Tuttosport: Milan have money to spend in January – Maldini has two positions in mind

By Isak Möller -

After the impressive mercato this summer, making a profit despite bringing in five players, Milan have some money left to spend in January. Their squad is pretty good as is, but some improvements can be made. 

As reported by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com), the Rossoneri have some money in the bank to invest in the winter market. Paolo Maldini, their sporting director, has two positions in mind that could be reinforced.

The two targets are a striker and a centre-back. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, despite his age, can play a lot but Milan also need a consistent backup. Lorenzo Colombo is still too young while Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic are better off on the left flank.

As for the centre-back position, they have really struggled there at the start of this season. Alessio Romagnoli has returned but Matteo Gabbia is out with COVID-19, while Leo Duarte (now recovered) and Mateo Musacchio (exit-bound) haven’t impressed.
