Vincenzo Montella had said that if it was up to him, he would buy back Pasalic from Chelsea. The Blues believe in his potential, this is why they only wanted to give him out on a dry loan.
The 21-year-old had spent last season on loan in the Ligue 1 with Monaco and he was at Elche in La Liga the year before that. Once his loan ends with the Rossoneri (in June 2017), Milan will have the possibility the equal any offers that Chelsea receive for the player but in the end, it will all depend on Antonio Conte. He had previously stated that he does not want to lose the player as he likes him a lot.
Pasalic made his Serie A debut with Milan last weekend as he came on as a substitute and he impressed many people. He combines speed and strength very well as he has the tools to succeed.
