With the news that fullback Mattia De Sciglio may miss up two months due to injury, Milan are now looking for at least a temporary replacement.
Two names already being mentioned are those of left-backs Guilherme Siqueria and Douglas Santos, both of Atletico Madrid. Siqueria is considered the club’s first choice, and after discussions earlier in the week that centered on Milan taking him on loan, the rossoneri are reportedly now prepared to make an offer to buy the player outright. Santos, in contrast, is already out on loan to Atletico Minerio from his parent club, and more careful negotiation would be needed to sort out an eventual Milan move for him. Negotiations for both must be considered to be in the very earliest of stages. Regardless, the position of left-back has become of utmost importance in this transfer window for Milan, and some moves will likely be made.
