Galliani Looking To Sign Two Defenders For Milan In June

Milan transfer guru Adriano Galliani has admitted that the loss of Maldini at the end of the season will prompt him to acquire one or two new defenders.

Speaking after Milan’s triumph over Catania at the San Siro, vice president Adriano Galliani commented on his Milan squad, and the fact that there will need to be a few changes at the back for the Rossoneri at the end of the season.

There have been rumours that the likes of Thiago Silva, Sergio Ramos and Philippe Mexes may make the move too the San Siro club, but none have been confirmed by the Milan giants.

Retiring captain Paolo Maldini will not only leave a gap in the hearts of many calcio fans, but also a gaping hole in the Milan back line, which despite his 40 years of age, he still manages to cover.

After the Milan match Galliani revealed, “The defence is probably the position where age is an issue. Maldini will retire at the end of the season, and we will look to add one, or maybe two centre backs to the team.”
