After the negative test against Novara, Leo Duarte also struggled against Monza last night. The signing of a new centre-back is now a must for Milan, especially if you consider that they will compete in three competitions.
As things stand, Alessio Romagnoli will pair up with Simon Kjaer in the centre of the defence. The only alternatives are Mateo Musacchio, Matteo Gabbia and Leo Duarte. The former is currently injured and could even be sold if an offer arrives.
According to Milanlive.it, Milan could turn to Nacho Fernandez to solve their dilemma. The Spaniard is expected to leave Real Madrid and would cost around €15m. He’s very experienced and also has a lot of flexibility.
In addition to Nacho, the Rossoneri are also monitoring the situation of Wesley Fofana. The Saint-Etienne defender is young and would certainly fit the project, but it remains to be seen who Milan will try to sign.
