's director has spoken about the club’s transfer policy in the winter transfer window. He claims that they had to fight hard with

Chelsea

to secure the buying option to the contract of Fikayo Tomori. He also states that Milan is not looking to add a new left-back.

“Milan want to compete to the end on all three competitions, so especially in a season like this where there are more injuries due to the packed fixture list and the COVID variable too, we want to give the coach as many options to choose from as possible,”

Massara told Sky Sport Italia.

“I think for now the entries in this transfer window have terminated. We’ll see over the next 10 days if there are any other opportunities, but realistically, we’re done now.

“We’ve had to face some emergency situations due to injuries, bans and COVID, so the coach had to create solutions and find new aspects to players in different roles. It’s going to be wide open to the end in the race for a Champions League spot, so we want to be in a position to give our all throughout the campaign.”

“Whenever we sign a player on loan, we always try to get an option to buy. We had to fight pretty hard with Chelsea to get that option on Tomori.

“We believe he is versatile and suits our style of football, so he brings characteristics in his aggression and pace that some of our other players in those roles don’t have in quite the same way.

“We consider our defence complete with these players and trust we can continue well with this squad. It’s tough from tonight, of course, as Atalanta are capable of troubling any opponent.”
