CM: Milan want Champions League revenue boost to sign a high-level defender – the names

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are beginning to narrow down the list of defensive options they are considering for January, with various tracks being probed.

Calciomercato.com reports that Milan winning against Liverpool tonight and making the last 16 of the Champions League (providing the right result arrives in Porto) is a result that would be fundamental both from a sporting and an economic point of view because it would boost the Rossoneri’s revenue by €20m.

This is very big ahead of the January market, and while the percentage to be allocated will depend on the opportunities that arise, it is clear that a new high-level centre-back would come next month.

Bremer of Torino is the great dream but Torino do not seem willing to sell, which is why Sven Botman of Lille is also considered, but for now his asking price is €30m. Then, Massara and Maldini are starting to work on Danish international Christensen whose contract with Chelsea is about to expire, while Nikola Milenkovic’s candidacy also remains and there have been talks with his agent in recent days.

    If Christensen or Milenkovic arrive it would be great, but it will also mean game over for Romagnoli and demotion to CB3 for Kjaer, right after being hailed and given a contract extension. The club are not going to bring in two good defenders in their prime to sit behind Tomori, Kjaer and Romagnoli next season. They will be paired with Tomori as the starters. I wasn’t aware that Christensen’s contract was running out this summer. Even if he doesn’t arrive this January I think that would be a fantastic free signing in the summer to replace Romagnoli. He is only 25 and has tons of experience, including Serie A.
