CM: Future of Milan centre-back in the balance – a sale or a pay cut the two options

By Oliver Fisher -

Mateo Musacchio’s future at AC Milan is approaching a crossroads this summer, a report claims, with two possible options open.

The Argentine was one of the first names on the team sheet under Gennaro Gattuso last season and at the beginning of the current campaign, however he has fallen down the pecking order.

At present, Matteo Gabbia and January signing Simon Kjaer appear to be ahead of Musacchio in the depth chart in terms of partners for captain Alessio Romagnoli, with no sign of that changing any time soon.

Speculation has been rife since that he could leave Milan this summer after three years, with Calciomercato.com claiming recently that he is deemed far from unsellable by the management.

Now, the same outlet have provided an update by claiming that the Rossoneri will consider offers for the Argentine.

CEO Ivan Gazidis who is aware of the fact that because of his contract, which is due to expire on 30 June 2021, this will be the last transfer window which could provide an acceptable fee from Musacchio’s sale.

If no suitable offer comes forward, however, the clubs will work on his renewal but on a reduced salary.
