It seems the love story between Milan and Kevin-Prince Boateng is not over yet.

As reported by the Italian website, the German-Ghanian midfielder is going to sign with the Rossoneri after the termination of his contract with Schalke 04 in January.

Boateng has been training at Milanello for a month, and he has been playing well since he joined the team. It seems Sinisa Mihajlović decided to make the move definitive as soon as possible. The Rossoneri have been struggling in the midfield all season, and they desperately need a reinforcement in that position. But is Boateng a good choice?

Milan fans know Boateng is not the kind of player who can manage the pace of the game, which is what Milan needs. But he is an athletic and dynamic trequartista or box-to-box midfielder so his addition to the team does not seem necessary but it is still relatively useful. Mihajlović worked on a 4-4-2 formation recently. If he sticks with it, Milan would need players who can play both in a three-man midfield with the trequartista or in a four-man setup, especially on the right wing.

Boateng can surely fit in both formations as central, attacking or right midfielder. For that reason, his versatility could be useful for Milan in the second part of the season, especially if he is able to play like he did in his best seasons.
