AC Milan consider Pierre Kalulu to be an important resource moving forward and a symbol of their youth project, a report claims.
Calciomercato.com assesses Kalulu’s current moment and begins by recalling that Davide Calabria withdrew from the national team camp with an injury and Alessandro Florenzi is still out after a knee operation, so Kalulu could therefore step up again and start against Hellas Verona on Saturday night at San Siro.
The Frenchman is described as the perfect representation of how the owners Elliott Management – plus CEO Ivan Gazidis and the management of Paolo Maldini, Ricky Massara and Geoffrey Moncada – want Milan’s project to look.
The Rossoneri paid Lyon €450k to sign Kalulu when he had not even made a single appearance in Ligue 1, but he had shown excellent things in the Youth League and with the French youth national teams.
He came on in the game against Juventus in the most delicate match of the season so far and made a big impact, even nearly scoring the winning goal, and with both his performances plus his desire to work hard and grow in training Milan know they have made a good investment for the long-term.
