MN: Secret name likely as Maldini and Massara resume centre-back pursuit

By Isak Möller -

The centre-back search continues for AC Milan and it seems the fans will have to wait a little longer for the signing. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are more focused on getting the signing right than rushing it.

Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori’s injuries have made life very difficult for Stefano Pioli, there is no doubt about it, also because Alessio Romagnoli has Covid. However, finding a replacement isn’t always easy.

As highlighted by MilanNews, the favourites have always been Bremer of Torino and Sven Botman of Lille. It seems that neither of these can leave in January and thus Milan will have to come back in the summer.

Some alternatives have been mentioned for this month, such as Eric Bailly, but none of them seem to fit the bill completely. The feeling is, as the report continues, that Maldini and Massara has a secret name on their list that hasn’t been reported by the media yet.

After all, the duo likes to work in secret and that strategy has paid off thus far for the Rossoneri.
