Positive news has arrived regarding the recovery of AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura ahead of the new season.
Remarkably, 252 days have now passed since Jack played his last game for the Rossoneri due to knee inflammation, a problem which eventually resulted in him undergoing an operation to repair the joint cartilage.
MilanNews.it now provide an update on his condition, stating that the former Atalanta man has not yet fully recovered but the verdict is positive after the first tests back at Milanello.
Indeed, the player should be ready for the start of the season, and there is now a wait to see whether he will be available for some of the preseason friendlies.
The report goes on to state that Milan will probably buy a new left-sided central midfielder (possibly Jordan Veretout) who, theoretically, should start over Bonaventura.
The contractual situation of Bonaventura though needs sorting too, as his current deal expires in June 2020, and the strategy of Elliott Management to focus on youth players could mean not all is certain for the 29-year-old after all.
