Milan director Geoffrey Moncada has opened direct talks with Aston Villa defender Diego Carlos ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Rossoneri have struggled with cover in defence for large parts of this season, an issue that’ll again be present in their upcoming clash with Juventus. As such, a new centre back is one of many reinforcements set to arrive in the summer.

With Malick Thiaw attracting attention, Milan have started to draw up a list of possible candidates to bolster their backline, including Torino’s Alessandro Buongiorno, Brest’s Lilian Brassier and Wolfsburg’s Maxence Lacroix.

The Rossoneri appreciate the 31-year-old’s leadership skills, experience, strong aerial ability and strong man-marking. The Villans aren’t keen to give up the defender for cheap, having spent €31m to sign him from Sevilla back in July 2022.
