Milan are also thinking about the future and Pietro Pellegri and Eddy Anthony Salcedo Mora from Genoa are targets.

The Rossoneri have signed 10 players for the first team so far but are also keeping an eye on the future of the Diavolo as in addition to the home-grown talents already at Milan, they want to add players from the youth sectors of other clubs.

Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia reported yesterday that Milan have rekindled their interest in 16-year-old striker Pietro Pellegri and 15-year-old midfielder Eddy Anthony Salcedo Mora of Genoa.

And now Milannews.it is claiming that contacts between Milan and President Enrico Preziosi are frequent. The teen striker and midfielder were both close to Inter but the deal didn’t materialize and Juventus are also interested in Pellegri, who made his Serie A debut back in December 2016.

Talks are ongoing, the main target is The U16 Italy man Pellegri and the idea is to have him on both Rino Gattuso’s Primavera and the first team. More updates could arrive in the next few days.

Are we trying to copy what Chelsea does? Buying as many youth players as possible and see how they turn out either in our team or on loan. I won’t object but that requires stable finances and lots of scouting, both to find the players and to keep track of them. If we can do that, it will help us build good relations with feeder clubs.

Actually, I do like this move. Better to get them young and turn them red and black for the rest of their life. Errr… sorry, sounds a little creepy probably.

Hope something concrete comes out of it.

Good move I think, in this football world where the transfer fee increasing amazingly LOL investing to the youth beside build our first team can bring us some good (I mean money LOL). Seriously, I agree with this kind of strategy especially if we have great scout

The club just has to spend 50 Euro per season for buying Football Manager..it saves lots of money for scouting.

We need a left winger. Niang and Borini are not good enough for starting 11.

Inter was rumored to have tabled a bid that could rise up to 60m for these two, which is absurd. I don’t know if they came to their senses or what but that’s just crazy for a 16 year old and a 15 year old.

atalatanta is famous for its yout academy
i could understand 30 for pellegri.as he is already 1.91 mt
but can play as right winger -striker-amc
featured in all youth levely italy national team
sometimes its possible
but i do not know why inter could not finalize the deal

Comment:Do not sell Niang at cheap if you don’t have a good replacement at a reasonable price for him. With the new players on board, he may pick his good form

How about we promote our own youth players. Instead we sell our own and then now we want to buy other youth players. I sense a circus here.
What about Iglio, De Molfetta, Simic and the forgotten Mestalla. I fear Zanellato is not gonna get game time even this season but there are no arrangements for a loan for him being made.

De Molfetta and I assume you mean Mastalli, they are both sold! I also hope that Simic will get done playing time this season!

after Kalinic & Niang staying, i like this kind of transfer, backup who also able to play @ primavera, Pellegri 16yo 1,92m tall & already scored in serie a, he can do just like Plizzari, Cutrone & Zanellato last season, regulary play @ primavera but also ready when coach need backup, we succeed with this method (Gigio, Loca & Cutrone), this season, we already get Przemyslaw Bargiel (polish wonderkid midfielder) hope Pellegri & Salcedo come too…
