From a mysterious object to a San Siro start: The strange case of Halilovic at AC Milan

29 November at 16:30
The long awaited moment is about to arrive. Alen Halilovic si ready to debut at the San Siro with AC Milan. Coach Gattuso tried the player as the right-sided midfielder in a 4-4-2 in training and will do the same today against Dudelange. The manager wants to give Suso a break and, given the disqualification of Castillejo, Halilovic will be given a chance.

The player has always been a protagonist with the Croatian U21 national taem. He has lived almost a double life. He scored goals and assisted with the nubmer ten shirt for his country, but at AC Milan he was almost like a mysterious object, divorced from Gattuso's technical project. Now, even a little surpsiingly, the opportunity arises to take off the annoying label, to demonstrate the talent that made Barcelona fall in love with the player a few years ago.

He was the last purchase of Mirabelli, while Leonardo and maldini were never fully convinced by the player and his utility for their projects. This is why the sale in tehe summer is very likely, almost obvious.

However, Halilovic's sale could result in a capital gain for Milan, as the player arrived for free from Hamburg (who will receive 20% from a future ressle). It is not impossible to exclude a departure already in January on loan and in this sense there is interest from Spanish clubs. But all in all, tonight is an opportunity for Alen: to possibly rewrite his story in italy and continue his story with Milan or at least convince the team's interested in his services.
