TMW: Early loan termination and Fiorentina star among Milan’s options to cover for Kjaer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are beginning to weigh up their options to reinforce the centre-back department ahead of the January window, according to a report.

On their official website, the club announced that Kjaer underwent an arthroscopy on his left knee for the reconstruction of his anterior cruciate ligament and the re-insertion of his medial collateral ligament. The operation was carried out at the La Madonnina Clinic and was successful, but he will be out for at least six months as a result so cover on the market could be sought.

According to TMW journalist Nicolò Ceccarini, Maldini and Massara are already moving to identify cover for Kjaer. The simplest operation would be to bring back Mattia Caldara, who is currently on loan at Venezia.

The more difficult path is to make a permanent signing, and Nikola Milenkovic is the chosen profile but Fiorentina have no intention of selling him. Only in the face of a very high offer could they be tempted to change their stance.

    Caldara can’t make the cover, give him three training sections and he’d be injured again. It’s a dejà vu

      that’s put it mildly

    2. Moon says:

      I was saying the same.

  2. Milanello says:

    Pellegri has the similiarities with Caldara, injury prone

  3. Vero Rossonero says:

    I read on this very site that Milenkovic had a 15m release clause. Isn’t the point of those that you can’t refuse the offer if it meets the terms? So Fiorentina can’t say no. So either there is no clause or it’s much higher than previously reported.

    1. Martin Bernhard says:

      could be that its because it only becomes active come july as his contract was extended with one year in august 2021.

    Leave the guy be, his career is already ruined. There is no point for him returning to the bench.

  5. Alita says:

    I was saying the same. but this is not right.
