CM: Milan pondering future of young trio – the latest on Pobega, Colombo and Daniel Maldini

By Oliver Fisher -

Amid all the issues facing the Milan management this summer, they must resolve the future of three of their young players. writes how part of the duty for directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara is to carefully evaluate the path of the most promising Primavera graduates within the squad, namely Tommaso Pobega, Lorenzo Colombo and Daniel Maldini.

Starting with the former, Pobega had an excellent season with Spezia on loan in 2020-21, his first as a Serie A player. The Rossoneri are now evaluating him in the first days of preseason, but there is interest gathering and Atalanta are ready to pay €12m for the Italy U21 international. Milan are thinking of generating a possible capital gain but with a buy-back or a percentage of future resale.

Colombo meanwhile is expected to leave on loan after he spent the second half of the last campaign at Cremonese. Serie B clubs such as Pisa and Ascoli have come forward, with the Rossoneri firm in their stance that a permanent deal will not be considered.

Finally, Daniel Maldini is destined to stay and grow at Milanello, learning from Ibrahimovic and the others. At the moment, the idea of a loan remains a very remote on.
