There is an extraordinary suggestion Pescara could bring Gianluca Lapadula back on loan after selling him to Milan.
The striker was the undoubted star of last season in Serie B, scoring 30 goals in 44 Serie B games, including the promotion play-offs.
He was wanted by numerous clubs, including Napoli and Leicester City, but opted for Milan because he thought he’d get more regular playing time there.
However, Lapadula hasn’t featured at all in pre-season due to fitness problems and Carlos Bacca appears to be staying at San Siro, surely limiting his chances.
“With hindsight, it wasn’t a great choice for him,” said Pescara President Daniele Sebastiani on Radio Kiss Kiss this week.
“He didn’t want to go to Napoli because Gonzalo Higuain was there. Perhaps it was better to choose a mid-table club so he’d have more space.”
Now tuttopescaracalcio.com claim Pescara are going a step further – they have asked Milan to take Lapadula back on loan just weeks after his €9m transfer to San Siro.
