Three AC Milan players are not going to be a part of the Serie A opener against Bologna as they have not been asked to travel with the squad, a report claims.
As has been reported by our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, Divock Origi, Alexis Saelemaekers and Fode Ballo-Toure have all not been called up by Stefano Pioli for the first match of the season.
Milan get their campaign underway on Monday night away at Bologna with the game kicking off at 20:45 CEST, but not everyone is invited.
The three players in question have all been heavily linked with moves away from Milan this summer and Saelemaekers could find himself moving to Real Betis if they act on their interest.
Origi is looking less likely to leave given he wants to go to the Premier League and there is not currently enough interest in him, but that has not stopped Pioli from excluding him from the squad.
Ballo-Toure has looked extremely close to leaving for many weeks but a deal has not yet been struck with Werder Bremen.
