Cutrone 'not leaving Milan'

Despite reports of interest from Torino and Fiorentina, Patrick Cutrone’s agent insists he “never thought about leaving” Milan.

The striker has inevitably dropped down the pecking order with the arrival of Krzysztof Piatek in January.

“Patrick is absolutely concentrated on Milan, hoping to give his contribution for qualification to the Champions League and also the Coppa Italia Final,” agent Giovanni Branchini told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“These are important objectives and he is well aware of the situation. He respects Gennaro Gattuso’s choices and the quality of his teammates.

“His rapport with the Coach is very clear. I want to point out that Patrick grew up in the Rossoneri academy, he feels himself to be a Milan fan and hopes this will always be his jersey.

“Patrick knows full well that this is a transitional season that can help him to grow. He never thought about leaving, nor did we suggest such a thing.

“The rumours of a deal with another club, especially the stories about Torino, are simply not true. Not only have we not talked to any other clubs, but we have no meetings planned either.”
