MN: Milan open to letting young striker leave on loan in January after Mandzukic’s arrival

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to listen to loan offers for Lorenzo Colombo after the arrival of Mario Mandzukic, according to a report.

Mandzukic’s arrival was confirmed yesterday as the striker signed a deal until the end of the season with the option for it to be extended until summer 2022.

This means that if Colombo was perhaps the fourth choice centre-forward before (behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic) he now seems to be another place lower in the pecking order now.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, the Rossoneri management have opened to the idea of ​​letting Lorenzo Colombo leave on loan. The 18-year-old has – to date – collected nine appearances across Serie A and the Europa League, scoring once.

The report confirms that the space for Colombo has been reduced even more by the arrival of Mandzukic, which is why Milan are thinking seriously about letting him leave on loan to give him experience. The young striker has the strong interest of several Serie B clubs.
