Milan Make Headway in Talks to Acquire Spanish Fullback

Milan have struck a deal with Juan Miranda on a four-year contract, should he arrive in June. They have opened talks with Real Betis to bring him over in January considering their issues in the back, Fabrizio Romano reports (via Goal).

The Rossoneri have offered €2M for that purpose. The clubs will negotiate in the coming weeks. His arrival would be particularly useful with Theo Hernandez faring well as a center-back to replace the injured Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu.

According to Mundo Deportivo (via Fantacalcio), Milan might have to spend €4M to acquire Miranda in the upcoming window. They are seriously thinking about it since they need readymade reinforcements. Barcelona would be happy with the outcome because they have a re-sale clause.

The Rossoneri have been chasing the Spaniard for a few months ahead of a possible Bosman move after selling their previous deputy Fodé Ballo-Touré. The 23-year-old has logged 13 appearances so far this season, providing 2 assists.

Our Take on Milan and Miranda

Things change quickly in football. What looked like a secondary operation has become pretty meaningful in light of recent events. It’s probably not a coincidence that they accelerated again after the rumors about left-back needy Napoli tracking him too. The fee is modest enough for it to still be a bargain. They’d be more protected from adversities with him and Matteo Gabbia. Plus, they would save most of their budget for other positions.
