AC Milan are monitoring Jose Bosingwa’s contract talks at Chelsea with a view to launching a summer bid for the right-back.
Bosingwa, who is out of contract in the summer, is currently negotiating a new deal at Stamford Bridge and is thought to be close to signing a one-year extension.
But no agreement has yet been reached and Milan hope to pick the 28-year-old up on a free transfer if he does not commit to another 12 months at Chelsea.
According to reports in Italy, the Portugal international is also attracting interest from Bayern Munich, who could be tempted to offer him a contract if he becomes available in June.
Carlo Ancelotti clearly appears to favour Branislav Ivanovic over Jose Bosingwa and given the performances the Italian got out of the Serbian last term, seems a fairly obvious choice, that is no to say however that Bosingwa doesn’t also have a lot to offer but it seems that the 28 year old may have to leave Stamford Bridge in order to not stagnate a career that still has a lot to offer.
Bosingwa also works well as a more advanced wing back and it is in this role that he is arguably most proficient in, given that he has a lot more to offer going forward than he does at the back.
AC Milan are flying high at the top of Serie A and new boss Massimiliano Allegri has done a fine job turning things around this season and has brought in some intelligent additions to his San Siro side and given the ageing nature of the club’s back four a move for fresh talent would appear to make a great deal of sense.
Bosingwa may feel a fresh challenge in Serie A, or indeed in the Bundesliga, would be preferable to trying to persuade Ancelotti that he is worth considering as a regular first team starter.
