A lot of AC Milan’s January window will depend on the sales that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are able to conclude, and Pietro Pellegri could reportedly depart.
Calciomercato.com reports how Pellegri was plagued by injury problems in the first half of the season meaning he has failed to play consistently or even score a goal in the six appearances he has collected. The solution could be an early termination of his season-long loan in order to go elsewhere, with Torino and Genoa having been informed about his situation.
However, there is an obstacle: Pellegri is in fact at Milan on a paid loan with an option to buy. The loan fee is €1m and the option to buy is €6m, and the only way that the Rossoneri can therefore move him on in January is to pay the option and permanently sign him before loaning him back out.
It seems a complicated solution at the moment, but the management are working at Casa Milan to try and find the right solutions.
