AC Milan rejected a loan offer in January for striker Lorenzo Colombo as the club have big plans for him, according to a report.
The 18-year-old has been with the Rossoneri since he was six years old and has completed the whole set of youth teams up to the first team. It is the story of a player with Milan in his heart, and his arrival in the first team – which took place in June – was experienced with great emotion.
He netted three goals in preseason too, showing great qualities such as physical dominance and instinctive finishing. Colombo has shown that he has a complete repertoire as a centre-forward, and the club have big plans.
According to Calciomercato.com, Serie B side Pescara asked about the possibility of signing the teenager on loan back in January, but the idea was rejected immediately as Milan want to keep him in and around the first team for the foreseeable future, a clear sign they believe he is ready.
