AC Milan are preparing for yet another revolution this summer following a disappointing season, with Zvone Boban’s departure just the start.
However, this does not only mean at a technical and managerial level, but also from the point of view of the squad. Owners Elliott Management – fronted by CEO Ivan Gazidis – have their own idea about how they want the playing staff to look, involving a youth-oriented approach and players on low salaries.
According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.it), it cannot be ruled out that some surprise names are allowed to leave this summer if big offers arrive.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the main candidates as his contract at the club expires in June, with no news either way yet regarding a potential renewal. Simon Kjaer is also only here until the end of the season as it stands, but there is a €2.5m option to buy as it stands.
Exits are not excluded for three other high-profile players including Gianluigi Donnarumma, whose future hangs in the balance as his deal runs out in 2021, as does Ante Rebic’s loan with the Croatian’s permanence not a guarantee.
The paper also claims that captain Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez are two players for whom some big offers may arrive, but it will be up to Elliott to decide if they are irresistible.
