Pietro Pellegri is closing in on a move to AC Milan as an agreement has been reached with Monaco over the transfer. At the beginning of next week, he’s expected in the city to undergo his medical for the club.
The 20-year-old will act as the alternative to Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season. And for the future, he could be the first-choice striker. Milan’s plan for his development is clear, as highlighted by Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews).
Their idea is to give Pellegri a role that won’t come with a lot of responsibility, but rather with the idea of growing without pressure. The striker has trained at full speed in pre-season and is in good condition, so there are no doubts on that front.
Milan, simply put, want to enhance his qualities but won’t force the development. Pellegri’s has huge potential and if everything goes well, he could be the Rossoneri’s striker for many years to come.
