With Kalulu's signing, I doubt we sign a RB until one of Conti/Calabria are sold. And I don't see anyone coming in for them unless it's a loan + option.
Kalulu is 20, a 20 year old should be tested with first team, you should not care about italian media and the way they have tried to underrated Kalulu, they did the same with Leao last year.
Paolo Maldini said:They used to look for a defender who could fit well into that team, whereas now I'd go to find a player who is good at one-on-one situations and then teach him to fit into that role. The most difficult thing to teach is how to take men on, because it's about concentration.
At this moment, due to the way we play and also the general football situation, I'd get a defender who is good at taking men on and then the coach can teach him to be part of the defense.
If we can send him on a short term loan to a midtable or bottom table Serie A side to gain experience that would be great.Explains this transfer. Kalulu might be lacking in some aspects but he looks good in one-on-one situations. Not sure if Milan was the right career move for him, considering that this was his first start and maybe even appearance in a (barely) competitive game, but the kid has some impressive qualities.
