Among the most significant statements that Paolo Maldini made prior to the game against Torino last night was his declaration that AC Milan will not be busy in the January window.
Maldini was asked about what can be expected this month given the links with a move for a new goalkeeper and potentially for reinforcements in other departments, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
“We have faith in Tatarusanu who has played excellent games, we have Mirante and we have signed Vazquez. There is no other operation in sight. We won’t make large investments and we won’t do anything in the winter transfer market,” he said.
Therefore, Pioli will have to bring out the best from the squad that he has available even despite the long list of injury problems that he is battling. Milan had 10 absentees for the defeat against Torino last night, and with so many players missing it is tough to make headway in all competitions.
The Rossoneri do not have a history of making big splashes in the winter transfer window, with Fikayo Tomori being perhaps the biggest arrival since Maldini and Massara started running the technical area.
