AC Milan is set to conclude the January transfer window by loaning out two promising young talents, Marco Pellegrino and Chaka Traoré, in separate deals.
Marco Pellegrino, a center-back, is joining Salernitana on loan. However, finalizing the deal required intervention from FIFA due to a clerical error. Pellegrino was mistakenly believed to have played for two teams this season, AC Milan and Platense, in the Transfer Matching System (TMS). This error was rectified after Serie A identified the issue, collaborated with FIGC, FIFA, and the local federation, and adjusted the end date of the Argentinian campaign. Pellegrino, who featured once for AC Milan before sustaining a heel fracture, expressed his readiness for the new challenge before departing from Milan.
In another loan move, Chaka Traoré is in advanced discussions to join Palermo with an option to buy set at €10 million. Traoré, who has made four appearances for AC Milan and contributed two goals, is poised to bolster Palermo’s offensive options.
These loan deals signify AC Milan’s commitment to providing valuable playing opportunities for their young talents to gain experience and development in competitive environments.
