Tommaso Pobega returned to AC Milan this summer hoping to carve out a role under Stefano Pioli, and he may well get his wish.
Pobega had an excellent season on loan with Ivan Juric’s Torino during which he became a key part of their plans and was used in a number of different positions, however there were questions about what his future might hold after his loan ended.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the early impressions from preseason are good as head coach Stefano Pioli likes the player, especially for the physical qualities that he has shown.
Moreover, the paper adds that Pioli would like to offer him a prominent place and not just a role on the fringes of the squad. In addition, the club want to focus a lot on the Italy international and they are actually willing to extend his deal until 2027.
