There are serious concerns for Milan, as goalkeeper Mike Maignan will have keyhole surgery tomorrow to resolve a recurring wrist problem.
The shot-stopper was on the bench for France during the Nations League, which his team won by beating Spain 2-1 in the Final at San Siro.
However, a statement released by the club this evening confirms Maignan is continuing to feel pain in his left wrist.
This injury was first sustained when saving Mohamed Salah’s penalty in a 3-2 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League, as he collided with the upright.
The situation is so serious that, following a specialist consultation, Maignan will have keyhole surgery tomorrow with Professor Loris Pegoli.
It is not clear how long he will be out for, but La Gazzetta dello Sport predicts 10-15 days at least.
The 26-year-old was signed from Lille over the summer for €13m and has so far kept three clean sheets in nine competitive games for the Rossoneri.
Milan have two other goalkeepers in the squad, Ciprian Tatarusanu and Alessandro Plizzari, but there are problems here too.
Plizzari is unavailable until January 2022 following knee surgery on September 22.
