Pasalic ‘has Milan at heart’

The agent of Mario Pasalic has hinted the player may wish to remain at Milan beyond the end of his loan spell.

The 21-year-old made a temporary switch to San Siro from Chelsea at the start of the season and, though he has had his fair share of injury problems of late, he scored the decisive penalty in the Rossoneri’s recent Supercoppa Italiana win over Juventus.

“He's very proud to have scored the decisive penalty and wear the AC Milan shirt,” Marko Naletilic commented during an interview withGazzetta dello Sport.

“[Vincenzo] Montella has shown great faith in him and has given him confidence after his long injury.

“This is something Mario appreciates a lot. He still has room for improvement - he's at 70 per cent now.

“His future will depend on several factors: on Chelsea, Milan, and him, of course. 

“His wish counts and I can say that Mario already has AC Milan in his heart.”
