Mattia Caldara is currently on loan at Spezia and has done quite well so far this season. AC Milan still own the centre-back but it finally looks like he could leave on a permanent basis, or at least the player himself hopes so.
Caldara arrived at Milan back in the summer of 2018 but injuries completely ruined his spell at the club. In fact, he made just two appearances for the Rossoneri before he started going out on loan (Atalanta, Venezia and now Spezia).
There is a buy-out clause included in the loan deal and Caldara is hoping that Spezia will trigger it at the end of the season. Speaking to La Nazione, as cited by SempreMilan.it, he made this desire very clear.
“I want to continue the positive trend of recent performances to help the team reach salvation. I hope that Spezia will redeem me from Milan to start an important cycle here. I feel good, I like being here and on a physical level, I no longer have any problems,” he stated.
The clause is valued at €3m and that is indeed a low figure, considering that Milan once paid nearly €40m (although Leao Bonucci went the other way for the same fee) to secure him from Juventus.
