AC Milan promote young prolific striker to senior team to replace Luiz Adriano

18 January at 18:05
AC Milan have just sold Brazilian striker Luiz Adriano to Spartak Moscow and are not going to sign a new front-man to replace the former Shaktar Donetsk man. Calciomercato.com has exclusively learned that AC Milan have decided to promote to senior team one of the brightest stars of their academy: Patrick Cutrone.

The 18-year-old striker netted 14 goals in 25 games last season and has registered an impressive 11 goals in 13 games this term convincing AC Milan to give a chance among the club’s senior members. Cutrone has already begun to train with the senior squad.

The young and prolific striker has recently signed his first professional deal with AC Milan. He has 18 months left in his contract with the rossoneri  but AC Milan are intended to sit around the negotiations table pretty soon to discuss one more contract extension in order to ward off the interest of some European clubs.

After Donnarumma and Locatelli, Cutrone is the third product of AC Milan academy to be promoted to senior level.
