Tuttosport: Primavera product could become Milan’s answer to Inter’s Barella – his value rockets

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could be left with a dilemma regarding the future of Tommaso Pobega as the midfielder continues to impress, a report claims.

Pobega was allowed to leave Milan on loan during the most recent summer window, joining Spezia following the arrival of Sandro Tonali in order to get more consistent playing time.

Spezia have an option to buy as part of the loan deal, but the Rossoneri have a subsequent buy-back that they can activate immediately, which would result in the former getting a small ‘development fee’ of sorts.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive and MilanNews) writes today that Leicester City, Leeds United and Eintracht Frankfurt are all interested in signing the 21-year-old.

While Pobega may be tempted by opportunities abroad, his fate seems to be already written as Milan do not intend to listen to any offers – instead they will bring him back to base at the end of the season.

Pobega, as written by the Turin-based newspaper, could become the Rossoneri’s answer to Nicolo Barella; i.e. an explosive presence in midfield ready to be launched in the first team. Furthermore, his return to the squad would also be useful for the UEFA squad lists as he came through the Primavera.

Thanks to his excellent performances, the value of the young midfielder has risen to €10-12million, but the management do not intend to let him leave.
