AC Milan welcomed back two defenders to training today ahead of the derby against Inter Milan this weekend. Simon Kjaer who was down with a flu against Hellas Verona and Andrea Conti who has been struggling with tonsilitis also trained with the group yesterday. Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has trained individually for the past two days and could finally join the group today.

The trio would be huge additions to the team ahead of the derby as they were sorely missed against Verona. Inter will be missing Handanovic, Bastoni and Martinez for the fixture. Milan currently sit in 6th place but are tied on points with Cagliari and Parma as they fight to lock down a European spot.
