AC Milan are 12 points behind Napoli who are flying with an incredible pace towards the Scudetto. The Rossoneri suffered another loss, and this time against Lazio in the league last night 4-0, which makes the league trophy dream get even further away.
The defence is shaky to say the least. The Rossoneri boss of Stefano Pioli would like to see it strong again and that may be done with a last-minute reinforcement coming from La Liga.
According to what has been reported by those at Calciomercatoweb.it, AC Milan have set their sights on a possible transfer operation: signing Nacho Fernandez from Real Madrid in January for a low fee before his contract expiry in the summer. Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara could accelerate talks for him as they are already in contacts with intermediaries (who are also working on the Zaniolo deal between Milan and Roma).
Nacho is very experienced thanks to the participations at the highest levels with Los Blancos. He is a versatile centre-back and is 33 years of age. It is not excluded that AC Milan try to sign him in January, maybe for around 4 or 5 million euros and Carlo Ancelotti could even give the green light to such operation, concludes the same source.
