Strong boost of Confidence for the primavera going undefeated this season. I think it’s clear we belong in the first division and were just of a horrid season under Lupi. We have such a big rotation that we could field two competitive teams just like rube in the league.

He’s been a monster this year. Wld also rate Mionic, has a very nice reading of the game. Good batch of talents coming through in the primavera but Giuntis picks are a little irritating at times, he goes very Italian with his starting 11. Can’t say if he’s just picking the best lineup or if there’s some language barrier, but for example I would rather him not start Soncin over Jungdal.

Is there any player he reminds you of? I can't find a good scouting report online...

As of today, there's not many players who possesses such rare characteristics, but If there's a player in world football, I would have to say Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Both players are sort of an 'all-in-one' exclusive.

From what I've seen this and last season, Brescianini coordinates excellent technical dexterity (despite his height) with intelligence, such as runs in behind, and on top of that, he has a quite physical profile. Whenever I've seen him for the Primavera this season, he has dropped deep and played as a regista but he tends to move up the pitch a little bit, as the game goes on. As I described, he's a very complete box-to-box midfielder and he's deemed as one of the best talents, both in Milan's academy and on Primavera level.

Additionally, he's prolific, too, as he's the joint-topscorer for the Primavera this season with 6 goals in 10 games. Here are some of his actions against the Primavera team for the senior team (he scored a hattrick - check out the 2nd goal!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yppXYm83ZR0

Freekicks? Also in his repertoire. - https://youtu.be/zFFFFg7mHZg?t=197

I have put all my eggs in one basket for this guy. If he doesn't make it, no one will

Depends on how he develops, can’t quite tell how he wld fare if we threw him anywhere near the first team. But he’s about to turn 20, which is 2 years older than Locatelli when he got his shot, and he can totally disappears against primavera2 teams. He’s either going to be a late bloomer and make it into the bench and eventually force it into first team or he’s going to rot at some serie b/c team. imo if compared i would say talent and potential wise there are better and younger primavera players.

Thinking about it, another player that is comparable to Brescianini, is Man Utd's Scott McTominay.

But, I agree with you. Brescianini is no Mbappe talent. IMO, he can develop into a fine player, if given time and chances. However, it's worth remembering that not every player, despite a great amount of talent, is able to adapt with the pressure of taking the step up from academy football to senior football. I don't think this will be the case w/ Brescianini, as I see him as a 'future captain' type of player, but it's still something to keep in mind. Hachim Mastour, a prime example.

Right now, Brescianini is the spearhead of the triumvirate with Luan Capanni and Daniel Maldini in the Primavera - what a sight to behold to watch them this season. I've always regarded those three as the best players/talents in the pool.

A loan move to a lower-placed Serie A club would do him really good. Where's Chievo when you need them?

Maldini is really exciting, nice reading of the game and surprisingly got a lot of flare with passes compared to his old man. Nice free kicks, maybe even topping Hakan lmao. Still doesn’t have the explosive speed and physique to be a game changer off the bench just yet. But at 18 years old and already having his unofficial debut, I can see him in our bench within one to two years.

For people that have watching the Primavera, is Lorenzo Colombo any good/does he have talent? Is there a player he reminds you of?

Playing several youth caps for Italy.
Have a dangerous left foot.
I really have a hard time believing that he should be good enough for Milan?s Senior team.

In relation to the news of use of Primavera players as subs, I see Capanni, Pecorino and Tonin before Colombo. But Imight be wrong. Colombo have always been praised by staff and so.

Ceilings on a Primavera level are quite difficult to gauge, as evidenced by Mastour and Paloschi not making it while an outcast like Aubameyang being one of the best strikers in the world.

It's a small sample size to judge Colombo on, but given that he's only played 300 minutes and yet has managed to score 9 league goals, despite being the youngest in the team, is a testament to his undeniable quality and potential.

I've seen the news about him possibly making his Serie A debut with Zlatan injured, but I think it's too early for someone like him to be thrown in with the wolves. At least for now. Let him train with the first team and gain some experience first.

As kaka*** said, I see Capanni and Tonin ahead of Colombo in the pecking order when Pioli will choose his subs for the remainder of the season. I don't see this line of reasoning because of talent or quality, but because of age + minimal experience.

(Although we've seen a 16-year old Donnarumma replace an experienced Diego Lopez before..)
