In January of 2017, AC Milan brought in Gerard Deulofeu from Everton on a six-month loan. The Spaniard was successful with the Rossoneri but in the end, he returned to England and that was that.
The fast winger quickly became a fan favourite at Milan and helped the team get several wins. The most memorable one is probably the one against Bologna, when the Rossoneri were down to nine men and Deulofeu brilliantly assisted the winner.
Since his spell with the club, he has been with Barcelona, Watford and Udinese. This season he has three goals and one assist for the latter, doing quite well for himself in Serie A. Who knows what could have been if he had stayed at Milan, though.
In an interview with SportWeek, as cited by MilanNews, Deulofeu spoke about his time at the club and stated that he has the club with him in his heart.
“I was very good at Milan. I felt strong because I was trusted from day one. At Milan you can breathe the air of the big club, it is something you perceive immediately, everywhere, inside and outside Milanello. I carry Milan in my heart, always,” he stated.
