AC Milan could send Jens Petter Hauge out on loan this summer in order to get more playing time, according to a report.
Hauge arrived at San Siro for a Europa League qualifier against Milan for Bodo/Glimt and by the end of the night we had reported exclusively about Milan’s interest in the Norwegian youngster as he scored a thunderbolt in a 3-2 defeat.
Since then he has scored five goals in all competitions including three in the Europa League which earned the team six points in the process. However, he has also had some tough patches including being excluded from the EL squad for the knockout stages.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Hauge is a talent that Milan do not want to lose. In his first season with the Rossoneri he showed flashes of being a real player, a sign of how talented he is. However, a lack of minutes could lead to in-depth evaluations and it is for this reason that a departure on loan next season cannot be ruled out.
Interestingly, Pioli was asked about Hauge’s future earlier today at his pre-Sassuolo press conference and responded: “This is not the time to talk about the future. I am happy with Jens, we are a great club and therefore there is great competition.”
🤔 Is it finally time to admit that Leao is not an option at centre-forward, or has he shown enough?
