Milan Might Not Stop at One Addition to Their Defense

Milan continue to be attached to new defenders each day. They could decide to bring in two and not just one in January since Malick Thiaw and Pierre Kalulu are out long-term and Simon Kjaer is struggling to stay healthy, Gianluca Di Marzio informs (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The German center-back received good news on Thursday. He won’t need surgery to repair his torn biceps femoris. Frosinone’s Riccardo Marchizza just went under the knife for a similar problem and will be back in March. The Rossoneri talent will return more quickly, perhaps in early February or sooner, SportMediaset informs.

Milan are reportedly mulling a reunion with Matteo Gabbia, but he might not be their lone addition. His fitness level will have to be assessed too. He left the most recent Europa League tilt on a stretcher after getting kneed in the head. He suffered a head trauma, Corriere della Sera relays.

Their crisis at the back will be exacerbated by Davide Calabria’s suspension in the upcoming Monza game. If Kjaer is unable to start, Stefano Pioli will turn to a youngster, either Jan-Carlo Simic or Davide Bartesaghi, Fantacalcio relays.

Our Take on the Milan Plans

There’s logic in bringing in multiple pieces. You never know with soft-tissue injuries, especially very severe ones. Gabbia makes more sense as part of a duo. But they’ll have to find somebody very solid on loan or for cheap.
