Alessio Romagnoli has been out for some time with knee problems and last week there were some rumours circulating about the need of surgery for the 22-year-old central defender. However, that is most likely not the case.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Romagnoli has chosen a conservative therapy in order to heal his left knee injury. The player is expected back on the field shortly and should be ready for Milan’s Serie A season opener against Crotone.
Romagnoli joined Milan from Roma in the summer of 2015 and has since then collected 69 appearances for the Rossoneri. He has also become a part of Gian Piero Ventura’s Italy side this season.
Romagnoli’s return may be key for Milan’s tactical approach and formation for next season. Gazzetta also reports that Vincenzo Montella has been testing formations with a three-man defense in training. This could see Alessio partnering with Leonardo Bonucci and Mateo Musacchio at the back.
