Report: Berlusconi and Galliani’s Monza show interest in signing Milan defensive outcast

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan defender Mateo Musacchio could have an option to stay in Italy as Monza are reportedly interested in acquiring him.

Musacchio has fallen down the pecking order in recent months which has seen his playing time decrease, and the player’s agent gave a lengthy interview earlier in the year during which he expressed frustration at the Rossoneri’s treatment of his client.

Vito Angele told us that Sevilla and Valencia are keen on Musacchio, with Milan valuing the 29-year-old at around €6million, with some Spanish sides interested.

Back on 23 June he underwent surgery on his left ankle and has still not yet returned to action after an expected recovery time of four months, but it must also be noted that his contract expires in June 2021.

According to seriebnews.com, Adriano Galliani is considering the idea of a move for the Argentine defender to reinforce Monza’s rearguard on the assumption they are promoted to Serie A.

Galliani tried to bring Musacchio to Milan in the summer of 2016, but without success, and a year later the Mirabelli-Fassone duo were able to sign him for €15.

The Monza CEO is thinking of signing him on a free transfer in July 2021, but it will be necessary to see if Musacchio will leave Milan as early as January with a return to Spain still possible.
