Romano: Loan move to go ahead – Colombo is ‘on the verge of joining Monza’

By Oliver Fisher -

Lorenzo Colombo looks like he will get his loan move after all because he is reportedly ‘on the verge’ of sealing a switch to Monza.

Colombo is currently the third striker in Pioli’s squad and he has been evaluating his performances during the preseason friendly matches both at Milanello and on the tour of the United States, and of course in training.

His future has remained shrouded in mystery though, with a lot of speculation about a potential loan move to get him more consistent playing time which is vital to develop at the age of 21.

An agreement with Monza was in place but was reportedly dependent on another forward arriving, which looked set to be Mehdi Taremi before that deal became up in the air.

However, Fabrizio Romano is now reporting that Colombo is ‘on the verge of joining Monza’. An agreement is set to be completed over a loan move for the talented Italian forward.

We reported earlier in the month that Colombo would like to play continuously even at a club fighting to avoid relegation, because he knows how important it is to get starts.

  1. Milan should cough up the money for Youssef En-Nesyri from Sevilla. They are desperate to sell and I am sure we can get the deal done this late for 20m plus add on bonuses. Smh

    Taremi is 31 and Youssef En-Nesyri is 26. Youssef En-Nesyri has better upside and he is very good with Champions League,Europa league and WC experience. SMH

    1. meh. Better to pick a taget that was properly scouted not a “panic” last minute buy..
      A loan ok, but to cash out just like that.. now wise

  2. If this is true then it could mean Milan caves in to Taremi demands to get it over the line. At this point I’d rather it fell through to be honest. Even though he would be a great signing.

  3. I wonder why nobody has considered putting RLC in as a CF replacement for Giroud. He’s got the height and physicality to do hold up play as a true 9, and his shots on goal are not bad

    1. except that they kind of are. Last game he badly shot a 1vs1 with the goalkeeper. He didn’t struck me as having a good sense for the goal, he scored 15 goals in total since 2014 and I think he was never used a forward

  4. This shows they had no faith in the boy. Only unless he puts up crazy numbers for Monza he ain’t in Milan’s plans for the future
    The thing I like about him is the old school flair for flashy goals kinda like Quags. He has a good long shot and power. But he needs his numbers in this day and age

    1. Pioli wants him to stay, Colombo pushed for the loan himself, he wants more playing time, and it will be good experience for him. Did you not read the article, or any of the previous where Pioli asked him to stay but he pushed for a loan as he wants to be a starter as he was at Lecce. It will help him prepare for when Giroud retires as well. Then we have someone to come in.

      1. he was not a starter in Lecce. he did less than 1600 minutes..
        It be better to train with the gropu and learn from giroud and get to know the system but like IKW dude said.. They dont have him in their plans, unless he properly explodes…

      2. Maybe I should have clarified. I meant they as in management. Not Pioli per se.
        Plus I could see why Colombo would go, he’d definitely be second fiddle at best. And he’s looking across his shoulders and seeing Okafor (who they just signed …another lack of confidence in him) coming in to replace Giroud in games and not him. So I could see why he wants to go. Pioli can admire him but he also needs to put actions to his words and play him.

    2. Maybe Colombo wants to explore the options he has, as he already realized he won’t play him much. Just sad man. Hope it doesn’t happen to Camarda.

  5. This is actually a nice way of doing business. Galliani was hopeful that the Taermi deal would go through in order to get Colombo. But since that deal fell off, he’d be also looking for someone late in the window. Instead by letting Colombo go to Monza, the relations between the clubs would not be soured and we’d be doing them a big favour. If someone does well at Monza by next year we’ll use that as a basis to get ahead of other clubs as we’ve been kind to them (and knowing Galliano’s personality
