AC Milan are beginning to achieve their aim of getting rid of some of the unwanted players in the squad, but they are only part way through the process.
Today’s edition of Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) writes that there are many players who are no longer part of the plans of Stefano Pioli and the club. After the departures of Ante Rebic, Junior Messias and the imminent one of Charles De Ketelaere, work is ongoing to find new teams for other players.
The most urgent is Fodè Ballo-Tourè. The departure of the Senegalese full-back – who was left out of the tour in the United States and from all the friendlies of this pre-season – would then see the Rossoneri go for a new deputy to Theo Hernandez. Riccardo Calafiori is still the name at the top of the list.
Other players awaiting new accommodation are Mattia Caldara, Marko Lazetic and Yacine Adli. Lorenzo Colombo could remain in the squad as Olivier Giroud’s deputy, but there are many loan requests and a new spell in Serie A could beckon.
