I gotta say this:

Forza Cutro!!

You had the passion but not the skills. Mi amigo, grow up and get better like Petagna did. Petagna was so much worse than you while playing at Milan but look at him now. Focus, work and work with the same hunger. As an AC Milan Fan for so long, I wish you the best even though you might not be anymore in the club.

Because he's not good enough, and probably will never be for a club with Milan's ambitions.
I agree he isn't as good as Piatek at present.

But whether he is never going to be still remains to be seen. Aubameyang looked like a fast guy with nothing else when we loaned him with an option to buy for 1m in 2011 when he was 22, exploded thereafter. Inzaghi had a pretty poor haul at Parma when he was 22, only to go on to have a great career and scored bucketloads for Atalanta, Juve and us. Petagna looked pretty poor after some early promise and now if we were in a healthy financial state we'd probably think 18m would not be too much to get him back in as a backup.

If we were financially like Real Madrid or Juventus we would loan Cutrone out or have a buyback clause, but since we aren't we it would not be a stretch to put trust in promising youngsters in various stages of their development in key positions. We are already doing it for Calabria, Theo, Bennacer, Kessie, Paqueta - even Leao if rumours are true, and hope they will explode or at least mature to be competent in their positions as part of a system.

In the end I concede I don't have the full picture that Maldini and co. have and probably never will so I will have to trust in their decisions. But it doesn't make it easy to swallow.

dumb sale. ~20m. lol, Milan acting like this will never get back to the top. Other clubs value their top youngsters so much higher these days. Milan look desperate, not like a top club. Gross sale here

The thing is not only that he's leaving Milan, his boyhood club, but also for a club that he probably had never heard of before Mendes intervened.

FFS Patrick, couldn't you have made it easy like Locatelli, or Sheva with his children needing to learn English, or Kaka crying over Man City but flirting with Real Madrid?

Forza Cutrone. I hope you prove your worth.

andre silva looked like a fantastic signing on paper. he ticked every box and we desperately needed a striker like him. but a players attitude is often understated.

leao might look like a more able, more technical and more suitable SS to play with piontek, but with these young strikers its hit n miss every single time. Cutrone you knew was going to give 100% for the club and improve in any way he could.

employees are the backbone of every business, you don't get rid of the one who would jump through fire for you, especially not for 20m in this market.

You do if you believe their ceiling isn't that high and that they can be replaced by a player with a higher ceiling who fits better into the tactical set up. There's always a risk with these things. If Leao explodes then the deal will be considered a steal and a genius move, if he doesn't and Cutrone does then it will be considered the opposite. That's how these things, you win some and you lose some. All we can do is hope our management did their due diligence and trust in their assessment until they give us reason not to.

umm, what we needed was a dependable goal scorer.
He barely ticked any of the boxes.

His comments hurt, really makes Milan look cold and harsh. What does the club have to say for this?

Milan has been cold and harsh. We offloaded him for 18m.... in this market? I mean really? We needed that 18m soooo bad we couldn't just wait in the market to sell Silva on? This Milan has no more soul. Just money and young pedo kids... also, barely anymore italian core which we have always had. Selling cutro himself is not that backbreaking, it's just how much of a cold shitty business machine we are becoming that hurts. and not even a profitable one! Hopefully we don't decline much more and lose too much more of ourselves because it will be hard to support if this is just the beginning of us becoming like Inter... time will tell. I'll wait for the season to make my judgement

“Brother, I still can’t believe it, but this is the harsh reality,” wrote Locatelli on Instagram.


“From kids making their debuts to the senior squad, a story we can tell to children who are chasing the same dreams we had. That dream that after eight years we could look each other in the eye and say, we did it.

“You were the perfect incarnation of what it means to be Milan. I wish you the best, because you deserve it. Life forces us to make choices and we have to take them. I hope for you that this is the right path. I am convinced that with your determination and hunger, you’ll give your all and prove yourself in England too.

“Distance can never be a problem for us, and we’ve already proved that. I can only say that I’ll always be here for you. All the best, my brother.”

Calabria also sent a message to Cutrone via Instagram.

“It’ll be strange, so very strange, after all these years not to be in the same dressing room, wearing the same shirt, not having you constantly under my feet at Milanello. But that is football. That is life.

“You already know everything I think and what you need to do. It won’t be easy, but with your grit, you’ll manage it. I wish you the best, my friend, I will miss you.”

Cutrone himself also posted his farewell to Milan and its fans.

“I wanted to tell you so many things, but I don’t know where to start… Dear Milan, that’s what it’s like.

“You welcomed me at the age of eight, I was a child who dreamed of scoring a goal at San Siro. Now I have grown up, as a player and a man. Rossonero, on the field and in life. An immense honour.

“Thank you so much to everyone: the staff, my teammates. And a huge embrace for my fans. You will always be in my heart: you made me feel loved in every moment.

“For me, leaving a positive memory in your hearts is the greatest victory. I wish the best to the club that I love, my teammates and you fans! With all of my heart, which is red and black, Patrick. Forza MILAN.”

Best of luck to Patrick, a true Milanisti. A shame he couldn't stay but I understand he wants to be playing every week and at the same time the club can't offer that to him.

Really hope he has a successful time with Wolves and it leads him onto better things.
