Let’s see who could leave the club next summer and who could be offer a contract renewal in the next few weeks.
CHRISTIAN ABBIATI – The oldest player in Milan’s roster will retire next June after 374 appearances with the club. The 38-year-old shot-stopper will join the backroom staff becoming one of the Rossoneri’s goalkeeper coaches.
PHILIPPE MEXES – The Frenchman put pen to paper on a one-year contract extension last summer, before being linked with a Fiorentina move. Mexes is on a € 1.5 million deal per year at the club and Milan can exercise an option for one more year contract extension. Adriano Galliani and Sinisa Mihajlovic will evaluate whether to renew the 33-year-old’s contract in the next few weeks. As calciomercato.com understands, the player is more likely to leave the club in June rather than next January.
CRISTIAN ZAPATA – The former Udinese star is finally happy at the club, but Milan will listen to any offers for the 29-year-old, who is chased by Serie A, La Liga and some Premier League clubs. In case Milan won’t find an agreement for Zapata’s sale, they could decide to held contract renewal talks. The Colombian International’s stay, by the way, does not appear to be a priority for Sinisa Mihajlovic.
ANTONIO NOCERINO - The product of Juventus academy is not on the manager’s good book and he is set for January exit. Trouble is, his € 1.9 million wage at the club might scare off the relegation candidates Bologna and Carpi who are interested in Nocerino’s services. Sampdoria have also set sights on the 30-year-old, who could accept to leave San Siro with and adequate buyout offer.
RICCARDO MONTOLIVO – The club eager to extend the captain’s € 3.5 million a year contract expiring in June. Montolivo is happy in Milan also because of Sinisa Mihajlovic’s trust on him. A meeting with the player’s entourage is already in Adrian Galliani’s agenda for the next month.
