Mattia Caldara has returned to Atalanta, after two years at Milan in which he never played in Serie A.
Caldara arrived to Milan in the summer of 2018 in a direct exchange with Leonardo Bonucci. However, his career with the Rossoneri never took off as he suffered two unfortunate long-term injuries.
Today, Mattia made his return to Atalanta, where he was the Captain before going to Juve and then immediately to Milan.
“Milan announces the agreement for the player Mattia Caldara to join Atalanta on a 18-month loan deal with right to buy. Milan wishes Mattia the best of luck in his future sporting career,” a statement on the website of the Diavolo reads. Contrary to some reports, there is no buy-back clause.
Caldara played just twice for Milan, never in Serie A. He wrote on his Instagram account today: “Thanks Milan, thanks no matter how. But it was time to go home.”
