MN: Kjaer a low-cost opportunity that Milan can’t turn down – the situation

By Isak Möller -

Simon Kjaer is one of the AC Milan players with an uncertain future, having joined the club in January. The Danish defender was signed from Sevilla on a six-month loan with an option to buy at €2.5m.

Due to the injury struggled of Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte, Kjaer immediately cemented a spot in the starting eleven, climbing the pecking order. In fact, even after Musacchio returned, Stefano Pioli continued to use the Danish international.

In addition to performing well, he added experience, height and physicality to the Rossoneri’s backline. With him on the pitch – between Serie A and Coppa Italia – Milan have registered five wins, one draw and one defeat, as highlight.

On February 17th, now almost two months ago, he injured himself in the win against Torino and subsequently missed the games against Fiorentina and Genoa. The Rossoneri only managed a draw and a defeat in those two games.

However, even though he has performed well, his future is far from certain especially with the ongoing Coronavirus emergency. Then again, it will be hard for Milan to find another player with his qualities for just €2.5m.

The youth project is interesting, but a team that aims high also needs experienced players. With the now certain farewell of Lucas Biglia and Jack Bonaventura, and potentially also Zlatan Ibrahimovic, parting ways with Kjaer could be harmful.
