CorSera: Milan still might not sign a defender this month despite Tomori blow

By Oliver Fisher -

The Milan management will not rush into making a signing for the defence because they are happy with what they have seen from their current options, it is claimed.

Ever since it was confirmed on Friday that Fikayo Tomori will be out for 30 days after surgery on a meniscal problem in his knee, speculation has been rife suggesting that the Rossoneri are ready to intensify their pursuit of a new centre-back with various targets linked.

However, il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) have a slightly different take on things, as they report that the performances from Pierre Kalulu and Matteo Gabbia have convinced Maldini and Massara not to change their market strategy even after Tomori’s injury.

The strategy therefore remains as follows: a reinforcement for the defence will arrive only if a fully convincing profile is identified, and Milan will not recruit a defender only to fill a box numerically, an idea that Pioli agrees with.

    If a CB doesn’t arrive then a RW or a CAM better

  2. K says:

    This ownership is pathetic. Just sell the team if you don’t want to spend. Milan cannot win the Scudetto without signing a good CB. They needed a CB even before Tomori Gorbachev hurt, now it is an absolute necessity. They have a great opportunity this season but this cheap ownership will ruin everything.

    1. FORZA Milan!!! says:

      Totally agree! It’s ridiculous🙄

    2. BBandika says:

      I agree,would rather Elliott sell the club,because it’s pathetic,we can’t get a decent player because we don’t have 20 million euros?

      Elliott out!

  3. Arber says:

    If a CB doesn’t arrive, Juve and Inter will f*ck us. Gabbia is shit, Alessio has serie b qualities, Kalulu is good but it’s not his position. We ABSOLUTELY need a decent defender. Kjaer can’t play 2 more years also….

    Management is happy with what they’ve seen???? They played Venezia. And they almost got beat at home by Genoa. Wait until they play Juve, Inter and Atalanta. This is why Milan won’t win anything. They are so foolish and cheap. They try to get away with spending as little as possible and hope they get lucky. Just like last season there luck is going to run out. You need quality and depth to make it through the whole season. If Management thinks they can beat the top teams with Gabbia, Kalulu and Romagnoli they are even more clueless than I thought. This is inexcusable if they don’t make any moves in January. Not to mention they still haven’t replaced Calhanoglu, they have no Attacking Midfielder . Milan doesn’t want to win trophies anymore, they just want to make a profit for their shareholders.

    1st AC Milan doesn’t need or want to have stupid fans like you. Milan has been bad for the past decade. Milan should buy Snow from St Etienne that be under 10 mil the kids is ready cause in 1 or 2 years he be like W Fonana or Boatman now 30 -60 millions.

    1. K says:

      Fans like you are pathetic. Content with Milan being mediocre. You want them to be a farm team? Buy cheap young players, develop them, then sell them off to big teams that actually want to win??? Ok. I’d rather see Milan be the big team that they once were. And you do have to spend to do that.

  6. MilanNYC says:

    What is the point of having depth if not to use them sore these situations? Every time a player is injured we have to panic buy a replacement? That’s not good business and it’s not good football. Kalulu and Gabbia are Milan players….let them play.

  7. Stam says:

    There is no one to buy in January.

    In the summer yes.

    No one sells good players in January, are you all 5?

    1. K says:

      Really? They got Tomori last January didn’t they? Fool.
