Romano: Pobega impressing at Spezia – the formula of his sale and AC Milan’s plan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a plan regarding the future of on-loan midfielder Tommaso Pobega whom they were determined not to lose control of.

According to Fabrizio Romano’s latest for Calciomercato.com, the initial idea of the management was to keep Pobega in Stefano Pioli’s squad, but then Sandro Tonali arrived to make the department even stronger and so the decision to let him leave on loan was made.

The choice was to give Pobega a new deal and send him on loan with an option to buy to Spezia, the right offer among many that arrived as it allows him to gain experience in Serie A.

Pobega has had a good start to the season for the newly-promoted club even scoring against Juventus and Benevento, and Milan knew they could have made a capital gain with his sale but said no.

As Romano adds, Milan actually have a buy-back option built into Pobega’s loan deal so if he impresses he can be brought back to base. The Rossoneri will continue to monitor his progress, knowing they may very well have a player for the future in their grasp.
