GdS: Milan’s ‘mini Messi’ needs playing time – the three loan possibilities

By Ben Dixon -

After his arrival in the summer of 2023, Luka Romero hasn’t immediately hit the ground running like AC Milan had hoped he would, and his game time has been limited. As a result, a loan move away from the club is seen as the best option for him to continue his development.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Argentine is set to leave Milan on loan in the January mercato after a sub-par first six months.

Attached with his nickname of ‘mini Messi’, there is a weight of expectation that he hasn’t shown so far, but given the seniors above him in selection choices, this is somewhat expected.

There are currently three parties leading the chase for his signature this month. Firstly, a return to Argentina, where Romero’s grandfather confirmed that contact had occurred between the Rossoneri and Boca Juniors.

Then, there is Como, who, under the stewardship of Cesc Fabregas, are second in Serie B, and the former Spanish midfielder is a huge fan of Romero. Finally, there is Almeria, who sit bottom of La Liga.

  1. He could probably due with a season or two in the lower leagues. He needs to play against men, as he appeared very weak in his last outing. I don’t understand why Milan are dragging their feet on a reserves team. If Milan are committed to buy young and developing they need a place to play against adults with regularity. That reserve squad would also give Milan more control over a players development instead of relying on the abilities of some b tier club.

    1. need to be careful, in every new-Messi there also new-Bojan, kid must lower his ego to play in lower league (loan) he left Lazio for Milan for more playing time
