On March 12th, Beijing time, according to the Italian media "Corriere dello Sport", Serie A giants AC Milan are paying attention to Italian rising star Matteo Retegi and intend to bring him to the San Siro Stadium. At present, the ownership of Matteo Retegie is in the hands of Argentine giant Boca Juniors, and his liquidated damages are only 18 million euros, which is not high for the Rossoneri who are about to receive at least 70 million euros of Champions League bonuses.
Matteo Retegie, though named as an Italian rising star, can actually see from his name that he is not a pure Italian. Matteo Retegie was born in Argentina and had been playing in the Argentine League before. It was not until the beginning of this month, at the invitation of Italian national team coach Mancini, that he officially decided to play for the Italian national team, and he might play in the Euro 2024 qualifier this month.
Matteo Retegie came from the riverbed echelon, and then transferred to Boca Juniors echelon. He has been rented out for exercise in recent years. Matteo Retegie is 186cm tall and weighs 86kg. He is a center on the court. He has good footwork skills, a strong body and the potential to be a strong center. In the past two seasons, during Tigray’s playing period, Matteo Reggie gradually showed his talent.
Last season, Matteo Retegie played 27 games for Tigray, including 26 starts, and scored 19 goals and 3 assists, beating many players such as Cristaldo and winning the league shooter king in one fell swoop. So far this season, he has scored six goals in seven games, and his state is still hot, so he has also attracted the attention of many European teams, including AC Milan, the Italian giants who have been paying attention to him for a long time.
At present, Matteo Retegie’s brokerage company was founded by Italian legendary star Totti. As early as three years ago, Rome wanted to introduce this new star, but it failed to make it. Milan also paid attention to Matteo Retegie for a long time, and the club scouts tracked him and issued a scout report. When Ibrahimovic and Gill are older, Milan need to find a strong center, and Matteo Retegi, who is only 23 years old, seems to be a good choice.
Matteo Retegie’s contract with Boca Juniors will expire in 2024. With more than one year left in the contract, the transfer negotiations are relatively easy to start. If Tigray buys Matteo Retegie first, it will be difficult to sign this new star at this price. For Matteo Retegie, it is also a good thing for him to go to Serie A as soon as possible. After all, now that he is about to be selected for the Italian national team, he needs to be familiar with the Italian football style as soon as possible.
