AC Milan, Paqueta the only midfielder to stay, Kessie and Bakayoko can leave

Today's edition of Gazzetta dello Sport analyzed the future of AC Milan's midfield. At the moment, the only certainty is Lucas Paqueta's presence at the club next season. But it is still unclear who will accompany the Brazilian starlet in the middle of the field next season.

Jose Mauri, Andrea Bertolacci and Riccardo Montolivo will leave the club, as their contracts expire at the end of the season. The first mentioned had several positive moments but could not earn a renewal, while the other two were virtually frozen away from the team.

These three departures will allow the club to save 10.6 million euros gross in terms of salaries. But that is not all because Bakayoko's salary can also be added to these. The Frenchman, despite an overall positive season, will not be redeemed, because 35 million is considered too much by the management.

Meanwhile, the future of Kessie and Biglia remains to be evaluated and is closely linked to the end-of-season results. The fifty million guaranteed with Champions League qualification could change Milan's prospects and allow the Rossoneri to evaluate any offers.

As for Kessie, his profile has room for growth and could be used to monetize both now and in the future. Biglia's situation is different. The Argentine does not reflect the ideal identikit for Gazidis' line but his experience could affect his future. The former Lazio man still has a year left in his contract and Milan could start negotiations for a renewal with a lower salary.
