AC Milan decided to reject several loan offers for Lorenzo Colombo over the summer and are happy with their decision, a report claims.
According to Fabrizio Romano’s latest for Calciomercato.com, Colombo has Milan’s full confidence and the management had a very clear plan during the summer when the rumours about a new striker being signed to deputise Ibrahimovic were swirling.
Milan consider Colombo a talent that is growing, and they turned down loan offers from numerous clubs as they see him as a useful member of Pioli’s squad to give depth to the attacking department.
The way he entered the field against Napoli has once again convinced Stefano Pioli and all his staff, as he came on and showed energy and physicality, even seeing a shot saved by Meret that would have been a glorious moment.
An excellent worth ethic and a desire to grow have made the management believe that they have made the right call by keeping Colombo, and Ibrahimovic’s injury just reinforces it.
Romano’s report ends with the following passage: “A sentence filters through the Rossoneri management: if a foreign top club had had a 2002 like Colombo in the first team, what would we talk about? Perhaps an expensive talent from South America or Portugal, for example.”
