AC Milan are seriously considering the idea of re-signing midfielder Matteo Pessina three years after he was allowed to leave, a report claims.
As MilanLive notes, Pessina was at Milan until 2017 but was sent to Atalanta as part of a the deal that saw right-back Andrea Conti come the other way, and this season the midfielder has impressed out on loan at Hellas Verona.
The report adds that his exploits are being followed and greatly appreciated by Ralf Rangnick – the probable new Milan boss – while a specific clause may favour Pessina’s return to Milan.
In fact, in the agreement to sell to Atalanta it was established that the Rossoneri would be entitled to 50% of the proceeds of the future resale, meaning they would be able to in theory sign him for half the cost of any other interested clubs.
The player’s value is currently around €12-14million. Roma are also on the trail of Pessina, but if Milan decided to accelerate concretely they would undoubtedly be ahead of the competition.
Considering the imminent farewell of Giacomo Bonaventura, it could well be that Pessina is targeted to restore some depth, the report concludes.
