Sergiño Dest is expected to become a new player of Milan as they wanted more cover after Florenzi’s injury.

Florenzi suffered a pretty serious flexor injury last night in Milan’s 0-0 draw with Sassuolo and he is expected to miss several months of action due to it.

As a result, the club moved today to find a new right-back on the mercato. As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, they’ve chosen to focus on Barcelona’s Sergiño Dest.

An agreement has been found with the Spanish club for a loan with option to buy for €20 million and there’s also one with Dest who will tomorrow arrive in Milano for his medical. The Rossoneri will pay his full salary while he’s on loan and give him a contract until 2027 to sign.

Villarreal were close to getting the player but Milan got the 21-year-old American, who can play both as a right-back and a left-back. Everything has been agreed, Dest is practically a new Rossonero.

We are very swift in this kind of deals while the right wing remained unaddressed for years ! Imagine this kind of deal from the blue


It’s amazing, Florenzi injured yesterday, new rb today.
No rw for 3 years… Can’t sign anyone!!

Please redbird, paolo, m&m, all we milanisti want is a rw!!!!!!!!!

Anyone will do


we are procrastinators. lol . Dest is a steal. Remember he was very close to joining bayern before he chose barcelona because messi. He’s very talented and young.


With thiaw signing, i think we are covered well in the back.
Kalulu will always be welcomed to the right back spot, if kjaer is fit or if thiaw turns out to be as good as kalulu.
So maybe dest can play as rw if needed? I’m not familiar with him but wasn’t he played as rw before?


Already done deal . Dest have speed,drible ,good pass too . He will be good for RB/RWB/RW . The downside are his bad defense atribute but we dont care about that with our high defense line & high press

Hearing that Ronaldo to Milan Leo to Chelsea how true is it hope it’s just a rumour because Rafael his still in his prime so The management shouldn’t think of it


This is good.
He will be an ideal backup for Theo.
And, if Salaemakers plays as the defensive RW up top, Dest can overlap and cause problems on the RW while Calabria rests.
This is smart.
20m is a lot though. He is not worth 20m to sign, so let’s see if he plays well this season.


now we have 5 players who has good driblling and passing, i hope our coach never playing diaz and sale as starters…


Strangely, Maldini didn’t add a new RW to the team roster. I wonder if the plan with the new players is for Pioli to change the formation to 3/5/2; this way, the team doesn’t need the RW and can rely on Calabria and Dest to cover the MR position. Just wondering!!
