Marko Lazetić has officially joined Milan and he’ll be wearing the #22 jersey.
The Rossoneri cut short the loan of the hugely-disappointing Pietro Pellegri, and they decided to invest in another young striker: 18-year-old Serbian Marko Lazetić.
The deal has been in place for a few days now – believed to be €4m plus €1m bonuses, and Lazetić already underwent the medical check-ups with the club earlier this week. However, the official statement arrived today.
“Milan announces that Marko Lazetić has joined the Rossoneri from Crvena zvezda on a permanent deal. The Serbian striker has signed a contract with the Club lasting until 30 June 2026.
“Born in Belgrade, Serbia, on January 22 2004, Marko came through the Crvena zvezda youth ranks before making his first-team debut in November 2020. He was then loaned to Grafičar, for whom he scored four goals in 14 appearances. Having returned to Crvena zvezda in the summer of 2021, this season has seen him find the net once in 16 matches.
“Lazetić will wear the number 22 shirt.” Marko will most likely be included in the squad for the Derby della Madonnina which comes right after the break – next Saturday.
