San Siro side set for mass exodus.
AC Milan are set for a very busy summer indeed with speculation rife over the future of almost half the club’s entire squad according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
As many as 15 of Massimiliano Allegri’s 33 man squad are being linked with San Siro exits, the most high profile of which being Kevin-Prine Boateng, Robinho and Stephan El Shaarawy.
AC Milan are plotting a major summer re-building project and in order to bring in fresh additions the Italian giants must first clear space for their arrival.
Veteran Massimo Ambrosini, Mario Yepes and loaned in striker Bojan Krkic are all set to leave and bit part players Urby Emanuelson, Taye Taiwo and Bakaye Traore are also set to be left looking for new clubs this summer.
Mathieu Flamini is out of contract next week and with no new deal on the table the experienced French midfielder will be available on a free transfer and fellow AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino could also be on his way out after an average second season at the club.
Luca Antonini, Cristian Zaccardo, Bartosz Salamon, Didac Vila, Marco Amelia, Nnamdi Oduamadi and Rodney Strasser are all also named by this source as possible departing players.
Of all the 15 players listed one would imagine that AC Milan fans will hope that El Shaarawy is not sold, knowing full well that the Italian international is one of the hottest prospects in European football.
Last summer owner Silvio Berlusconi sold Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to PSG in a move that greatly angered the Rossoneri Tifosi, it’s a move he may not want to repeat.
AC Milan fell some 15 points off the Serie A title pace last term and the loss of any of their top talent will not help the club make up ground on a resurgent Juventus side.
