AC Milan could be set to land a nice windfall as the future of Primavera product Matteo Pessina continues to come under scrutiny.
Pessina left Milan in 2017 as a counterpart in the deal which saw Andrea Conti come the other way, and the 23-year-old is now starting to shine having joined Hellas Verona last summer on loan with option to buy.
According to Calciomercato.com‘s Fabrizio Romano, Atalanta naturally do not lose control of the player – who is on loan until 2021 – while a lot depends on the future of Hellas boss Ivan Juric.
Romano adds that Napoli have been watching Pessina for some time, while there has been a lot of talk about Juventus because the player’s profile responds to the typical characteristics of their signings: young, Italian and able to adapt multiple roles.
All of this has alerted Milan, as in Pessina’s contract with Atalanta there is a percentage resale clause in favour of the Rossoneri. Milan are entitled to a percentage between 40-50% of future resale, but interestingly this does mean that Milan theoretically could beat the competition and sign him at half the price.
It is only a theory because to date the club have not taken any steps in this direction.
