Lorenzo Colombo could still leave AC Milan this summer as several clubs have expressed their interest. More importantly, however, the player himself has asked to leave the Rossoneri on a loan deal.
Colombo has featured in all of Milan’s games this pre-season and although he hasn’t found the back of the net, excluding two converted penalties in two shoot-outs, he has impressed Stefano Pioli. In fact, the latter would like to keep the youngster.
According to today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport, as cited by SempreMilan.it, Colombo has other ideas. He would like to move on loan just like last season, keen on getting playing time rather than being the third choice for Milan.
It remains to be seen how Milan will respond to this. It’s possible that Pioli could speak to the player and provide him with more guarantees, or they could decide to grant his wish and start looking for another striker on the market.
