Yacine Adli is the subject of some mystery this summer after a season in which he didn’t get many opportunities from Stefano Pioli.
According to Calciomercato.com, Adli was one of the first to show up at Milanello yesterday for the start of the preseason and he has a desire for redemption after a season in which he played a total of 140 minutes.
On his Instagram profile, Adli posted a photo with the caption ‘Back to work’ with red and black hearts. Rafael Leao replied: “Show who you are”.
That’s what the former Bordeaux start is hoping for. The Franco-Algerian wants to have more chances and he will work hard to try and get into the rotations and convince head coach Stefano Pioli, but at the moment he is fighting an uphill battle.
Pioli has said that Adli can leave and Milan are open to selling him to raise cash, having paid around €10m to sign him from Ligue 1. Even a loan departure cannot be ruled out at present, with Salernitana having come forward.
At the moment everything is on pause, but Adli’s will is clear: he wants to stay at Milan and will do everything to succeed.
