AC Milan winger Luka Romero has signed for UD Almeria on loan until the end of the 2023-24 campaign, it has been confirmed today.
Romero signed for Milan on a free transfer from Lazio and had a very promising preseason campaign, even scoring a goal against Real Madrid, but he has struggled since the season started.
With just 156 minutes on the pitch across all competitions, a loan move was reported as being a possibility as soon as the January window opened and now one has come to fruition.
On their official website, Almeria have confirmed that Romero has become their second signing in January, joining on a loan deal until the end of the current season.
It is a return to Spain for the teenager given he played in the lower age groups of Real Mallorca from 2012 to 2022 before he ended up becoming a Lazio player.
Today Romero signed his contract as an Almeria player – the club who are bottom of LaLiga – and has completed his first training session with his new team-mates.
The Rossoneri clearly believe in him, hence why they said no to Boca Juniors who wanted a longer loan and an option to buy because they wanted a dry loan.
