The agent of new Wolves signing Patrick Cutrone has revealed his client was forced out of AC Milan against his wishes.
The Italian striker joined Nuno Espirito Santo’s side for a reported £16.2m earlier this week, ending a 12-year association with the Rossoneri for the academy graduate.
Did Cutrone move against his wishes? Five things to know…
- Cutrone completed a £16.2m move to Wolves from AC Milan this week.
- The striker had spent 12 years with the club, making 90 senior appearances.
- But last season, he started just 12 Serie A games.
- Even so, Cutrone’s agent has revealed his client wished to remain in Milan.
- But the player has still vowed to give his all for Wolves this season.
But his agent, Donato Orgnoni, has revealed he would have preferred to remain at the San Siro if the decision was left to Cutrone.
“A new adventure begins and I think he’ll get along well there,” Orgnoni told Radio Marte.
“Milan made a choice that was different to the one we would’ve made. You can agree with it or not, but we had to accept it.”
Despite his desire to remain in Milan, Cutrone has vowed to give his all for Wolves, admitting the prospect of playing in the Premier League is “fantastic”.
“I’m very pleased to be here because the club really wanted me. I’m very happy and want to give my all for the team,” he told the club’s official website upon arriving.
“The club really wanted me and being able to play in the Premier League for Wolves is fantastic. I just can’t wait to get started.”

Cutrone started just 12 Serie A games for Milan last year, scoring three goals in the process. As such, the 21-year-old has cited first-team football as one of the main things he’s looking forward to at Molineux for the 2019/20 season.
He added: “I’ve come here to play football. I’ll have to settle in initially and I’m looking forward to heading out on to the pitch to play.”
“You never stop learning and I’m here to learn new things, but I’ll certainly give my all for the team.
“I can say to the fans that I’m very pleased to be here and I can’t wait to play and feel their support.”
