Davide Calabria and Manuel Locatelli have written emotional messages to Patrick Cutrone, who left Milan today.
The Rossoneri said goodbye to one of the most beloved players in the squad, as Patrick Cutrone signed a four-year contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers, reportedly joining the Premier League outfit for €18m plus €4m of bonuses.
Cutrone grew up in the Youth Sector of Milan and was a close friend of Manuel Locatelli, who last summer, like Patrick left the club on a permanent basis, and of Davide Calabria, who will soon sign a contract extension.
“It’ll be strange, so very strange, after all these years not to be in the same dressing room, wearing the same shirt, not having you constantly around at Milanello. But that is football. That is life,” Calabria wrote on Instagram. “You already know everything I think and what you need to do. It won’t be easy, but with your determination, you’ll succeed. I wish you the best, my friend, I’ll miss you.”

Sarà strano, stranissimo dopo tanti anni, non vivere lo stesso spogliatoio, non indossare la stessa maglia, non averti più tra i piedi a Milanello. Ma è il calcio. È la vita. Sai già tutto ciò che penso e sai già cosa dovrai fare, non sarà facile ma con la tua grinta ci riuscirai. Ti auguro il meglio amico mio, mi mancherai ❤️ @patrickcutrone63
Locatelli posted a message of his own: “Brother, I still can’t believe it, but this is the reality. From Esordienti B to the First Team, a story to tell that the children who are chasing the same dreams we had. That dream that after eight years we could look each other in the eye and say, we did it.
“You embodied ‘Milanismo’ to perfection. I would like to write you many things, but for the moment I wish you the best because you deserve it for the person you are. Life confronts us with choices and we must take them. I hope for you that this is the right path. I am convinced that with your determination and hunger that only you have, that you’ll give your all and prove how much you’re worth in England too.
“Distance can never be a problem for us, and we’ve already proved that. I can only say that I’ll always be here for you. Good luck, my brother.”
