Milan Open to Letting Two More Players Leave in January

Highly-rated youngster Luka Romero could reportedly leave Milan in January on loan to gain experience. According to Calciomercato, the Argentine winger is one of the two first-team players that could wave goodbye to San Siro in the winter.

The other is Mattia Caldara. The injury-prone center-back joined Milan from Juventus in 2018 as part of a deal that sent Leonardo Bonucci back to Turin. However, his career at Rossoneri has never taken off. He spent the last three seasons on loans at Atalanta, Venezia, and Spezia.

After failing to land another temporary switch, Caldara has stayed at Milan. But since his contract runs out next summer, Stefano Pioli is willing to let his outcast leave permanently at the halfway point of the season. 

There may still be a glimmer of hope for the Italian to make a late impact now that Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori have become prone to errors. But that idea looks rather far-fetched. 

On the other hand, Romero could be allowed to leave on loan. The prodigious forward has found his first-team opportunities at a premium since swapping Lazio for Milan in the summer transfer window.

Despite delivering some promising performances in the warm-up fixtures, the 18-year-old has started the new Serie A season behind Rafael Leao, Christian Pulisic, Noah Okafor, and Samuel Chukwueze in the pecking order. 

Milan won’t oppose Romero’s move on loan. Aware of his young age and desire to play, Rossoneri grasp the significance of regular first-team football.
