The agent of AC Milan’s Patrick Cutrone has revealed that there is interest in his client from abroad, but the young striker is happy with the Rossoneri.
Cutrone has amassed seven goals in all competitions this season so far, establishing himself as fierce competition to summer arrival Gonzalo Higuain, even playing out wide recently.
His representative Donato Orgnoni has admitted that clubs from Spain and Germany hold an interest in the 21-year-old, but he is not looking for a move away from his boyhood club.
“Had he been foreign he’d have attracted much more interest, even if he remains one of the top Italian youngsters,” he told MilanNews.it, via Football Italia.
“We’ve had many shows of interest from foreign teams, with enquiries from Spain and one from Germany, but Patrick wants to keep doing well for Milan.
“We expect Cutrone to have the same chances in 2019 that he had last year. After that, it’ll be up to him to do well on the field with his performances, goals and, possibly, awards.
“There’s a lot of talk of new strikers, but we never talk about them. We know that the club must work to improve the team, but we’ve never been afraid, not even when Higuain arrived.
“He’s grown a lot working alongside Higuain. Pipita remains one of the best strikers in the world.
“His bad run aside, Gonzalo is a great player and Patrick is trying to steal as many things from him as possible.
“They work very well together. Patrick is aware of Pipita’s quality and wants to learn from him.
“Patrick wants to do well in the European Under-21 Championship. That’s the only reason why Patrick hasn’t been called up to the national team.
“Mancini knows him well and doesn’t need to try him out.”
