Lorenzo Colombo continues to impress while on loan with SPAL in Serie B but his dream remains to forge a career at AC Milan, according to a report.
Colombo was loaned out to the second tier in order to get more consistent playing time in order to assist his development at the age of 19, and so far he has four league goals in nine games. Di Marzio reports that the centre-forward could have remained at Milan as the deputy to Zlatan Ibrahimović, but also saw a loan as the right move.
SPAL president Joe Tacopina pushed for the deal and confirmed that his friendship with Milan’s sporting director Frederic Massara helped get things over the line: “When I called my friend Massara to sign him, he did me a great favour.”
Colombo continues to be decisive as his goals against Pordenone, Monza, Vicenza and Parma helped to earn eight of the ten points won by SPAL. His exploits highlight the potential of the teenager, who – thanks to the trust placed in him by SPAL – hopes to relaunch himself towards the great stage of Milan.
