AC Milan fully intend to have midfielder Tommaso Pobega back at base and at the disposal of head coach Stefano Pioli for next season, a report claims.
Milan chose to let Pobega leave on loan to Spezia during the summer transfer window having got a deal for Sandro Tonali over the line.
Although an option to buy is included in favour of the newly-promoted club, the Rossoneri management also inserted a buy-back clause to protect themselves and also renewed his contract until 2025.
According to Calciomercato.it, Milan are already thinking of the 21-year-old’s return to the club. He scored a brace on Thursday afternoon that allowed Italy’s U21 side to beat Iceland and get closer to qualifying for the next European Championships.
He also scored for Spezia against Juventus and Benevento in recent weeks showing his development is ongoing, and Milan are happy with Pobega’s growth.
As mentioned, he renewed his contract with the Rossoneri before heading out on loan which is an obvious sign the club believe in him, and they intend for Pobega to be back under Stefano Pioli’s orders for the 2021-22 season – this time to stay.
