Leo Duarte injured, here is the update
Today we receive bad news. As we understand AC Milan’s center defender Leo Duarte was injured, and will be out of the fields 3-4 months.
Duarte sustained fracture on his left leg, and underwent surgery in the Alfredson Tendon Clinic in Umea. The surgery performed by Hakan Alfredson was successful.
This injury comes as a blow to AC Milan’s management, and they will have to intervene in January. However as we understand Mattia Caldara will be given chance to get back in the form he was. Since Caldara recovered from his injury, he did not started to play on highest level yet.
If Mattia manages to regain his form in the next 30 – 45 days, AC Milan might not buy defender in January. However if Caldara does not convince the management, they will start looking for reinforcement.
As we understand primary target will be Juventus’s defender Merih Demiral. Demiral would cost the rossoneri around 35 million euros.
