The former AC Milan defender Tiago Djalo, who has been linked with a return to the club, could join Juventus at the end of the season. As per a report, the defender has sanctioned his agents to open talks with the Bianconeri. 

Milan signed Djalo for Sporting’s reverse team back in January 2019 and the centre-back impressed with the Primavera side. Just six months later, however, the Rossoneri sent him to Lille as part of the deal that brought Rafael Leao to the club.

Djalo has since become a very good centre-back and a starter for Lille, even though he’s currently sidelined due to a cruciate ligament tear. As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, the 23-year-old has given his agents the go-ahead to open talks with Juventus, as his contract will expire in the summer.

Milan have also been linked with the defender in recent months, but ideally they would sign someone this month. Timing-wise, therefore, the Rossoneri might not get the chance to make a proper attempt for Djalo.

Matteo Gabbia has returned to the ranks and if another defender were to join the club this month, the centre-back position will likely not be a priority in the summer. Especially since Pierre Kalulu, Malick Thiaw and Fikayo Tomori will return eventually.
