After having signed Fodé Ballo-Touré from Monaco as a deputy to Theo Hernandez in the left-back position. AC Milan management is now looking at the right side of the pitch where Davide Calabria is the starter.
The idea is to provide coach Pioli 2 players per each position in the squad, and in this sense, a right-back to rotate with Calabria is needed.
The first name on the list of Maldini and Ricky Massara is that of Diogo Dalot. However, it will not be easy to sign the Portuguese versatile full-back from Manchester United.
The negotiations with the English club is not going smoothly, writes Tuttosport today. The issue always remains the same. In fact, the Premier League giants do not want to let go their young player on a transfer based on a loan move. They are looking to monetise and bring in some cash thanks to an immediate sale.
Diogo Dalot knows Milanello well, the league and coach Pioli as he spent a good loan spell overall already last season, which is why the club has placed him on top of the list of targets for the right-back role.
