Tommaso Milanese has left Roma to join Alessandria on loan with an option for further permanent business.
A Roma academy product, Milanese made his first-team debut in a November 2020 Europa League game against CFR Cluj, marking it with an assist.
The same competition gave him his first goal for the club, the following month against CSKA Sofia. However, things have not progressed for him as he would have hoped since.
Failing to make a matchday squad since the turn of the year, Milanese was excluded from pre-season training for the first team and looked likely to leave on a permanent basis.
There was a late twist, though, as Tiago Pinto reflected on his potential and decided he would only be willing to loan him out.
Thus, Milanese will spend the season in Serie B with Alessandria, despite having interest from other top-flight sides.
According to reports, Alessandria will have the option to make the transfer permanent, while Roma will retain a buyback clause if they do.
Good luck, Tommaso.
