Talks between AC Milan and Cagliari over a loan deal for Lorenzo Colombo are at an advanced stage but cannot go through until a replacement is sourced, a report claims.
According to what is being reported by TMW, the negotiations between the Sardinian club and the Rossoneri are at an advanced stage, while the discussions ongoing between Cagliari and the player through his entourage are also going well.
Even Milan seem to acknowledge that letting Colombo go out on loan for another season is the best course of action, but the deal hasn’t gone through yet because the management must find a replacement.
In the past season Colombo made 36 appearances across the league and the Coppa Italia with Lecce, scoring 6 goals including a penalty against Monza which sealed their top flight status.
After a preseason campaign in which he netted three goals, another loan spell for the 21-year-old is on the cards so he can get consistent starts and continue to develop.
