MN: Probable Milan XI to face Lumezzane – trio of new signings in a 4-3-3

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will take part in their first friendly of the summer tomorrow when they welcome Lumezzane for a game at Milanello.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, three of the new signings are likely to start the game from the first minute in Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Luka Romero and Christian Pulisic.

There are some notable absentees such as Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez, Pierre Kalulu, Alexis Saelemaekers and Rafael Leao, all of whom have only just returned to training today following an extended vacation due to international duty.

The other players that are not expected to play include Tijjani Reijnders who was only made official today, as well as Yacine Adli, Junior Messias, Fode Ballo-Toure, Ante Rebic and Divock Origi, all of whom are not deemed a part of the club’s plans and can leave.

Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Sportiello; Calabria, Gabbia, Tomori, Florenzi; Loftus-Cheek, Krunic, Pobega; Romero, Colombo, Pulisic.

  1. 433 with Krunic playing in the regista role.
    Unless Milan signs a defensive midfielder, Krunic will play there until Bennacer comes back. Musah is going to back up RLC if signed

      1. Unless another midfielder comes in besides Musah, Krunic definitely starting.
        None of RLC, Reijnders or Musah can play there, and there is no other midfielder in the squad that can play that role

        1. Absolutely not. Just because Tonali left doesn’t mean Krunic is an automatic starter. Musah is definitely going to be starting over him. Our midfield is now different.

    1. Krunic is not a regista. You do not “techinically” need a true 6 in a midfield 3. Further, with the athelticism of our back 4 ( assuming Singo, not Calabria) along with the high press Pioli plays having a true 6 might not be a pressing for Milan as other clubs.

    2. If they sign Musah. Reijnders will play CDM with RLC to the left and Musah to the right. Krunic will be a backup which is where he should be.

  2. Anyone know if the game will be broadcast anywhere? Youtube for example?

    And same question but regarding the games on the american tour? Anyone know about them?

  3. No pressure Colombo but you only have to score hat tricks in every preseason game and Milan might think about not loaning you out for the rest of your career.

    And if you get to stay you can be our 5th choice striker…..

    Bring on the end to the transfer madness and let’s get back to the sport of football.

  4. Good luck Florenzi, Gabbia, Pobega and Colombo, really hope you all shine so we can keep an Italian core to the team, we are not Inter
