The news has been in the public domain for several weeks now, but gradually new developments are emerging to confirm it and make it increasingly concrete: Milan has seriously stepped forward for the second team; indeed, in recent weeks, there have been contacts between the Rossoneri club and Lega Pro, governed by Matteo Marani, with the club from via Aldo Rossi showing a serious expression of interest.
Formal request by Milan...
Having an U-23 team would mean closely monitoring, on a daily basis, those players considered potential future prospects for the first team but who are not yet entirely ready for a permanent place in the senior squad.
According to what has been reported by Tuttomercatoweb.com, at the moment, Milan is in first place in the rankings for the spot in Serie C, and has already initiated formal request procedures with Lega Pro.
The Rossoneri's second team project has gained strong momentum in recent weeks, so much so that other possible candidates, including Fiorentina, Sassuolo, and Torino, have all been surpassed by the Rossoneri's plans.
What's needed from Milan to start the U23?
By the first week of June, it will be understood if there will be teams not suitable for registration in the next Lega Pro championship. The first reprieve would go to a Serie A second team, with Milan, in case this condition occurs, already stepping forward and presenting the request at the right time; the second reprieve would instead go to a Lega Pro team. Something more will already be understood between March and April.
