Milan Pounces on Young Right Back


Youth Update 22/6/2020


Milan last week signed talented French right back Pierre Kalulu from Lyon.


The news comes as a huge blow to Lyon Sporting Director Juninho who has been working for some time to secure the promising 20 year old's signature. It is said that Milan's Paolo Maldini convinced Kalulu to reject offers from Bayern Munich and Lyon to sign for Milan.


Kalulu has been described as a tall and athletic player who boasts significant pace and passing skills. His ability to cross over from defense to attack has also been lauded by many and attracted much interest.


Milan's current right backs are Andrea Conti and Davide Calabria. Both are still yet to claim the position for themselves, neither providing consistent performances to warrant long term first team selection.
