Romano: Young defender makes decision on Milan transfer amid expiring contract

By Isak Möller -

Milan are always looking to reinforce their squad with young players, especially in view of the future. Pierre Kalulu, for example, arrived for free this summer despite his talent, which was great business by the Rossoneri. 

And he certainly isn’t the only young defender Milan have been keeping tabs on, as reported by Fabrizio Romano for Calciomercato.com. Melayro Bogarde is another player that they have been following for several months.

The 18-year-old’s contract with Hoffenheim will expire in the summer and thus represents a great opportunity on the market. In fact, the Rossoneri directors have been in contact with his agents for a long time to probe the ground.

It’s certainly an honour for the youngster, who likes Milan just like other suitors that have been in touch. As of today, however, Bogarde’s intention is to evaluate clubs where he can immediately become a starter.

At Milan, he would be up against Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli and Matteo Gabbia. In addition, a young player like Kalulu has already been given the chance. Therefore, the Bogarde track has cooled down.
