AC Milan will only make an investment on a new right-back if they are able to sell Davide Calabria for the price they value him at, a report claims.
It has been reported by virtually every major outlet that Milan are in the market for a new right-sided defender due to the lack of consistency from Calabria and Andrea Conti last season.
According to MilanNews, Milan met with Conti’s agent – Mario Giuffredi – to reaffirm their trust in the 26-year-old despite a difficult season.
The purchase of a new full-back will only happen if Calabria leaves, as he would guarantee a full capital gain. However, Maldini and Massara will not accept offers of less than €13-14million due to the fact he is only 23 years old and has already played over 100 games for Milan.
To buy Denzel Dumfries, Serge Aurier or another target, Milan will not only have to get rid of Calabria, they will have to sell it and they will have to do it at their price. If this happens, a new full-back will arrive, financed almost entirely by the capital gain.
Reinforcing the right side would be important but there are also other priorities, such as completing the midfield and attack.
