by | Dec 3, 2021 14:01

Milan are considering their options to replace the injured Simon Kjaer, including bringing Mattia Caldara back from his loan at Venezia.

The Denmark international will undergo knee surgery today and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, he could remain out of action for up to six months.

Therefore, Milan will likely change their transfer strategy for January as director Paolo Maldini had claimed the club was not planning to bring in new faces in the winter transfer window.

There is a host of defenders linked with a move to San Siro.

Milan forced to change transfer strategy after Kjaer knee injury

According to, Monaco’s Benoît Badiashile, Lens’ Facundo Medina and Caleb Okoli, currently on loan at Cremonese from Atalanta, are all on the club’s radars.

Milan’s main target is Torino’s Gleison Bremer, but the Granata are unlikely to sell their star in the January transfer window, so Milan are already working ahead of a possible transfer in the summer.

According to and Tuttosport, Mattia Caldara’s return from his loan at Venezia is also an option for the Rossoneri.

Caldara, 27, joined the newly-promoted Serie A side on a temporary deal in the summer and has played 12 games this season.

He moved to Milan from Juventus in a swap deal involving Leonardo Bonucci and Gonzalo Higuain in 2018, but only played two games with the Rossoneri.

Last but not least, Tuttosport reports Chelsea’s Malang Sarr could be offered to Milan as the Serie A giants and the Blues are on good terms following the transfers of Fikayo Tomori, Olivier Giroud and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

    Don’t bring Caldara back. He seems uninterested and constantly injured when he’s actually with Milan directly.

    You think Milan are going by the advice of these rumour mill merchant ‘experts’? hehe.

    Caldara could actually do his part when he is fully fit. WHEN!! Now he did play almost half a season and I Think his injury nightmare could be over

  4. DB Milan

    Caldara seems like the right option, assuming he stays fit. Remember there is a good defender in there and he has played regularly this season. He would only be backup to Tomori and Romagnoli anyway.

    Milanista Rosario, whatever advice Milan takes, they are not going to invest in a top level center back. Looking for the cheap option does not win titles. Be bold and brave, speculate to accumulate. Anyways we will be overtaking you very soon.

    Seems Inter fans have the same sense of financial management as their owners- none whatsoever.
    Overspending to the point of bankruptcy, accumulating enormous debt, is not a model anyone should follow.

    @Rosario Sempre Inter – What part of Milan’s defensive investments are cheap? Tomori and Theo in the space of a few seasons, investing in youth rather than spending tons of money on fringe players like we used to and like Inter continue to do.
