“The squad and the city: here’s why Zaniolo says yes to Milan.”, this was written by Il Corriere dello Sport explaining the reasons for the choice of Nicolò. The player has an agreement already with the 23-year-old attacking midfielder.
In the Rossoneri club there are characters who have an important human and football weight in the mind of the Giallorossi attacker, starting with Massara, one of the first managers to believe in him (Massara advised Monchi to include him in the deal for Nainggolan instead of Radu).
But that’s not all: there is the idol Ibra, the esteem for Pioli, his friend Florenzi and then Paolo Maldini. “Finally, the personal chapter: Milan is not too far from La Spezia and it is not too far from the capital”. For these reasons, Zaniolo said yes to the Rossoneri, as relayed by Milan News.
