Tuttosport: Milan’s plans for young midfielder could change if Chelsea man arrives

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could still decide to let midfielder Tommaso Pobega leave on loan with two clubs interested in signing him, a report claims.

There has been an abundance of speculation about Pobega’s future as he returned to Milan after a loan spell at Spezia, with suggestions that he could either be sold for a capital gain, loaned out again or kept around to be a fourth choice holding midfielder.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Sampdoria and Cagliari have asked Milan for information about Pobega and whether they would consider letting him leave again. The paper explains that Rossoneri will only let the 22-year-old leave if another midfielder arrives at Milanello.

That is a distinct possibility too given Stefano Pioli may want a more natural player for the double pivot, and the report mentions that Tiemoue Bakayoko of Chelsea remains the leading candidate to come in and complete the defensive midfield department.

    Don’t do this, ruin another Milan products time at this club, we will sell for nothing or loan with option just to bring in some 1 season average players. Pobega has alreay grown and adapted to the 2 man mid in literally a few weeks, imagine how good he will become given a few months. Keep 100%, Don’t loan!

    Wtf? You have a 21 yr old Italian from Primavera with room to develop…cost less in terms of wages and is better than a Napoli reject like Bakayoko. WTF is wrong with Milan and old players?

    I swear all this Pobega news is nonsense I read one article with “credible sources” that Pobega will be sold. The very next article states from “credible sources” Pobega is not for sale.

    The one who should be sold are Krunic and Samu. Not Pobega. But this happens when you do not have a decent coach
