CM: Gonzalez takes on Rossoneri

Nicolas Gonzalez will face AC Milan on Saturday night, but he could actually be lining up for the Rossoneri against Fiorentina, a report says.

Calciomercato.com recalls how the Argentine winger was repeatedly linked with Milan in the summer of 2020 after helping Stuttgart get promoted back to the Bundesliga. Milan were indeed interested and the time they competed with Borussia Dortmund, but neither club deemed him worth the €20million asking price as he was just about to start his first season in a top European flight.

Instead, Jens Petter Hauge was awarded a Bodo/Glimt contract late in the window, while Ante Rebic and Alexis Saelemaekers were bought on a permanent basis to ensure the wings were in good condition. A year later, Gonzalez joined Fiorentina for 27 million euros.

He has missed time due to Covid-19 but has started just six of Fiorentina’s 12 league games so far this season, but has two goals and one assist, having recently switched from left to right.

How many he will make this weekend against Milan is unknown given his condition, but he will certainly make Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara some regrets.
