Bild: Details of Hauge deal emerge – the scenario in which he could return to Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

A few days ago, Jens Petter Hauge moved from Milan to Eintracht Frankfurt on loan with obligation to buy back under certain conditions.

After impressing a lot in the first half of the season including being the top scorer in the Europa League group stages for Milan, things were looking up for the 21-year-old. However, he played very little in the second half of the season as head coach Stefano Pioli seemed to lose faith in the Norwegian, which resulted in his sale.

According to reports from Bild in Germany (via MilanNews), the terms under which the Norwegian player’s option to buy becomes an obligation have now emerged. The move will become a permanent one as soon as Eintracht have mathematically survived in the Bundesliga in the upcoming season, and therefore will remain in the top flight for the 2022-23 season.

If they are in fact relegated from the Bundesliga, then it could be the case that Hauge returns to Milan when the club would have the choice whether to bet on him for that upcoming season or try find new accommodation for him again.

    so basically he ain’t coming back? ok

    1. victor says:

      That’s right. We have lost a very promising player thanks to Pioli’s lack of foresight.

      What dumb clause is it…just waste of space in the paper…they finished 5th in the league table last season…in sports it can happen but it’s just so weak/name sake clause and in favor of other club

  2. Joe101 says:

    I still don’t get why that clause had to be an obligation and not an option

    Poor guy. I don’t get why they didn’t want him at milan. The few minutes he got I thought he was good enough. I wish him all the best. I think milan is going to regret this deal.

      In my opinion, I thought he really did well on the pitch, he was already becoming my favourite. I’m going to miss him.

  4. Warrior says:

    He played well in all his game but pioli never liked him. He is a great player and he will become 1 of the best winger

  5. Andreas says:

    We should have sold Leao instead, he keeps losing value each day, he was a bet that we lost and we need to recoup as much of the investment as possible, meanwhile Hauge without playing even half of the minutes Leao had managed to double his value, if only Pioli was not as stubborn and played him more often he could triple his value if money is what they are after.
