Manchester City playmaker Luca Scapuzzi has opened the door on a return to Milan…
Scapuzzi, who is currently on loan at Varese, came through the ranks at Milan before moving to lower league side Portogruaro, where his displays earned him a switch to City in 2011.
The 21-year-old says the presence of established stars blocked his path during his first stint at the San Siro but feels their new policy of placing faith in youth – Milan got rid of ten players aged 30 or over during the summer – would allow him to thrive if handed a second chance at his former club.
He told TMW (Tuttomercatoweb): “I’m glad to know that now at Milan there is room for the younger generation.
“Milan is always in my heart. One day I would like to go back, but I decided to leave in 2011 because at the time there was no room for young players at Milan.”
The 21-year-old playmaker, who spent time on loan at Oldham Athletic and Portsmouth last season, has managed to get only two senior appearances for the Premier League champions.
