Alexis Saelemaekers is seemingly heading for the exit door but AC Milan are yet to receive any concrete offers, according to a report.
As Calciomercato.com report, that image of Saelemaekers dribbling past the Napoli defence and scoring the goal to make it 4-0 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona back on April 2 now seems like a distant memory.
The signings of Christian Pulisic, Samuel Chukwueze and Luka Romero have pushed him to the fringes of Stefano Pioli’s plans, and this was proven during the preseason friendly campaign in which he only got a few substitute appearances.
Now his position is ‘on par with that of Caldara, Ballo-Touré and Origi’ as per the report because he is training aside from the first team squad, which indicates that he is no longer a central part of the plans.
His departure will depend a lot on the bids that arrive from abroad. Milan have him under contract until 2026 and paid €10.9 to sign him when factoring in loan fee, but to date there are still no concrete offers.
In recent days Besiktas came forward with an enquiry aimed at testing the ground before a real attempt. Proposals are awaited, and now the idea of a loan with option to buy is beginning to gain momentum too.
