Tuttosport: Verona express interest in Milan outcast Caldara – the situation

By Isak Möller -

Mattia Caldara is destined to leave AC Milan this summer but the Rossoneri have not received any concrete offers for the centre-back. That could be about to change, though, according to a report. 

Caldara spent last season on loan at Spezia and still has one year left on his contract with Milan. Since Spezia got relegated, they never exercised the €3m buy-out clause in the loan deal and the defender is thus back at Milan.

According to yesterday’s edition of Tuttosport, as cited by MilanNews, Hellas Verona have expressed an interest in the 29-year-old. They were the ones that relegated Spezia after winning the play-off game, it’s worth noting.

Milan will likely not demand a lot for his departure and could possibly even terminate his contract, even if he’s still worth just over €5m on the balance sheet. It remains to be seen if a solution can be found between the parties. Staying at Milan isn’t an option, that’s for sure.

  1. It’s sad what happened to him. Once a very promising player. I’d unfortunately just say terminate his contract and let him go on a free transfer.

    1. A lot of Italian central defenders over last 10 years have not lived up to their potential, Rugani, Romaniogli etc, it seems to be a real problem within seria A for quality Italian defenders, who we would have ever thought that would have happened.

      It seems the world famous Italian central defender is a thing of the past.

      1. Romagnoli was pretty good, but not always great and at least he was able to play a lot. Caldara had such bad injuries it derailed his career almost entirely.

  2. Caldara on Atalanta was a beast. Amazing defence and scored many goals.. Not sure what went wrong with him whether it was due to injuries or other reasons but scalvini scares me because he reminds me of him

  3. I was watching every game of Spezia in the second half of the season because Shomurodov as he is from my country.
    This guy Caldara was causing stupid penalties and goals to his team and he eventually got benched.

    Honestly, I never such a disaster player, he looked like amateur among pros.

    He may injure some players if he train in Milan team. Just give him away or terminate his contract.
    I cannot believe he is a football player
