There is a lot of focus on the additions that AC Milan need to make their squad grow in quality, but there will reportedly also be some departures to make room.
According to Calciomercato.com, the four games between now and the end of the league season will also be the last at the club for both winger Samu Castillejo and midfielder Tiemouè Bakayoko.
News should arrive in the next two weeks about the former who has a market in Spain, Paolo Maldini could be satisfied with a break-even on his book value given his deal expires in June 2023. For the French midfielder, the management will have to try to find a solution with Chelsea, but the early termination of his loan is a very likely option.
Meanwhile, Ante Rebic has an uncertain future as expressions of interest from French and German clubs have arrived for the Croatian striker. Rebic is ‘not exactly the portrait of happiness at the moment’ and if a good offer arrived he could leave Milan at the end of the season.
Finally, Junior Messias also seems destined to leave currently. Crotone’s relegation to Serie C could mean a discount on the option to buy set at €5m but for the time being it appears he will not be bought permanently.
