Cutrone – Locatelli, what a pair. The future of Milan and Italy

A new era has started for AC Milan. Not only with the many new arrivals but also with heavy investments for the youth ranks.

In recent years, in Casa Milan, there has often been talks about the class of ’98, a year filled with many talents of guaranteed future. At this moment, two of these are the main members of this group, namely central midfielder Manuel Locatelli and centre forward Patrick Cutrone, who, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport today’s reports, represent the present and the future of both AC Milan and the Italian national team.

The season start for the young striker has been marvelous. He started by scoring in the first friendly match against Lugano and continued even in China against Bayern Munich until he started to net in the official games of Europa League and Serie A. The last goal, in order of time, he scored it on Monday night with the Italian Under 21 shirt against Slovenia with the help of his great friend Manuel Locatelli. A beautiful goal, of a pure striker. Cutrone is working hard, even beyond the training hours, and hears carefully all the tips that both Vincenzo Montella and Nicola Caccia give him.

Patrick has a great desire to grow and improve, like Locatelli who already exploded last season when he scored against Sassuolo and decided the home match against Juventus. The new Milan will restart also and above all from them, without forgetting Niccolo Zanellato, also of 1998, a midfielder who is liked a lot by the manager, so much that he has wanted to keep him in the first team.

The next product of Milan youth ranks to be launched in the first team will be definitely him, hoping he can follow the footsteps of Patrick and Manuel. And with the help of the other experienced players of the team like Leonardo Bonucci and Lucas Biglia a bright future is guaranteed.
