Old Trafford side could make San Siro star move.
Kevin-Prince Boateng’s future at AC Milan is in doubt.
The former Tottenham and Portsmouth midfielder has rebuilt his career in Italy, where he is now regarded among Serie A’s most exciting midfield talents.
Boateng attracted interest from Real Madrid and Manchester United last month, but those close to his camp always insisted he was happy in Milan.
However, the summer clearout and delays over the opening of new contract talks has left Boateng frustrated.
Things are going a little pear shaped at AC Milan. Having lost their grip on the Serie A title to Juventus the San Siro side then saw arguably their two best players leave in the summer as Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were sold to PSG, a decision that appears to have left Massimiliano Allegri’s future at the club a little uncertain.
The season hasn’t started all that great either with the Rossoneri losing three of their first five Serie A games and that has led to speculation that a number of their stars could scarper and Kevin Prince-Boateng is the latest to apparently be leaning in that direction.
The former Tottenham and Portsmouth man has made a real impact since his move to Italy but perhaps the chance to move to Man United, or indeed Real Madrid, may be too big a temptation to turn down and clearly owner Silvio Berlusconi is looking to cash in on player sales at present so a decent enough offer may be accepted.
Given that Paul Scholes is nearing the end of his career and Michael Carrick is perhaps not as effective as in his pomp. Darren Fletcher is recovering from illness and Sir Alex Ferguson may have ran out of patience with Anderson after a lengthy period of average form. Tom Cleverley has matured but Kevin Prince-Boateng could offer a more attacking presence in the Man United midfield.
