SEBASTIAN COATES will join the Rossoneri.
According to reports, AC Milan have secured the services of 19-year-old highly-rated central defender, Coates, who will start wearing Black & Red in January, when the transfer window reopens.
Coates is very tall (196 cm) and has good physical strength and great qualities; he’s good at high balls, good placement and high individual technique. He’s mobile too, and for that, he’s been likened to Brazil Captain Lucio.
Milan have started looking for replacement to the ageing Alessandro Nesta (34) and the young Uruguayan, who plays for Nacional, could be the man of Milan alongside Thiago Silva in the future.
The player will turn 20 by January and therefore he won’t be able to play for Milan’s Primavera, meaning he will be either loaned out or used in the first team.
Coates has played 12 official matches and scored 2 goals with the Primera División Uruguaya side. He also has 10 caps in the national team.
