Relevo: Argentina return on the cards for Milan defender Pellegrino

By Ben Dixon -

The signing of Marco Pellegrino was one done with the future in mind for AC Milan, but it is fair to say he had an underwhelming start to life at the Rossoneri. A report has now claimed he could return to Argentina in the summer.

For Pellegrino, it has been a frustrating season, even if his role was not to be a starter. Whilst he played two games for Milan’s Primavera side, he only managed one appearance for the senior team.

During the injury crisis, Stefano Pioli elected to give the Argentine defender a chance to prove himself against Napoli when Pierre Kalulu came off in 20 minutes due to injury. Unfortunately for the young defender, the same fate awaited him.

After 68 minutes, Pellegrino was taken off the pitch due to an ankle injury, which sidelined the youngster for 19 matches, a fate that contributed to the Rossoneri’s injury problems when he was likely asking for a chance to impress as a result of it, rather than be claimed by it.

Following his return, he spent the second half of the season on loan with Salernitana, who were relegated to Serie B, and another loan move looks possible, according to Relevo journalist Matteo Moretto on his X account.

According to the journalist, Club Atletico Independiente have enquired about the possibility of the central defender arriving on loan for the 2024/25 season, and given there is a desire to add players to the ranks this summer, their request may be granted.

    1. You think Pioli was scouting in Argentina and asked for this guy? It’s amazing that Moncada is never questioned about his many lousy targets and convinced the ownership to give him a promotion and more power last summer.

      1. It is true that management and especially talent scouts must be questioned, many players who are bought become dead wood.

    2. Up until this season, Calafiori was injury prone and had a history of muscle problems so complaining about him not being signed is stupid. Given he stayed fit this season, his injury problems could be down to growining pains. Management weren’t to know that. Stop being wise after the fact. It’s utterly dishonest.

  1. Well that was another worthwhile transfer.

    And every second he spent at the club he blocked a youth player, he distracted, he denied minutes, he stole attention in training, we spent money (however small), we wasted time.
