Milan has officially declared their acquisition of Marco Pellegrino through a permanent transfer from the Argentinian club Club Atletico Platense.
The highly-regarded defender has signed a five-year contract that will remain in effect until the summer of 2028.
According to recent reports from Sky Sport Italia, it is believed that the Rossoneri paid an initial fee of €3.5 million to bring the 21-year-old to San Siro, in addition to agreeing to pay up to €2 million in bonuses and 10% of any future sell-on.
Pellegrino has only represented Platense in his career so far. He graduated from the club’s academy and made his debut for the first team in March of this year. Since then, he has made 17 appearances for the senior side and scored one goal.
Pellegrino becomes part of a substantial group of players who have transitioned to Milan this summer. This group includes Marco Sportiello, Luca Romero, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Tijjani Reijnders, Noah Okafor, Samuel Chukwueze, and Yunus Musah.
