CM: Badelj may be allowed to leave by Fiorentina

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been linked with a host of midfielders since the serious injury suffered by Riccardo Montolivo.

One of the names mentioned is Milan Badelj of Fiorentina, though recent reports suggested he would not be an easy target to acquire.

Fiorentina president Mario Cognigni spoke to SportItalia : “Napoli are after Kalinic and Milan after Badelj? I don’t know if this is true or not. We wanted to maintain the squad we had and we won’t dismantle it in this upcoming transfer window either. If some players leave then we will replace them with other champions”.

Milan have been following Badelj very closely as his contract is set to expire in 2018. Marco Fassone and Mirabelli consider him to be the perfect replacement to the injured Montolivo. Fabregas is another hot name for the rossoneri midfield.
