Milan worry over Romagnoli fitness ahead of derby

The Italian defender could miss his side’s Serie A meeting with city rivals Inter after suffering a groin injury on international duty

AC Milan will likely have to make do without the services of Alessio Romagnoli in Sunday’s derby clash with Inter due to a groin injury.

Raiola: New Donnarumma deal uncertain

The centre-back suffered a knock in Tuesday’s 0-0 international friendly draw between Italy and Germany and made way for Davide Astori at half-time.

It is not yet known how long the 21-year-old will be out of action, but a return in time to face Inter seems unlikely at this stage.
“Milan announce that Alessio Romagnoli suffered a groin injury during the match with Italy on Tuesday night,” a brief statement on the club’s website reads.

“The player will undergo further medical examination in the next few days.”

Juventus drop Donnarumma hint

Romagnoli has been a key figure for Milan this term, making 11 Serie A appearances.

Milan sit third in the table with 25 points from 12 games, five behind leaders Juventus but eight ahead of this weekend’s opponents Inter.
