Would Patrick Cutrone really ever leave Milan? Would the club ever sell him?
Cutrone’s agent, Donato Orgnoni, said yesterday that there had been interest from at least one German club and from Spain, but that Cutrone’s always been focused on doing his best at Milan, even with all the talk about new strikers, saying:
We’ve had many shows of interest from foreign teams, with enquiries from Spain and one from Germany, but Patrick wants to keep doing well for Milan.
We expect Cutrone to have the same chances in 2019 that he had last year. After that, it’ll be up to him to do well on the field with his performances, goals and, possibly, awards.
There’s a lot of talk of new strikers, but we never talk about them. We know that the club must work to improve the team, but we’ve never been afraid, not even when Higuain arrived. He’s grown a lot working alongside Higuain. Pipita remains one of the best strikers in the world.
His bad run aside, Gonzalo is a great player and Patrick is trying to steal as many things from him as possible. They work very well together. Patrick is aware of Pipita’s quality and wants to learn from him.
Milan already have the next great Italy striker on their roster, and so it’s never made a ton of sense to be pursuing a lot of alternatives at striker, even if they might be a temporary upgrade. Cutrone is the future of Milan, is already playing great, and he isn’t going anywhere. Milan shouldn’t try to bring in another striker, as this year has proven that Cutrone’s time to shine has already arrived.
Here’s hoping that Leonardo and the management at Milan do what they can to keep Cutrone happy and playing well.
