Having already made eight summer signings, the AC Milan management are at the point of fine tuning the squad available to Stefano Pioli.
After the numerous signings in midfield and in attack such as Tijjani Reijnders, Yunus Musah, Samuel Chukwueze and Noah Okafor, there has not yet been an investment made on a defender which could be a surprise given the struggles last season.
According to Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan) the management are looking for a reliable centre-back given Matteo Gabbia’s recent loan to Villarreal. The Rossoneri would like to complete the rearguard, while waiting to understand the fate of Mattia Caldara.
It is not easy to identify the adequate and suitable profile that falls within the economic and technical parameters, but the mission at the moment is to sign an Italian defender.
There is a very specific reason for this and it is related to the regulations for the registration of the squad list, particularly for the Champions League, which requires a certain amount of homegrown players.
