Agent of Daniel Maldini and Lorenzo Colombo speaks on their future at Milan

The agent of AC Milan duo Lorenzo Colombo and Daniel Maldini has spoken about what the future holds for both of his clients.

Milan made the decision during the summer transfer window to sign Pietro Pellegri on loan from Monaco with an option to buy and to send Colombo out to Serie B side SPAL, where he has six league goals in 15 appearances so far.

Finally, he also gave an anecdote on the strangest negotiation he was involved in, and it is the well-known Carlos Tevez to Milan deal that never materialised.

“Tevez at Milan, which unfortunately did not conclude. And also De Jong to Manchester City. Which director is most difficult to negotiate with? Adriano Galliani.”
