'Ibra can help Cutrone, De Sciglio…'
Agent Donato Orgnoni insists Zlatan Ibrahimovic can ‘help’ Milan striker Patrick Cutrone and that Mattia De Sciglio was a ‘bargain’ for Juventus’.
Orgnoni represents both players and was asked by Tuttosport about their situations, given Ibra’s prospective return to Milan in January and De Sciglio’s competition with Joao Cancelo and Alex Sandro at Juve.
“Mattia is playing at only 60 percent of his potential,” he told Tuttosport.
“That he won seven of his eight duels with Federico Chiesa doesn’t surprise me. What surprises me is who didn’t expect it.
“That’s Mattia and he only lacks continuity, given he started the season late due to some physical problems.
“Cancelo isn’t up for discussion, but Mattia has something more defensively. Competing with people like him and Alex Sandro is a great stimulus for Mattia and he wants to become a top player.
“He was convinced by the bargain Juventus had negotiated and now it seems clear to everyone.
“They spent €12m for De Sciglio. You buy a young man for that figure, not a fully-developed international.
“My dream is to have four of my clients at the next World Cup: De Sciglio, Cutrone, Verdi and Bettella.
“Patrick keeps scoring goals. He’s on to seven for the season and 25 in just over a year. Ibra? It wouldn’t be a problem for Patrick. Champions like Ibra will help him grow.”
