ML: Plizzari and Pobega – Milan already have the future stars of the club

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan’s future is looking bright, given the many promising talents they currently own. Furthermore, as the next project will be based on players under the age of 24-25, they could come in handy. 

The intention of CEO Ivan Gazidis, therefore, isn’t to make large investments in experienced players. Instead, he will put a lot of focus on the model that RB Leipzig have done so well with in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

As a result of this, there will be some movement on the transfer market. In particular, Milan will evaluate the permanence of two talents that were raised at Milanello, as highlights this afternoon.

The first is Alessandro Plizzari, who is considered the heir to Gigio Donnarumma. A few years ago, former Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi dubbed him ‘the new Donnarumma’, and as the latter is set to leave, now is the time.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan at Livorno, earning praise from various outlets. Furthermore, he has been a key player in Italy’s youth national teams over the years, gaining a lot of experience at a young age. 2021/22 could be his season.

The second is Tommaso Pobega, who is currently on loan at Serie B side Pordenone. Sitting in fourth place, the midfielder has been a key player for the team, ready to make the big leap to the top tier.

The 20-year-old is considered a great player with an impressive tactical maturity for his age. He reminds us a bit of Fiorentina’s Gaetano Castrovilli, who has been a smashing success in his first Serie A season.

In the new Milan, he could take the place of Giacomo Bonaventura, with Milan ready to take advantage of their players that have grown while out on loan.
