Tuttosport: ‘He will certainly leave’ – Milan stance clear as interest in Romero rises

By Ben Dixon -

Reports from this morning suggest that Luka Romero could leave the club in the summer mercato just 12 months after joining AC Milan for free. 

When he arrived at Milan, it was clear to see the Argentine winger possessed talent, and perhaps, there could have been a route to senior football. However, due to the recruitment of Noah Okafor, Christian Pulisic, and Samuel Chukwueze, his chances slimmed quickly, and he was sent on loan to La Liga club, Almeria.

Tuttosport (via Milan News) reports that in his loan spell, Romero convinced several clubs that he possesses the quality to play at a top level, even if Almeria were relegated this season. Therefore, the Rossoneri have a fantastic chance to cash in on the Argentine.

It has been reported that he will ‘certainly leave’ in the mercato, whether that is because of a loan with an option to buy, or a straight sale. Regardless of the choice, though, it is a fantastic example of capital gain.

In six months, the Diavolo raised a player a little further, before loaning him out, and now, seeking a sale, all when they brought him to the club on a free transfer in the previous summer mercato. A fantastic piece of business, and one that could be done more in the future, following the success of Romero.

  1. It’s not great business at all, paid a decent sign on and agent bonus and we won’t get much from a sale for him, mid- to lower-table La Liga clubs don’t exactly spend big. Not going to take a loss likely but hardly taking in the big bucks!

  2. I don’t know why but reading

    “A fantastic piece of business..”

    kinda hits me in the feel.

    I know football is largely a business nowadays and profit is the name of the game. However, personally, it’s just sad that we’re acquiring players, don’t give him the fair chance, essentially farming him to another club and then celebrating the profits made by selling them. Of course it takes two to tango, and Romero put his signature down to continue his career with us, but with the benefit of the hindsight, does he regret it?

    This is not a jab towards the management, but towards the direction of footballing world in general.

  3. Where’s that took that was arguing with me about him being a future player for Milan? It was clear that he was signed for future profit and not as a realistic signing for the team

  4. I don’t see a future of him with Milan actually. But he definitely has potentials as a player.

    However, as far as this year’s mercato goes, I hope we don’t buy players unnecessarily, but are only focused on getting the players that we need. This is not time to be doing Lazetic, Romero, Vranxx mercato gamble.
