As the Chinese closing nears, Milan are starting to work hard as they want to be prepared for the January transfer window. Fassone and Mirabelli will discuss their upcoming moves with Montella as they will establish their strategies but the Milan coach already seems to know what he wants. 

CLOSE TO LEAVING ?- keisuke Honda seems to be on the departing list as Suso has been a revelation for Milan this season. Honda's contract is set to expire in June 2017 as he doesn't seem to want to discuss a contract renewal. Honda wants to play and Milan would save 6 months of salary, this is why a departure seems likely. Shanghai SIPG are in pole position as they are the only team who have had concrete talks for the player. Honda would prefer to wait and see if he receives offers from Europe (especially the Premier league or la Liga). Luiz Adriano is another player who's future is uncertain. He hasn't been playing a lot and Lapadula (other than Bacca) now seems to be preferred by Montella. He already refused a CSKA Moscow offer but his agent is working with Bundesliga clubs. Milan could get 5-7 million euros from his sale and they would also save a lot of salary money. 

GOODBYE? - Vangioni hasn't played at all yet for Milan as Sevilla, Genoa and Palermo have interest in the Argentine wing-back. He would like to be sold since he wants to play but a loan is also possible in his case. Gabriel is another player who hasn't played yet for Milan this year and according to sources, the player wants to leave in January. He also is looking for a team willing to offer him some playing time. The last two players who might leave Milan are Rodrigo Ely and Andrea Bertolacci. Ely hasn't played at all since his injury last season and Milan will be looking to find a club who can allow him to find his form back (in Serie A or Serie B). The same can be said of Bertolacci who has been injured for a few months now. Milan paid 20 million euros for him so they now have to decide whether they want to keep him or let him leave on loan as they want him to gain his confidence back. Because of his high salary, if he does leave on loan, Milan will likely pay half of his wages.
Milan are working towards improving their team and if some of these players leave, this would allow Milan to save a lot of money and they could then invest easier on other new players.
