    Pierre Kalulu will play for the Diavolo next season and he’s capable of taking a role anywhere in the back four.

    The season of Milan resumed last night as they took on Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final, which ended in a 0-0 draw resulting in the Diavolo getting eliminated due to away goals.

    However, the management is already thinking of next season and it appears that they have secured the first signing of the summer: 20-year-old defender Pierre Kalulu.

    The news was broken on Saturday by L’Equipe and was later confirmed by, Gianluca Di Marzio and others: Kalulu has decided to turn down an offer from Lyon to renew his expiring deal and has decided to join Milan, snubbing Bayern Munich who also wanted him.

    Kalulu, a versatile defender who primarily plays as a right back but can also play on the left and in the center of defense, is brought by Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara. In fact, L’Equipe suggest that a conversation between the Frenchman and Maldini is what made the youngster choose Milan over the others. Kalulu was approved by all the scouts of Milan and he’ll arrive for almost free.

    Nicolò Schira says Milan will play Lyon €480k for the player as FIFA training fees. Meanwhile, there is a total agreement between the club and the player’s agent Vlado Lemić for a contract until June 2025, worth €500k per season. According to Di Marzio, on Monday Kalulu will be in Milano for his medical.

    While Kalulu never played for Lyon’s first team, he was the Captain of the U19 team and played 16 games in the UEFA Youth League as a starter. He is known for his stamina and is a modern fullback.
