Bonaventura risks five months out

Milan risk losing Giacomo Bonaventura for three to five months, but Ivan Strinic is almost ready to return after heart problems.

The Rossoneri have struggled with injuries this season and will be without Lucas Biglia, Mateo Musacchio and Mattia Caldara until 2019.

According to Sky Sport Italia, a decision will be made tomorrow on whether or not Bonaventura will go under the knife to rectify a recurring knee inflammation.

It is seemingly linked with the cartilage and if he does have surgery, it could keep the Italy international out of action for three to five months.

There is some good news, which is that Strinic has reportedly shown improvement after tests on his cardiac issues and could be close to a comeback.

The Croatia international was signed as a free agent over the summer from Sampdoria, but is yet to make his debut in a Rossoneri jersey, as pre-season fitness tests flagged up heart problems.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Strinic is expected to pass the next series of tests and be given the all-clear to resume training.
