MN: Sizeable investment or Tomori-style deal – Milan weighing up two paths in CB pursuit

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are considering two different solutions in their pursuit of a new centre-back to fill the gap left by Simon Kjaer’s season-ending injury, it is claimed.

According to MilanNews, directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working to identify the right profile in view of the January market, a window that is always difficult in terms of identifying the perfect target and persuading their club to part with them.

Maldini and Massara could bring forward the permanent signing of a strong defender in January, immediately investing the budget foreseen for the summer, or they could once again go with a loan with option to buy deal like they did with Fikayo Tomori in January of this year.

One thing is certain: Pioli will have a reinforcement for the rearguard at the beginning of 2022 and it will not be a simple stopgap or an option that comes with any kind of risk, but rather a player that offers guarantees for the present and the future.

  1. In the summer of 2022:
    Zlatan is 41
    Giroud is 36
    Colombo is 21 and its his start in serie a.
    CBs: now we have 5. January arrival, Kjaer, Tomori, Romagnoli. Gabbia wastes his potential on the bench.

    The budget is 0. All used up to buy a CB.

    All this to play 44 games, because without new striker we end up at CL bottom again.

    1. Romagnoli contract will not be renewed if Milan buy another CB. Win the league and Milan will have a decent budget for the summer plus Adli and Columbia return, Kamara joins on a free. Milan finally sign a attacking midfielder.

    2. Kjaer will be 33 with a career-ending injury in terms of magnitude. He won’t be the same again, nor will he be able to play all the games.
      Romagnoli is out of contract in 6 months, while Gabbia is very slow, very afraid with the ball on his feet and not talented enough (simple as that).

  2. isnt 7 goals in 10 games good with ibra.? and hes not getting injured too. And he has done this with the B class attacking midfielder with the exception of leao but still rebic is huge difference and sal, brahim, others are not good. So i think we should look for CAM, cm rather than crying for striker. Well ur point is right but i dun feel like ibra is gonna get injured bcz he clearly mentioned in interview i need to listen to my body and he is going quite. I would support u if he gets injured.
