Tuttosport: Milan striker will not leave unless he is assured of playing time

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan striker Lorenzo Colombo is not going to leave the club on loan this summer unless he knows he will get plenty of minutes on the pitch at his new club, a report claims.

As has been reported by Tuttosport (via Milan News), the Italian striker is prepared to remain with the Rossoneri in the 2023/24 campaign rather than go and sit on the bench elsewhere.

He spent last season on loan at Lecce where he impressed, but a new loan move is yet to materialise.

Atalanta and Cagliari have been known admirers of Colombo this summer but the former has got Duvan Zapata, Luis Muriel and now El Bilal-Toure on the books.

Cagliari could be a more realistic option, although they just signed Eldor Shomurodov on loan from AS Roma so there is competition there.

If Colombo does not leave, then Milan cannot make a move for Alejo Veliz from Rosario.

  1. I have big hopes for Colombo
    Hopefully he will grow into a good striker and regular starter as Milan definitely need some italian identity in the club

  2. Good on him.

    Most loanees don’t get played anyway.

    The only player to have really made it at Milan is Calabria who never went out on loan.

    Calabria is a FB though so there’s usually less transfer activity in that part of the pitch (Calabria got his lucky break when Conti got injured….). The problem for strikers is that clubs have to sign at least one new striker each summer and maybe another in January, and there’s not a great deal that Colombo can do – he will be replaced regardless of his performances or the performances of any new signings.

    There’s simply no way a youth player would’ve been given the same chances as Brahim, Origi or even CDK.
