Let’s analyze the three probably situations with Milan goalkeepers…
Il Giorno says that Milan veteran Christian Abbiati may not renew Milan contract at the end of the season. As we all know, he’s tied to Milan until 30 June 2013, however it is still uncertain what the future holds.
For that purpose, we bring you the most probable scenarios.
Scenario #1: Abbiati to leave/retire
According to the latest reports, this is very likely to happen. The 35-year-old veteran has been Milan’s starting goalkeeper ever since Dida’s departure in 2010. However, the way things are going this may be his last season at the Italian giant.
His contract is set to expire at the end of season 2012/2013 and if doesn’t renew, retirement is another option.
Scenario #2: Abbiati to be replaced
If Abbiati leaves, there is a chance that another experienced goalkeeper could arrive to replace him.
In the past time, players such as Basel’s Yann Sommer, Liverpool veteran Pepe Reina, former Cagliari ‘keeper Federico Marchetti, Arsenal’s Vito Mannone and Bulgarian highly regarded Nikolay Mihaylov have all been inked with Milan switch.
Scenario #3: No Abbiati replacement
Last but not least, a scenario that will surely make Marco Amelia and Gabriel happy.
If no replacement is found or signed, 2006 World Cup winner and participant Amelia will automatically succeed the starting post. As for and the 2012 Olympic silver medal winner and participant Gabriel will be moved to second choice and normally awarded with vast opportunities to play.
