At 24, his football life has already made a complete turn on itself. From Como, to Como. Patrick Cutrone has decided to reconceive with the scent of home, with the serenity that only “Sinigaglia” can give him. A few weeks of adaptation to B and the new reality, and here is the real Cutrone. The striker who, when he was very young, already seemed to have the stigmata of the predestined: the first joy, or rather two, arrived on the sixth day. After the limelight with a prestigious club like Milan that raised him from an early age, the class of ’98 has become in very few games one of the most popular young people in the entire European football scene. The Lombard player (born in Como) took the first steps in the local team of Parediense, immediately attracted the attention of the Rossoneri observers who brought him to Milan at the age of 8. Ten years in the youth sector of the Milanese club, in which the striker was able to score 136 goals.
Vincenzo Montella believed a lot in him, so much so that he permanently brought him to the first team and, in the 2016-2017 season, he also granted him his Serie A debut on matchday 38 in the 3-0 win against Bologna. Summer 2017 was that of the definitive arrival at the Milan court in the first team; in fact, he made his debut in the Europa League and his first professional goal in the return match of the third qualifying round against Universitatea Craiova. Then also the first goal in Serie A on the first day of the 2017-2018 championship against Crotone.
In that season Patrick Cutrone was the idol of the fans and the driving force for most of the championship, seeing that with 18 goals overall he was the best scorer of that football season for Milan. In the following season the young striker suffered the pressure of the arrival of Higuain first and then Piatek. Little space to express yourself at your best. So the class of ’98 decided to get back in the game to find more space by accepting the court of the English of Wolverhampton, but the adventure in the Premier League lasted very little, only six months. In the winter transfer window of 2020 the return to Italy, but to Fiorentina with a two-year loan. For Cutrone, later, a new chance came, this time in LaLiga at Valencia. Even in Spain the striker did not find the right continuity, so he tried to return to Serie A and marry the Empoli project (an adventure that ended with 31 appearances and 3 goals).
Last summer the real return home for Cutrone took place with the call of Como. For the boy born a few meters from the Sinigaglia stadium it was an honor to accept the ambitious project of the Larian club. After the many troubled loans, Cutrone has decided to try to find stability in his hometown, also signing a contract that will bind him until 2025. For Cutrone also the first joy, indeed double because in the home match against SPAL they arrived the first scoring with the Como shirt on the 6th day of the 2022 – 2023 championship.
