CM: Talks scheduled with Monaco over discount as Pellegri convinces Milan – the plan for his future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s first signing of the January window is set to be a permanent deal for a player currently on loan, namely striker Pietro Pellegri, according to a report.

According to, Milan are accelerating to buy Pellegri outright and a conference call is scheduled between Paolo Maldini and Monaco this afternoon to try to close the deal. Milan are aiming to secure a discount on the option to buy of €6m plus €1m in bonuses agreed last summer.

Despite an unfortunate start to the season where injury problems have continued to plague him, Pellegri has convinced Milan and that is why they are stepping up attempts to secure him on a permanent deal.

There is a plan in mind too: the Rossoneri will buy him outright and then they will loan him to Torino where he will grow and develop further. The Granata overtook Genoa by reaching a total agreement yesterday with Milan over a six-month loan.

Further updates are expected in the evening regarding the operation, which is sure to divide opinion among the fan base.

  1. They got my approval if they can manage to sell him for more money than they him for. I’m 100% confident that he will not be a part of the Milan team even if they did actually buy him. He’s just not Milan material. Not good enough.

    But it would be nice for a change if Milan managed to sell someone actually for profit.

  2. We fans have not been able to see what he can offer yet, in training he must be showing something worthy of investment. He is still an Italian u21 international and he is only 20 so there must be something there. If we can get him over the injuries and some solid game time we just might have a bargain deal, worth the chance I think
