AC Milan are getting ready to travel to the United States for a preseason tour which includes friendlies against Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona.
Gianluca Di Marzio writes that from the start of training to today, Stefano Pioli has had the opportunity to reflect on the squad he has and evaluate the choices to make in view of the tour, with departure set for July 21.
Not all players will be called up for the trip and some surprise exclusions could come. For example, Ante Rebic, Divock Origi, Fodé Ballo-Touré and Marko Lazetic are not expected to board the plane on Friday.
On the morning of Thursday 20 July, the Rossoneri coach will make his last reflections before confirming the choices but at present the quartet are destined to be left in Italy.
Matteo Gabbia, Junior Messias, Yacine Adli and Alexis Saelemaekers should go with the team but the choice does not change the situation of the players, who are not in the plans (especially Gabbia and Messias).
