The ex-Rossoneri defender believes the club’s latest acquisition, Brazilian Alex on a free transfer, represents a good piece of business but wants to see more new arrivals at San Siro.

However, he is unsure of who Milan could realistically hope to lure to Serie A owing to their reduced monetary resources.

“Alex is a great player and it has been a good acquisition to get him,” Nesta told “But Milan need other players to reinforce the defence and the midfield.

“The problem Milan have is linked to a lack of economic power in the transfer market. The economic situation in Italy does not help either.

“Only a few years ago Milan could spend €100m without any problems but now that isn’t possible anymore.

“Montolivo’s injury means the club has to look for a replacement but I don’t know who they can go and buy.

“It depends on the money they have available.”
