Paletta to return to Milan after failed Atalanta bid

By Oliver Fisher -

Having spent last season on loan at Atalanta, 30-year-old defender Gabriel Paletta will return to AC Milan.

The nerazzurri had tried to keep the Argentine-born Italian player, but this time the former Parma man will remain at San Siro, where he will have a chance to play.

This is due to the impending departures of defensive pair Alex and Philippe Mexes, plus the contract renewal of Cristian Zapata being unsure.

In truth, Paletta was a solid CB for Milan in his time during the 2014/15 season, and could be a complimentary partner to young prodigy Alessio Romagnoli.
