AC Milan are likely to stop Pordenone from acquiring prized young midfielder Tommaso Pobega permanently next summer, a report claims.
The 20-year-old was loaned out to the Serie B side and has so far enjoyed an exceptional start to the season, netting three league goals plus one in the Coppa Italia.
He spent last season at Serie C side Ternana, where he scored three goals, and has drawn comparisons with Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic.
It is a season-long loan, but Pordenone have the option to make Pobega’s move permanent by paying €2.2million.
According to Calciomercato.com though, Milan are well aware of the development of their Primavera product.
The report claims that the Rossoneri are likely to stop that from happening by paying €2.4million, exercising a clause within the deal.
Milan have some exciting midfielders already in the Primavera, such as captain Marco Brescianini and Croatian Antonio Mionic.
