Lollo Colombo is once again owned by Milan, as the Rossoneri activated their buy-back clause.

The 21-year-old spent the last season on loan at Lecce, playing 34 games in all competitions and scoring 6 goals – including the goal that ended up keeping Lecce in Serie A on Matchday 37.

Lecce had a buy-out option for Colombo, which they used. But as confirmed by Stefano Trinchera, the Director of Sport of Lecce, the Rossoneri communicated to them that they are using their buy-back clause for the striker.

According to Antonio Vitiello of, Lecce paid €2.5m to get Colombo, and Milan are bringing him back for €3m. It remains to be seen what the plans are for Lollo for next season.
