Milan and Italy full-back Mattia De Sciglio is set to have surgery on Wednesday to resolve a knee problem.
The 20-year-old defender will be operated on by professor Schonhuber in the fashion capital of Italy.
Tests earlier this week underlined the need for an operation to rectify meniscus damage on his left knee.
If all goes well, De Sciglio could be back to full fitness in about 30-40 days.
