Rosario president lifts lid on future of promising striker linked with Milan

By Isak Möller -

Alejo Veliz is one among many other young talents on AC Milan’s radar and the Rossoneri are reportedly considering making a move for the striker. However, Rosario Central’s president has now played down the rumours. 

As was reported by MilanNews just yesterday, 19-year-old striker Alejo Veliz has caught the attention of Milan, having scored 11 in 22 league games for Rosario Central this season. In the event of Lorenzo Colombo’s departure, the interest could turn into a concrete attempt.

In a recent interview, as cited by our colleagues at, Rosario Central president Gonzalo Luis Belloso shared his thoughts on the future of Veliz. He stated that they don’t need to sell him right now.

“Gino’s [Infantino] transfer to Fiorentina gives us some breathing room and improves our economic situation, filling our coffers until next year. And that is why, now, our intention is to keep Alejo Véliz until December,” he stated.

As said, a lot will depend on Colombo who has returned from his loan spell at Lecce. It would probably be best for him to go on another loan, rather than being the third choice being Olivier Giroud and Noah Okafor this upcoming season.

  1. Sign him now and let him stay at Rosario until December.
    Send Colombo on loan to a mid to bottom table team
    where hopefully he will have a good enough season to raise his value and then sell him next summer for around 20 mil like Inter did with Pinamonti.

    1. It’s a loan with an obligation to buy. He hit 13 goals for Empoli a few seasons ago, that’s why his value is high.

      1. It Was a loan last summer.
        Inter received 20 mil from Sassuolo this summer for Pinamonti.
        Also, that is why i said send Colombo on loan where hopefully he can have a good season so his value can go up just like Pinamonti’s which will allow Milan to cash in on a primavera player.

      That’s what plenty of sides do with promising S American talents and personally I think its a smart decision. If we don’t desperately need him, then another 6 months getting regular 1st XI action will prob help him and even if he does well and his value skyrocket it doesn’t hurt us as we’ve already signed him 😀

      Question is, do we need him before December in the squad? And that depends on many factors if we are offloading Origi, loaning Colombo or even if Okafor + Pulisic show promise as false 9.

      Ideally Veliz joins in Jan window, learns from Giroud for half a year before the Frenchman bows out gracefully and Veliz leads the line in the 2024/25 season.
