CorSport: Milan pleased with Adli’s development on loan – the idea for his role

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are very happy with the development that Yacine Adli is enjoying in his season on loan at Bordeaux, and he will not be typecast into one role next season.

On deadline day night of the summer window, Milan announced the signing of Adli from Bordeaux. The Frenchman signed a five-year contract with the Rossoneri and it was agreed that Adli would be sent back to the Ligue 1 side on loan for this season.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan are looking for reinforcements for the midfield in view of next season but they are also factoring in the arrival of Adli, who is doing very well in France and could guarantee various solutions to Pioli.

The former PSG man could play as part of the double pivot or in a three-man midfield but also in the attack, given he has shown he can be effective when deployed behind the strikers. The 21-year-old is showing Milan that they already have a reinforcement ready without having to make a major signing for the department.

In the minds of the management, Adli and Brahim Diaz would be the two attacking midfielders, while in the engine room Renato Sanches and Tommaso Pobega (along with Tonali, Bennacer and Bakayoko) could be enough.

    1. He will most likely be sold, but you keep harrasing a guy that gives his best every time. He played in double pivot against Juventus, why don’t you talk about that match? Oh yeah, he wasn’t bad so you won’t mention it. Literally plays out of his position in almost every match and still does as good as some players in Milan people are talking about like they are Messi. Ridiculous.

    2. Show some respect for Krunic!

      – He’s a Milan fans since childhood
      – He’s one of the most hardworker player in Milan right now.
      – He never asked for high salary nor he complain about his playing time
      – Every time he played, he always gives 110%

      Sure his contribution aren’t as shiny as Leao, Theo, Tonali, Ibra, Saele, Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, or Mike. But everyone in Milan respect him!
