AC Milan’s defensive department is stretched at the moment due to the fact Mateo Musacchio and Alessio Romagnoli are still recovering from injury.
Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia formed the pairing for last night’s 2-0 win over Shamrock Rovers, but Leo Duarte was the only player in reserve in that position.
A lot of media speculation suggests that Milan are in the market for a new centre-back to bolster that particular department, but in the mean time Pioli is hoping to welcome back his captain and some much needed depth as soon as possible.
According to the latest from MilanNews, Romagnoli has started training on the pitch, which is a good sign as it means that he is gearing up towards resuming training with the group.
As for the Argentine, his rehabilitation is progressing well and individual field work is planned for the former Villarreal shortly, so the duo could both be back available sooner rather than later.
