AC Milan, a powerhouse in Serie A, is allegedly interested in acquiring young Spanish defender prospect Alejandro Balde from Barcelona in 2023
The Italian club AC Milan is reportedly interested in signing Alejandro Balde, according to a report from the Spanish news site Fichajes. The league leaders in Serie A are keeping a careful eye on what is happening with him at FC Barcelona. If he does not commit to a new term, the Rossoneri will begin their pursuit of the emerging star who now plays for the Catalan club.
Alejandro Balde has been consistently regarded as one of the best fullbacks in Spain for a number of years. The 19-year-old has a strong track record of success during his time while playing at the renowned La Masia in Barcelona. And after making his debut with the first team during the previous campaign, he has established himself as a regular member of the first-team squad at Camp Nou this season.
As one of the most promising young players in Spanish football, he has already appeared 15 times for Barcelona this season, contributing three assists while doing so. The development of Balde has not gone unnoticed though, as shown by the fact that a number of teams have set their eyes on him. And it’s possible that AC Milan will begin their pursuit of Barcelona potential very soon.
At the moment, Stefano Pioli has a choice between two different left-backs to use at San Siro. Fode Ballo-Toure, on the other hand, has been inconsistent during his time at AC Milan, in contrast to Theo Hernandez, who has been a standout player for the team. Since his terrible performance against Chelsea more than a month ago, the Senegalese defender has not been given the starting nod in any of the team’s games.
Because of this, AC Milan may try to sell Ballo-Toure during the summer transfer window and try to replace him with another player. As a result, Balde has become an attractive possibility for the Rossoneri, and the current status of the defender’s contract with Barcelona is the primary focus of attention. If the player does not sign a new contract with the club before the conclusion of the current campaign, AC Milan will begin their pursuit of the player.
According to a number of recent reports, Balde is reportedly in discussions with Barcelona to prolong his tenure at Camp Nou. By tying the budding star, who is just 19 years old, down to a long-term deal, the Catalan giants seek to ensure the young star’s future success.
However, if the discussions go on for months, AC Milan may begin to consider the possibility of signing the young talent. Nevertheless, there seems to be an extremely remote possibility that the Serie A winners will be successful in luring Balde away from Barcelona the next season.
