Oh, so now Patrick Cutrone’s agent is saying that the Milan striker isn’t going anywhere? That seems rather ironic, don’t you think?

Cutrone’s agent, Giovanni Branchini, said:

Patrick is absolutely concentrated on Milan, hoping to give his contribution for qualification to the Champions League and also the Coppa Italia Final.

These are important objectives and he is well aware of the situation. He respects Gennaro Gattuso’s choices and the quality of his teammates.

His rapport with the Coach is very clear. I want to point out that Patrick grew up in the Rossoneri academy, he feels himself to be a Milan fan and hopes this will always be his jersey.

Patrick knows full well that this is a transitional season that can help him to grow. He never thought about leaving, nor did we suggest such a thing.

The rumours of a deal with another club, especially the stories about Torino, are simply not true. Not only have we not talked to any other clubs, but we have no meetings planned either.

All of this is rather suspicious, given that Cutrone’s agent Donato Orgnoni and the striker’s father reportedly traveled to Spain to visit with officials from Atlético Madrid after Orgnoni refused to confirm that Cutrone’s future at Milan.

So who to believe, Branchini or Orgnoni? Or is this all just a game? And which one is the striker’s agent?

Prepare for a summer of rumors.

On to the links.
