funny thing is, i'm not even shitting on Cutrone.

I actually got a chance to meet him at Casa Milan and take a selfie with (adding below from my private IG), and was a fan on him for years.

however, painting a picture of him as a failed youth product\ a player that we didn't know to utilize properly is just wrong currently. Maybe he'll grow in a specific club in the future, right now it doesnt seem like it.

Wrong. 3 seasons in a row, he scored only 2 goals. Also, he didn't do shit at Milan and only managed to get some confidence boost after going back to his home country for 5 seasons, 1st being in Ligue 2. Cutrone shined from the start and now he's moving between foreign countries, when it's the most critical time for his growth.

I understand he's not producing, but you can't really use Auba as an example, I think they've shared similar struggles.

"wasn't Auba in a similar spot at this age?",
so no:

Aubameyang at age 22\23 has netted 19 goals and 12 assists in French first division.

again, incorrect if looking at stats. However, I get you point of him not giving much during his youth years. difference is, Cutrone is not our player anymore. Aubameyang did produce little when he was loaned to different teams every transfer season by us. Cutrone can choose any club he wishes (I.E., we are not to blame for his lack of development, unlike the Aubameyang case).

Didn't do shit at Milan I agree with, partially our fault, however Cutrone stayed for a year in his home country.



summation, Aubameyang may share the same background but surely not the same story and development as it stand now.

Cutrone just doesn't offer too much and would require certain tactics so his shortcomings are hidden and his best attributes are utilized.

I like him, but I am actually pretty happy we were able to get some value for him.

I hope he grows into a different player and proves me wrong, but so far, it doesn't seem like it.
