Reports: Milan meet agent of Pellegri to discuss future – Maldini may sign him permanently

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan met with agent Giuseppe Riso at Casa Milan this afternoon to discuss the future of on-loan striker Pietro Pellegri, reports claim.

MilanNews confirms the earlier reports stating that at Casa Milan there was a meeting between the Rossoneri management and Riso, Pietro Pellegri’s agent, to take stock of the future of the Monaco-owned forward.

Offers have arrived for the 21-year-old despite what has been a difficult first half of the season due ti injuries, with Torino and Genoa both expressing an interest in signing him. However, there was also talk of signing him permanently from Monaco by triggering the option to buy as Paolo Maldini believes in him.

Calciomercato.com also report that Milan are considering the idea of signing him for €6m and sending him elsewhere on loan to find some continuous playing time, but there is also the possibility that an agreement is found with Monaco to essentially shift his loan on to another club.

It was a first interlocutory meeting and in the coming weeks there will be more to understand the best course of action.

      What for? We already have two 30+ years old striker who sooner than later will retire and you want another 30+ striker who already pass his prime?

      Then we will have to hire Barbara. Too much drama for us.

    This guy showed nothing since he arived.

      He had almost zero chances…was not bad when playing minutes.
      All depends on the price. But if i was the player i would not sign with big club yet. Better to go where you prefer not to be loaned out everywhere

    I think it is a smart move to buy him and loan him out to another club. He is undeniably a great talent, and with regular playing time (bar injuries), he could very well blossom into a real quality player.

    1. Vero Rossonero says:

      Yes but in the meantime who do we play at CF? We need a young productive CF as soon as this summer to take over from Ibra. So if we spend the money on Pellegri and he goes on loan for a couple of years he’ll come back to the same situation, or will send to the bench the other player we spent time and money on.

      1. Shal says:

        Colombo is coming back.
        Also there’s Rebic who plays as a second AMF when he starts at CF position. It may be the reason why Diaz started the season so good. Strong guy in pair with a fast dribbler is always a great combo used by many teams.
        Also there’s Belotti for free. Even he is 28-29, free is free. And he has experience and character.
