On Thursday night, Andrea Petagna will be an opponent. However, if things had gone differently in the summer, then he could have been wearing the red and black shirt again.
The striker will be focused on getting SPAL out of the relegation zone, willing to hurt the club he grew up in, as he’s done in the past. However, in the summer, there was a possibility of returning back ‘home’, as reported by Calciomercato.com.
According to the report, Milan and SPAL held talks over the Italian striker’s future, as Boban and Maldini were looking for a striker. Petagna opened the door to a return, but the Rossoneri eventually opted for other targets.
It remains to be seen if Milan will make a new attempt in January. However, it’s safe to say that the transfer was a concrete idea in the summer, which could have resulted in return for the 24-year-old.
