Ciprian Tătăruşanu will arrive in Milano tomorrow and will become a Rossonero on Friday; he’ll act as Gigio’s deputy.
Pepe Reina left Milan for Lazio and Asmir Begović demanded a salary higher than what the Rossoneri were willing to offer. And so, in the past few days Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have been looking for a new second-choice goalkeeper.
A few names have been suggested, including those of Marco Sportiello and Andrea Consigli. However, in the end Milan chose to sign Ciprian Tătăruşanu.
As reported by Sky’s Gianluca Di Marzio, an agreement was found between the Diavolo and the French club and Tătăruşanu will sign a three-year contract. The 34-year-old will arrive in the city tomorrow and the medical check-ups will take place on Friday provided he tests negative for COVID.
Tătăruşanu, who acted as the second-choice keeper at Lyon last season, has history in Serie A: he played for Fiorentina from 2014 to 2017, playing 81 games in Italy. After Fiorentina, Tătăruşanu played two seasons at Nantes as the first-choice goalie, before moving to Lyon in the summer of 2019. After one season with Les Gones, the Romanian international moves to Red and Black.
Ciprian will add his qualities and experience to the young dressing room of Milan. The official announcement should arrive by the end of the week.
