With Daniele Bonera out for three months, it’s reported Milan are in talks for Inter defender Matias Silvestre.
It was announced this evening that Bonera is out for 70-90 days with a fractured right knee-cap, leaving the Rossoneri with a gaping hole in their defence.
Sky Sport Italia claim they have immediately rushed to find a suitable replacement, targeting Inter benchwarmer Silvestre.
The Argentine has had a chaotic summer, as Inter did not want to make his loan move from Palermo permanent, but were forced to by a clause in his contract.
He turned down a transfer to Parma as part of the Ishak Belfodil move and is now considering an offer from Genoa.
Milan’s injury problems have seen them dive back on to Silvestre, though they hope to take him on loan rather than in a co-ownership deal.
