Pellegrino did not play for the first time with the first squad until March 2023. Since then, he has appeared in 17 games, scoring one goal and assisting his club in keeping eight clean sheets. It is believed that he will join the Rossoneri as the fifth choice central defender for the season, after Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw, Simon Kjaer, and Pierre Kalulu respectively.
