Lorenzo Colombo is practically a new Lecce player, with only the exchange of documents missing.

Today (Monday), Milan begin training ahead of the new season at Milanello, and they will be doing so without Lollo Colombo who once again will be on loan trying to get consistent minutes.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia, the deal to see Colombo joining Lecce is now complete.

The 20-year-old, who scored 6 goals in 34 appearances for SPAL in Serie B last season, will join the newly-promoted side on loan with option to buy. Milan, however, retain a buy-back option on the young striker, who plays for the U21 Italy side.

Colombo is expected soon in Lecce for the medical check-ups and the contract signing. Only the exchange of documents between Milan and Lecce is missing and that will be completed this morning.

So are we trying to get Belotti now? Giroud is our only available ST now. And I think Origi should be vice-Leao and Rebic should be coverted to ST, my guy has strong physique, is of normal height, dangerous in the close range and good with trapping the ball. I was hoping Colombo, thus would have been kept and trained for when Giroud leaves, but I guess now we need another ST. Or maybe Zlatan will stay 1 more year?!
