Independiente inquie about Milan’s Pellegrino


Marco Pellegrino’s first season in Italy has not been a success and he looks set to move on from Milan this summer. The Rossoneri acquired him from Platense for just over €3 million, but the Argentine central defender (with an Italian passport) failed to find space in the Rossoneri squad, making only one appearance against Napoli.

This limited playing time was insufficient for a proper evaluation, so the club and player opted for a loan move. In January, the 22-year-old transferred to Salernitana. There, he found slightly more playing time, but still not much: 10 more appearances, only 5 as a starter, without reaching 550 total minutes played.

Pellegrino now returns to Milan, but the possibility of another departure to find continuity is on the horizon, with the first potential solutions already emerging.

Among the viable options is a return to Argentina. As reported by Relevo, Club Atlético Independiente, an Argentine team from Avellaneda, has requested Pellegrino’s loan from Milan for the next season.

Pellegrino is tied to Milan by a long-term contract, with the expiration date set for June 30, 2028.

This potential move to Independiente could provide Pellegrino with the regular playing time he needs to develop and showcase his abilities. Milan will likely consider this option carefully, as it could benefit both the player’s growth and the club’s long-term plans for him.
