Argentine defender is preparing for the situation of system changes in the area of defense with the arrival of Bonucci. AC Milan coach, Vincenzo Montella reportedly will use the formation of three defenders, because they have a good choice.
“Can Musacchio play with three defender formations on the back line? Of course yes, this role he knows is true,” said Marcelo Lombilla, as reported by Tuttomercatoweb.
