MILAN (AP) — AC Milan signed forward Pietro Pellegri on loan from Monaco on Wednesday.
Milan said the deal includes an option to make the signing permanent, which becomes an obligation if certain, unspecified, conditions are met.
The 20-year-old Pellegri is the second forward Milan has signed this offseason after the Rossoneri brought in the 34-year-old Olivier Giroud from Chelsea.
Pellegri equaled the record for being the youngest player to make his debut in Serie A when he appeared for Genoa in 2016, aged 15 years, 280 days — a mark later broken by Wisdom Amey. Five months later he became the first player born in the 21st century to score a goal in the top five European leagues.
