Atalanta 'to retain Pasalic'

Atalanta will take up their option to buy Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic at the end of the season, reports Tuttosport.

La Dea signed the Croatian midfielder on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea in the summer of 2018, and he has been a big hit in Bergamo.

Now, Tuttosport writes Atalanta will exercise their option to retain him for €15m next summer.

Pasalic has scored 12 goals in 60 appearances for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, providing nine assists.

The 24-year-old also had a stint at Milan, playing for the Rossoneri during the 2016-17 campaign.
