Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan could miss out on new signing Junior Messias once again as the 30 year old attacker who joined from Crotone on deadline day has an issue again. The player has a muscle strain and is undergoing tests to determine the extent of the injury. He has only featured in one match this season coming off the bench against Atalanta as he needed to get up to scratch in terms of his fitness level. The issue is not very serious hence he should be out for a long time but it is frustrating to have him side lined again.

Corriere della Sera via MilanNews.it are reporting that he will definitely miss the matches against Hellas Verona, FC Porto and Bologna given he needs to second a second check up 10 days following the first MRI on Monday which showed an issue with the rectus femoris muscle on his left thigh. Thereafter he could risk one or two games getting back his match fitness.
