Milan Unwilling to Spend Early for Two Future Signings

Milan have been tracking Juan Miranda and Lloyd Kelly, but they’ll probably wait until they are out of contract to sign them, as they don’t want to spend for them in January. Both players are on expiring deals and would aid them immediately due to their injury crisis, TuttoSport relays (via Tribuna).

However, the Rossoneri have opted against paying a fee for either. The fullback is destined to join them in a Bosman move. Real Betis want too much for their liking to move up his arrival.

While Milan are very confident they’ll land Miranda gratis, they’ll have to tussle with a few sides for Kelly. Including his own, Bournemouth, which haven’t given up hope about extending his contract.

While the Spaniard could be acquired with a small investment, the Cherries are reluctant to negotiate the departure of their staple.

The Rossoneri will reunite with Matteo Gabbia at the beginning of January and are seeking a further center-back to address their emergency. Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw, and Pierre Kalulu will be out for at least another month.

Our Take on Milan, Miranda, and Kelly

It’s an understandable strategy, provided they are indeed successful in their intent, but they could use another piece stat. It’d make more sense to shell out a small sum for somebody they’ll have long-term rather than going for an underwhelming six-month flier. Theo Hernandez’s backup has been a sore spot for a few years, and he has been serviceable in the center.
