CM: Milan not rushing to sign a defender – Romagnoli returns and optimism over Tomori

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will not rush their pursuit of a new centre-back because they are optimistic about the return of two current players, a report claims. reports that news of Alessio Romagnoli’s recovery from Covid-19 and subsequent return to the squad for training – which will occur tomorrow – has made head coach Stefano Pioli and his technical staff feel a bit more at ease about the current defensive crisis.

The club captain will be available to Milan for the crucial match against on Sunday 23 of January which is a big boost given Pierre Kalulu and Matteo Gabbia have been the ones holding the fort so far in 2022.

Regarding Fikayo Tomori, the club are optimistic to have him available in three weeks, and that – combined with Romagnoli’s return – is why there is no rush to go out and sign a new centre-back in January. In fact, a defender will only arrive if the player and the deal are right.

  1. Are they f*cking nuts at Milan!!
    Kalulu is good, but he’s not a real CB. Gabbia and Romagnoli are serie b worthy. Tomorri out (and with italian doctors you never know when he will be back), Kjaer out for the season, and you tell me we don’t need a decent CB…Gabbia and Kalulu played ok againt Venezia, wait until they have Inter or Juve as opponents, you will see that we absolutely need at least one CB ASAP.

    1. Yeah and who will come?

      You are nuts if you think any good defender will come while still fighting for top targets

      No team will let botman, diallo etc leave. Even Newcastle cannot snatch anyone with mountains of gold

      How can you be so clueless, bet you shout at things you do not understand
