From Crotone to AC Milan, and with a story to tell. 30-year-old Junior Messias joined the Rossoneri on the last day of the summer transfer window after a long journey that saw him make his way up from the lower leagues. It all began when, after being discovered by Ezio Rossi, he joined Casale at the fifth level of Italian football. A move to Chieri in Serie D followed, while he also played in the same division and then in Serie C for Gozzano, thus taking his first steps in the professional game. In January 2019, he signed for Crotone. After contributing to the Calabrian side’s promotion from Serie B to Serie A, he also starred during the 2020/21 Serie A campaign, after which AC Milan came calling. Capable of playing as a winger or attacking playmaker, the left-footed Brazilian has excellent dribbling ability and particularly aims to make a creative impact on the ball.
