Tuttosport: Idea of contract termination emerges as Milan struggle to sell defender

By Oliver Fisher -

A new hypothesis has emerged regarding the future of Andrea Conti as he could now see his contract terminated, according to a report.

The full-back has been out of favour for a while now having joined amid much excitement from Atalanta back in 2017, but his four-year spell with the Rossoneri has been plagued by injuries and general poor form, and he has not been included in the last three matchday squads including the last two preseason games and Monday night’s Serie A opener.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (via MilanLive), the defender was being touted for a potential return to Atalanta but they have instead opted to go for Davide Zappacosta, who officially arrived from Chelsea.

Cagliari and Genoa are both looking for reinforcements for the right defensive lane and could seriously think about Conti, while to facilitate such a possibility the paper claims that a mutual termination of his contract is not to be excluded.

Milan could free Conti by releasing him from his existing contract, which will expire exactly in June 2022, and while the defender asks for severance pay that does not make him lose anything economically, there will be time to discuss.

    Mandzukic is a bigger Milan legend than this fellow

    Well, what a shame We swapped Pessina for this outcast. No idea what were our management thinking back then. No way to sell at least for 1-2 millions?

      They were thinking just like everybody else were — Andrea would become #1 Italy’s right back.

      Which would have happened, if he wouldn’t tore his cruciate ligament on the 2nd match for Milan that got him out for 394 days & eventually ruined his career.

        No doubt he certainly could have become great with us and the same with caldara but in hindsight those two deals has been some of the worst transfers the club has ever made and cost us dearly.
