It appears that Giacomo Bonaventura has said goodbye to AC Milan after over six years spent as a Rossoneri player.
Based on Saturday’s reactions after the game, it did appear as though Bonaventura will say goodbye to the Rossoneri after six seasons, with 183 official appearances and 35 goals.
The 30-year-old came off the bench during the 3-0 win over Cagliari at San Siro to end the season, and was pictured in tears at full-time, clearly believing it was his last game for the club.
Now, the player has seemingly confirmed his exit through a statement on Instagram, in which he thanked everyone connected for the club.
“Thanks. I lived a dream. The years spent at Milan have been an unforgettable experience. I want to thank all the people with whom I shared this fantastic adventure: presidents, managers, coaches, teammates, doctors and physiotherapists. Thanks also to all those who work ‘behind the scenes’ at Milanello, they are the real engine of Milan, thanks to them every day we feel at home, in the family. Thanks to all the Milan fans, who have always supported us, in the best and toughest moments: the roar of San Siro is something special, which I will never forget.”

Ho vissuto un sogno. Gli anni passati al Milan sono stati un’esperienza indimenticabile. Voglio ringraziare tutte le persone con cui ho condiviso questa fantastica avventura: presidenti, dirigenti, allenatori, compagni di squadra, medici e fisioterapisti. Grazie anche a tutti coloro che lavorano “dietro le quinte” a Milanello, sono loro il vero motore del Milan, grazie a loro ogni giorno ci sentiamo a casa, in famiglia. Grazie a tutti i tifosi milanisti, che ci hanno sempre sostenuto, nei momenti belli e in quelli più duri: il boato di San Siro è qualcosa di speciale, che non dimenticherò mai. Sarete sempre nel mio cuore !!
