spurs and PSG duo targeted

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in the market for a new centre-back and it cannot be excluded that they actually sign two players for that position, a report claims.

According to MilanNews, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have now turned to the other positions that must be addressed after sealing a deal for Charles De Ketelaere of Club Brugge, and one of the positions where they must intervene is the role of central defender.

Japhet Tanganga of Tottenham and Abdou Diallo of PSG are serious and concrete targets for Milan, and the report even mentions how it cannot be excluded that both could arrive if the formulas were to work out.

The plan at the moment though is just to get one of them in for the time being which would thus push through Matteo Gabbia’s move to Sampdoria on loan. Samp have guaranteed Milan that Gabbia will have an important role under Marco Giampaolo, which seems to have convinced them.

    1. No, it is the other way around. Watching the growth of Tomori and Kalulu, many center-backs are obsessed with Maldini so they ask their agent to contact Maldini, the media notice the contact but reported it as interest from Maldini instead.

      1. Just few months ago Maldini told Ambrosini he do not plan to spend money on CB unless the CB is top class player. I don’t think the CB mentioned so far qualify as top class.

  1. If Gabbia goes (looks like certain) we need at least one more CB. Kjaer is coming back from a serious injury, so in the reality we have 2.5 CBs…

    1. Those thinking Gabbia might leave do not understand UCL squad rule and fail to notice that he is one of the only three club-homegrown in the first team. He cannot be replaced by new signings.

  2. You guys are kinda getting it wrong. Do u know we have kjaer,tomori & kalulu and 2 out of this 3 players might go to the world & might get exhausted or God forbid get injured or something. So we definitely need at least 2 more defenders because we will been involved in 3 major tournament and the next 3 months will be jammed packed with games non stop. So we need a large squad that we can be rotating especially in the defense department.

    1. One national team doesn not have big chance to go deep in the tournament.
      One is still not in the starting line-up.
      One is not even in the senior team.

      They will get plenty of rest.
