The Mexican super-goalkeeper could eventually end up in Serie A…
Milan are keeping close tabs on Ajaccio’s stronghold guardian Guillermo Ochoa, according to canalemilan.it.
The Rossoneri are not short of goalkeeping options, with Christian Abbiati, Marco Amelia, Ferdinando Coppola and Gabriel in the roster. However, first choice Abbiati has failed to live up to expectations so far the season and is unlikely to get a new contract in June. Amelia’s future is up in the air, as well as Coppola’s. With Gabriel returning to full action soon, the 35-year-old might be shown the exit door once again.
In case Japan international Keisuke Honda doesn’t move at the San Siro in January, reports claim that Milan come up with a plan B. This kind of a U-turn would in fact be in favor of Ochoa.
The 28-year-old former Club America player has become on of the greatest Ligue 1 man in front of the goal line. It was the 1-1 draw at the Parc des Princes in mid-August that brought Ochoa this sort of epithet.
That evening the French champions had 39 shots on goal and the Mexican international saved 12 of them, putting on one of the best goalkeeping displays seen in the league for a long time. Following that draw, they went on to keep two clean sheets in their next two matches against Nice and Sochaux as both finished goalless.
Only couple of weeks later, El Universal revealed that the famous Momo could be on his way to Milan before the transfer window closes. However, Ochoao’s likely departure on a Bosman deal in June 2014 could force French side Ajaccio into selling their jewel.
