Vitiello: Milan’s current thoughts regarding the future of Messias and Pobega

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are currently leaning towards signing Junior Messias permanently and also keeping Tommaso Pobega when he returns from his loan, a journalist has claimed.

Antonio Vitiello of MilanNews spoke on his YouTube channel (via Francesco Nasato) and gave an update on the aforementioned duo, beginning by stating that the Rossoneri are inclined towards buying Messias permanently when his loan expires.

The Brazilian joined from Crotone on deadline day of the last summer transfer window and after some initial physical problems he had a breakout spell, scoring the winner against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. He is on five goals for the season.

Vitiello added that Milan ‘would like to keep Pobega next season’ when his loan deal at Torino expires and not just because of the versatility he provides but also because of the requirements for the squad lists whereby academy products are needed. The midfielder for his part wants to stay and fight for a spot.

  1. What percentage of fans would be surprised if Milan go thru another mercato without buying a right winger? Messias purchase option is around 5.5 mil on top of the 2.5 mil already paid for his loan. The guy has shown nothing that he deserves to play in Serie A, let alone for Milan.

  2. If its true about buying messias i can see four options that can happen 1- we sell salemakers and get Berardi super unlike we do this one 2-buy messias to send him and x of money for Berardi 3- we buy messias and go to next season with him and salemakers 4-we dont sign messias and go for Berardi!

    1. What’s special about Berardi?

      Meanwhile, Messias is more an AM, but Pioli has refused to play him there, because he knows Diaz who plays at RW for Spain cannot cover defensively when the RB goes forward in his game play.

      Berardi is overrated and Jesse Lingard on a free is a better option.

  3. Let’s be honest. We blew it when we had the chance to sign Chiesa. RW would be locked for years to come.

    Don’t waste any extra funds on Messias. Saelemaekers is a good hardworking backup, just need a quality starter now.
