In the friendly game against Monza, which Milan won by four goals to one, Lorenzo Colombo managed to get on the scoresheet with a lovely curling effort. A taste of what we might see from him this season.
Yes, because the youngster is expected to remain with the first team as a backup for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. According to Peppe Di Stefano of Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews.it, the Rossoneri have scrapped the idea of signing a striker.
Ibrahimovic, unless he’s injured or suspended, will always play and for this reason, a deputy won’t arrive from the transfer market. Both Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao, who usually play on the left-wing, could be a solution up front if the Swede is out.
However, as the report continues, Milan will focus a lot on Colombo. There was recently contact with his agent, who was reassured that his client won’t leave this summer. The 18-year-old has excellent physicality and could come in handy this season.
