It is becoming very likely that a host of Milan players will leave the San Siro by the end of the season. Although nothing has been confirmed, the feeling is that long serving midfielder Andrea Pirlo and play maker Ronaldinho together with Nesta will leave the Italian giants.
So with Inzaghi out for the rest of the season and Pato’s consistent injury woes, Milan will yet again be doing a lot of spending in the summer. Dinho’s current contract expires at the end of this season and on a 7.5 million Euro annual pay, Milan could be tempted to cut thier association with the aging star.
Fellow midfielder Andrea Pirlo is also rumoured to be leaving Milan. Pirlo is experiencing one of his worst spells in the famous red and black striped jersey with his position in the team coming under significant threat from Robinho, Flamini and Boateng.
Nesta on the other hand is firmly believed to have made up his mind concerning his future and only time will tell if he decides to continue his career with a different club or if he entirely calls it quits.
For Pirlo a move to Chelsea would be the only possible option. The Italy international had a close relationship with former coach Carlo Ancelotti and the Chelsea boss has always maintained his affection for Pirlo.
Milan had a 12 million Euro offer for Cagliari’s rising star Alessandro Matri turned down earlier last week. Milan have been keeping a close eye on the player and had an intention to snap him up as a replacement for the injured Inzaghi however, they were not successful.
Inzaghi’s injury only further complicates things for the striker as he is also rumoured to be leaving the club. Inzaghi even expressed his frustrations at not playing more and was happy to note that a few clubs were still interested in his services.
As hard as it might be to imagine a team without Pirlo, Nesta, Inzaghi and Ronaldinho, Milan fans should prepare themselves to expect the worst. Moreover, its time new and fresh talent emerged to further the club’s amazing legacy.
