Mateo Musacchio was once again left out of AC Milan’s matchday squad despite the fact that he is back from injury and fully fit.
Multiple sources are claiming that it is a technical choice by head coach Stefano Pioli who clearly sees him as having no part of his plans this season, given his contract expires in June 2021.
According to the latest from MilanLive, there are now two hypotheses on the table regarding the Argentine’s future.
One of them is similar to the Giacomo Bonaventura and Lucas Biglia situations, where offers arrived for both in January 2020 and in June 2020 their deal was expiring.
Instead, Milan decided to keep them until the end of their contracts as the club preferred to let them expire and lose them for zero rather than making a loss on the balance sheet.
Therefore, Musacchio could be kept and made available for the cause in case of injury crisis.
The second scenario is that if a new defender arrives in January and offers arrive for Musacchio, the management may consider selling the former Villarreal man to boost cash flow.
