Tommaso Pobega is set to sign a contract renewal with AC Milan this summer according to MilanLive. Pobega is under contract with Milan till 2025. However, AC Milan and Pobega’s representatives have reached an agreement to extend his contract by two years. This means Pobega will remain at San Siro till 2027. This contract renewal also comes with a significant pay rise for Tommaso Pobega.
Pobega spent two positive seasons in the Serie A on loan spells. His first loan spell was with Spezia and the second loan spell was with Torino. This season, Milan are testing him to see if he can add the much-needed quality and depth to the squad. Milan have had a good transfer window this year. They signed the services of former Liverpool forward Divock Origi on a free transfer. Moreover, they have also managed to sign fullback Allesandro Florenzi from Roma this summer.
Pobega to become a part of Milan’s first team.
This contract extension confirms that Pioli sees Pobega as the future midfield star of Milan. Pobega will wear the number 32 jersey this season. Moreover, he will replace Frank Kessie in the midfield who departed for Barcelona this season. Pobega is a budding player who needs exposure at the highest level this year to become a star player. It is expected that he will be handed a lot of game time this summer. But, he is set to miss a few friendlies this summer owing to an injury. Pobega is suffering from muscle strain and as such, Milan don’t want the risk of injury to hang on their head even before the season has started. However, Milan have confirmed that he will return to the squad before August 6 for the Vincenza-Milan pre-season friendly.
A host of players are linked with a move to Milan this summer. The defense is a priority this summer as they are setting their sights on a double defense transfer this summer. Evan Ndicka and Japhet Tanganga are the primary targets for defense. Moreover, Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech is also linked with a move to San Siro this summer.
