AC Milan have a number of players out on loan, this is a look at the key first team players who are out and could potentially return at the end of the season.
Yacine Adli - Bordeaux
The midfield dream boy for Milanisti, everyone seems to want him back early after watching his bangers from distance. The central midfielder has been tearing up the Ligue 1 despite his Bordeaux side struggling in other aspects. The Frenchman has 1 goal and 6 assists in 19 games thus far and is a crucial part of his side with his pinpoint passing being the standout part of his game.

Jens Petter Hauge - Eintracht Frankfurt
The winger had a lighting start with Frankfurt scoring 2 goals in his first 3 games but has struggled to contribute much since. He then only scored a wild match winner at the 90th minute in the Europa League but has been getting less playing time and then picked up a muscle injury.

Marco Brescianini - AC Monza
It’s been a tough six months for the midfielder, he was immediately thrust into the starting line up at Monza but lost his place after just two matchdays to Andrea Barberis. Brescianini has 5 appearances in Serie B and 1 in the Coppa Italia. A tough spell for the youngster given his potential as the benching at Monza has cost him the call ups to the Italy U21 too.
Tomasso Pobega - Torino
What a fantastic decision by the management to snub Spezia amongst others in favour of Torino. Pobega has grown so much and stunned with the side as he has 4 goals and 1 assist from central midfield with them. He has become a total midfielder with a really good arsenal of strength, pace, shooting and technical ability. He has been a regular starter missing just one game through suspension since he joined.

Mattia Caldara - Venezia
The defender is finally living up to his potential and fitting in a team really well. He is the undisputed starter in his team with 15 starts as they have taken Serie A by storm and caused lots of upsets. Caldara’s stand out performance came against AS Roma where he bagged a goal and an assist in a 3-2 win that was crucial for his side. Milan are rumoured to be considering a return for him but to be honest given how well he is doing, he deserves to finish the season at Venezia where he was finally seemingly found a home.

Lorenzo Colombo - SPAL
I saved the best for last as Colombo has been on fire in Serie B with SPAL and with the Italy U21 side this season. He has been clinical scoring wicked shots and demonstrating his strength. He has 6 goals and 1 assist in 17 games in the league but an additional 1 goal and 2 assists for the Italy U21 side. He is making a massive case to be in the Milan squad next season as he could learn quite a bit for Zlatan and Olivier to further his development given he is just 19 years old.
