Milan to Sanction Colombo’s Loan Move to Monza on One Condition

Milan won’t sanction Lorenzo Colombo’s loan move to Monza before tying the youngster down to a new long-term contract. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, via Francesco Nasato, I Rossoneri will give the 21-year-old the go-ahead once he signs on the dotted line. 

Colombo’s current deal at San Siro runs out in 2025. Though it gives Milan enough time to assess the striker’s potential further, they don’t want to risk letting him enter the final year of his contract. It looks like Stefano Pioli sees something special in the towering striker. 

That’s the best way to explain Colombo’s extensive usage in pre-season. However, Pioli wants the Italian prodigy to play regularly and gain experience. Milan let Colombo spend last season on loan at Lecce to get familiar with Serie A. 

Since the left-footed forward impressed at Stadio Via del Mare, Monza would like to have him at the Brianteo this term. Reduced to Dany Mota and Andrea Petagna as the only center-forward options, Raffaele Palladino aims to recruit Colombo.

While it would be a logical move for the homegrown Milan starlet, it’s odd Pioli doesn’t fancy him as Olivier Giroud’s deputy. Pioli’s quest to sign a younger alternative for the 36-year-old veteran is no secret. However, his ongoing search has failed to yield results. 

Milan have received an opportunity to land Fiorentina outcast Luka Jovic, but they decided against taking Fali Ramadani up on his offer. The clock is ticking, so why not give Colombo a chance?
