AC Milan are ready to welcome their latest summer signing in Pietro Pellegri as he is about to sign from Monaco, reports claim.
After arriving on Monday evening and having passed the medical examinations yesterday, Calciomercato.com writes that the Italian striker went to the Rossoneri’s Casa Milan headquarters to sign his contract. He will then travel to the training ground Milanello, where he will train with his new team-mates this afternoon. MilanNews also confirms this.
The former Genoa starlet arrives from Monaco on a paid loan for €500k with an option to buy set at €6m plus €1m in potential bonuses – therefore a €7.5m operation – plus a percentage of 15% on future resale.
Pellegri has chosen 64 as his shirt number, the same number that he wore at Genoa where he burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old before moving to Ligue 1, where he has had an injury ravaged couple of years.
