TMW: Milan at risk of losing Primavera star El Hilali on a free transfer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will soon have to make a decision on the future of Primavera playmaker Youns El Hilali as his deal expires in a few months, a report claims.

According to a report from TMW, Milan are at risk of losing El Hilali for nothing even though he is one of the brightest players in the Primavera side because his contract expires in June and there is no agreement over a renewal at present.

The 19-year-old Italian-Moroccan has come through various age groups of the youth sector before joining the Primavera permanently in September 2020, having racked up 18 goals and 7 assists in 59 appearances.

He is clearly not judged as being far away from the first team either as he played in the Dubai friendlies against both Arsenal and Liverpool. El Hilali’s current Milan contract expires at the end of the season and it is currently unclear if the club plan to renew him or not, but a decision will clearly have to come sooner rather than later.

  1. It’s not like he has a hope in hell of breaking into the first team. We’ve currently got three in his position (Brahim, Adli and CDK) and the fans, media and probably directors want to replace all of them.

    His best bet is to find a club like Atalanta. Stay there for at least 5 years and then try again with a big club. Same for Maldini. There’s no future for youth players particularly in the attacking third. It’s far too tempting to look busy on the transfer market.

  2. Pioli’s biggest weakness is that he doesn’t give youth team players a chance. He’d rather play nobodies that are cheap (and even then, it takes them a year to earn a shot). His hand should be forced, he should be told that he needs to show more trust in the Primavera. El-Hilali is a wonderful talent. He’s been excellent in the youth UCL. I’d rather see him play than donkey Origi.

    1. Yeah give youth sector more chances. We’ve seen brahim dioz struggling to dribble and touch for ball maybe he should try messi style walking around :D.
