If and when football restarts, AC Milan will be looking to hit the ground running. They want a new management structure — Ralf Rangnick, whom Chelsea also courted last year, is rumored to be arriving as technical director — and they want to reinforce the team, starting with the defence.

In that regard, according to a report from transfer oracle Fabrizio Romano for Calciomercato, the Rossoneri just might look towards Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

Milan already made an approach for Christensen last winter, but that was knocked back. Since then Lampard had started to play the 23-year-old much more regularly, but Milan apparently still believe that they could find a potential deal, citing a “good relationship” between the clubs though it’s unclear where that stems from. It’s not like they ever gave us any time with center back Alessio Romagnoli when he was supposedly on our shortlist.

Given that Christensen had been elevated to a first-choice starter before the break thus fulfilling his only ever desire of getting lots of minutes, and the likelihood of Chelsea prioritising other areas of the squad in the next transfer window, Milan are probably barking up the wrong tree here.
