Milan to evaluate Caldara during the pre-season preparations, a few teams have asked for information on him

Mattia Caldara is set to return to Milan after his time at Atalanta and it remains to be seen what will be done with him.

In 2018, Milan reached an agreement with Juventus which saw them exchange Leonardo Bonucci for Mattia Caldara.

The center-back however failed to make any sort of impact at the club, spending the vast majority of his time at Milan injured – making just 2 appearances.

In January 2020, Caldara and Milan decided to it was best to part ways and the Italian returned to Atalanta, where he’d previously made a name for himself, on an 18-month loan deal with option to buy for an undisclosed fee. However, Atalanta have chosen to not use their option to buy out the player.

As a result, Caldara, now 27, is set to return. As reported by today, some clubs have asked for information about Mattia – also clubs from abroad – but at the moment there are no negotiations in place with anyone. In any case, Milan want to evaluate the player during the pre-season to see if he can be useful during the next season, as he has a contract until 2023.

Caldara will have to impress Pioli and make him believe that he can be a valuable member of a squad that will play in the Champions League next season and will again be in the fight for Top 4.

milan swapped him for their most expensive cb of all time. might as well play him next season in coppa or serie a vs minnows, why not?


Totally agree, if he’s ever off the treatment table!


bad luck i guess. i hope he can like van persie or robben and continue pressing on not give up and quit like deisler


Kjaer, tomori, romagnoli, caldara, gabbia – unless any of them leaves, our centrebacks are set for next season.

If conti/dalot is staying, kalulu should leave on loan. Either conti, dalot or kalulu can rotate with calabria.

So imo the only defence position that require strengthening is a back up for theo.
