The idea of a sensational return to AC Milan for Krzysztof Piatek is apparently doing the rounds in Germany, according to a report.
Despite links with a number of clubs in England, Hertha eventually won the race for the Pole’s signature. The German capital club announced the capture of Piatek, and it is believed the fee is either €22m plus bonuses or €27m.
The 24-year-old had fallen out of favour under Rossoneri head coach Stefano Pioli, who preferred using a strike partnership of Rafael Leao and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but Piatek has netted just once in seven games for the Bundesliga side since joining.
According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanNews) – who cite sources in Germany – there is talk of the possible return of Piatek to Milan.
The former Rossoneri striker has not exploded at Hertha Berlin, but Rangnick has obtained discreet reports from his men regarding the Pole.
As unlikely as the situation seems, it backs up a report from il Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday that said the same thing in that Piatek could be a welcome player for either Rangnick or his alternative Luciano Spalletti to work with. The paper did not specify, but a possible loan or activation of a secret clause in the contract may be the answer.
