GoS: Milan midfielder’s loan market


The midfield is arguably the most crucial part of Stefano Pioli’s tactical approach at AC Milan, and management are pushing to improve the department ahead of 2022-23.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports how Pioli has shown a willingness to adapt from a 4-2-3-1 to a 4-1-4-1 or a 4-3-3 at times when the situation calls for it , and in the victory Napoli gave him encouraging signs like numerical superiority in the heart of the battle.

However, there will be some movement in this area ahead of next season and following Franck Kessie’s exit – which now looks certain – the situation around Tiemoue Bakayoko will need to be monitored as he has struggled for minutes due to injury issues and coaching choices.

The Frenchman arrived from Chelsea on a two-year loan, but if his situation doesn’t improve in the final two months of the season, Milan could part ways with him a year earlier than expected.

Yacine Adli was bought last summer for 10 M€ by Bordeaux but maintained his last season. His age (21) and his technical characteristics (he can play both as a playmaker and as a mezzala) mean that Pioli is delighted to welcome him and will count on him.

Finally, it will be necessary to understand what is happening with Tommaso Pobega and although some sources have claimed that he will certainly return from his loan spell at Torino to say so, it remains a complicated situation with a lot of variables.

The certainty, however, is that the 22-year-old is having a very positive season with the Granata, where he has grown a lot tactically playing both in a double pivot and more forward. As there is no purchase option in his loan, Pobega will then return to Milanello and then the parties will cool down.
