Milan interested in Aston Villa’s Diego Carlos

AC Milan are interested in signing Diego Carlos from Aston Villa this summer, according to AS.

Having seen their city rivals Inter clinch the Scudetto by winning the Derby della Madoninna earlier this week, the Rossoneri are still in second place in the Serie A rankings with their five-point advantage over Juventus intact after their goalless clash on Saturday in Turin. With four rounds remaining to be played, they appear likely to finish the season there as well.

However, the 2023/24 campaign has had its downside for Stefano Pioli and his team, and it remains uncertain if the 58-year-old tactician will remain at the helm. But the club are already working on squad reinforcements for the near future, and they see the back line as a part that needs strengthening, given that no team within the top five in the league has conceded more goals than their tally of 39.

Carlos, the 31-year-old Brazilian centre-back, still has two years left on his contract at Villa Park, and the negotiations between the clubs that are yet to take place are not expected to be easy.
