Milan Take Interest in Prolific Tigre Center-Forward

Mateo Retegui is on the radar of multiple Serie A teams, especially Udinese and Milan, thanks to his strong showings with Tigre. He joined them on loan with option to buy from Boca Juniors. He hit the net 19 times last season and recorded 6 goals in 5 appearances in 2023.

His father and agent Carlos spoke with Sportitalia.

“He’s capable with both feet, and very technical considering his height. He likes to handle the ball. I’m not the right person to describe him, but it’s easy to judge him from the videos. He draws inspiration from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco Van Basten, Christian Vieri, and Gabriel Omar Batistuta.”

Retegui senior was quizzed about the Milan rumors.

“A few Italian clubs are after him. His side will surely be willing to talk with those that display the most interest. He’s the top scorer in the nation that recently won the World Cup. He’ll surely be ready to make the jump to Europe if he continues at these levels.”

The Rossoneri fully intend to add a young striker in the summer. The 23-year-old will be an option along with a few other foreign prodigies. On the other hand, it’s not so certain Ibrahimovic will hang his cleats at the end of the season. He’ll continue playing if he avoids big injuries the rest of the way. If he fared well, the management would be open to discussing another extension for a low rate, Corriere dello Sport informs.

Our Take on Milan and Retegui

He’d be a gamble, but they surely need to add a young buck, and he’s more seasoned than other targets. Instead, Ibrahimovic should be considered an extra and not a real option.
