Milan Further Talks to Onboard Fullback on a Free Move

Milan didn’t address their left-back position after the departure of Fodé Ballo-Touré, but they might do it in the future, and Juan Miranda is one of their top targets. The contract of the Spaniard expires at the end of the season. They are keen on onboarding him on a free transfer, TuttoSport informs.

They have been in touch with his agents to lay the groundwork. He’s been a regular for Real Betis from February on. He has accumulated 84 appearances, 8 goals, and 9 assists since joining in 2020. The defender initially switched sides on loan from Barcelona after a spell at Schalke 04 and then stayed put gratis.

Miranda isn’t the only fullback Milan laid eyes on, but he might be the easiest to acquire. The Rossoneri are among the sides tracking Boca Juniors prodigy Valentin Barco. He has a €10M release clause, but the competition is stiff. Manchester City, in particular, might activate it.

Stefano Pioli had to change the scheme the only time Theo Hernandez rested, as Davide Calabria was out too. Alessandro Florenzi and youngster Davide Bartesaghi are his current backups. The prodigy recently inked his first pro contract.

Our Take on Milan and Miranda

They might take a look at what they have in their talent before putting pedal to the medal on an addition, but he’s 17 after all. It’d be the right way to address a hole that’s not so significant.
