Official: AC Milan confirm left-back starlet has joined Perugia on loan

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have officially announced the departure of Primavera star Andrea Bozzolan on a season-long loan. The youngster will be trying his luck with Serie C side Perugia. 

Bozzolan has been an important player for the Primavera side over the last couple of seasons. From his left-back position, he likes to drive forward with the ball and some would say that he’s similar to Theo Hernandez.

When Stefano Pioli announced his squad for the pre-season tour in the US, Bozzolan’s name was surprisingly missing. However, it all makes perfect sense now as Milan have confirmed that the 19-year-old has joined Perugia on a season-long loan.

It’s a good opportunity for Bozzolan to continue his growth and gain some experience. He’s a very talented player and Milan believe that he could become a very good player, but it will take some time. A loan move, therefore, is the perfect solution for all parties.

  1. Good luck.

    Although a loan probably means his career is going to stall.

    Still I’m sure an agent got commission.

    And the media got to write a story.

    And fans get to play fantasy football.

    1. You think anyone made any effort with this loan?

      Loans are not about developing players, or at least if they were we’ve had less than a 1% success rate.

      They seem to be mostly about clubs having too many players and not knowing what to do with them. A bit like when you go to the supermarket and you buy too much stuff and then you get to the check out and you just start randomly leaving stuff near the cashiers that’s nowhere near where it’s supposed to be.

      And for many of these young players they could well end up working on supermarkets restocking all the useless crap that people dumped at the cashiers.

        1. If they are, how come they never seem to work?

          Surely if clubs really took seriously player development they wouldn’t accept a system that produces less than a 1% return (from the cream of the best players at that age group)?

          Calabria is the only Milan youth team product to make it and he never went on loan.

          Nobody else has made it. And whenever we’ve sent players on loan we’ve never heard from them again.

          What do they say about insanity is doing same thing over again?

          1. Ever heard of Pobega? Or Colombo. They were loaned out a few times and they’re in the squad. I remember Suso was loaned out to Genoa before returning to Milan and earning the RW starter spot for years.

    1. Maybe he’ll play for inter one day and join the other ex-Milan players who ended up outplaying us in the semi-finals….

  2. he would be a good back up for theo. He was top of the assists chart last season. He’d get playing time too.
    I guess we’ll bring in some 5m foreigner.

    Remember Kerkez?

  3. One of the ways in which EPL clubs have developed players over the years is to send them to the Championship or other leagues. Bozzolan will not benefit from playing in Serie C, he should have been offered to a Championship club or a club in Scotland. Italian clubs are still stuck in their old mind-set. Pathetic and short-sighted.
