Romano: ‘One of the priorities’ – Milan’s summer plan pushes Florenzi towards exit

By Oliver Fisher -

Alessandro Florenzi’s time at AC Milan could come to an end this summer with the club targeting a potential replacement, according to a report.

The appointment of Paulo Fonseca as the new head coach has put Florenzi’s future in doubt. He had some difficult days while at Roma with the Portuguese, which eventually resulted in him leaving his boyhood club to join Valencia and PSG on loan before ending up at Milan.

According to what is being reported by Fabrizio Romano, Florenzi could leave Milan this summer despite the fact that he has another season left on his deal, which runs until June 2025.

The Rossoneri are already looking for new right-back to join the club, and it is ‘one of the priorities this summer’. That would in theory reduce the playing time for the Italian, and could lead to a parting of ways.

Florenzi was a ‘reserve’ option last season and the back-up to Davide Calabria, but he was still used in 40 games by Stefano Pioli, while his experience and set piece taking are seen as valuable by many.

Fonseca will likely make an assessment when preseason begins in six days, knowing that the arrival of a target like Emerson Royal or Tiago Santos could limit the usage of the Italian.

  1. We all know he’s leaving because of fonseca. We’re doing out with the old in with the new. Almost never works like imagined tho

    1. He’s no spring chicken. How long are you trying to keep him? Fonseca uses pacy wingbacks. Florenzi is anything but and Calabria needs stiff competition to improve which also ins’t Florenzi. Plus, there’s the Kalulu mystery.

  2. He earns 3 mil a year and is 33 years old not so sure it will be an easy feat to skip him out not that i would mind keeping him for the next year until his contract expires.

    1. If we really do want Abraham, I wonder if we could orchestrate a Flo + € deal?

      I really like the guy. He plays with both joy and intensity. But, seems clear there is no desire to reconcile.

      1. I always liked florenzi even early in his career i was hoping he would join us but i cant see why roma would want him back now and not really sure we should go for tammy either.

  3. He is not a stellar right back anymore, but he is experienced, he is Italian (UEFA regulations), he is a leader figure and he is a fighter. Offensively in our team he is second only to Theo among the defenders. Also he can play as a LB albeit he isn’t good there.
    We will have a LOT to lose by pushing him out.

  4. I expect Pobega (a shame) and Florenzi (not bothered) to both leave, but they will need replacing with Italians.

    We are going to end up having to register kids who would be eligible anyway, just to meet the UCL criteria at this rate.

  5. So… Dumping Florenzi who gives 7-10 assists per season for a 20M€ player with max one or two assists per year and can’t defend? Sounds like a f*ng masterpiece. AGAIN.
