The transfer windows has officially opened!
It is now that we witness the departures of two veterans, Massimo Ambrosini and Mario Yepes and a talent gone bad, Bojan Krkic.
The 22-year-old Spanish striker last summer joined Milan on a season-long loan from Roma, but failed to make an impact at the Rossoneri. He ended up making 19 appearances in Serie A, scoring on three occasions.
Milan have opted against signing Krkic permanently, as his spell has officially ended on 30 June. As far as the future is concerned, it is highly unlikely that after luring Brazilian superstar Neymar, Barcelona will keep their former youngster in the squad. English sides Newcastle and Liverpool, alongside Hamburg are believed to be interested in his services.
Meanwhile, Ambrosini has said farewell after stunning 18 years with the Rossoneri. However, the 36-year-old midfielder is not going to leave Italy, as he is expected to continue career at Fiorentina.
“We’re only waiting for Fiorentina to call us”, Ambrosini’s representative, Moreno Roggi, told Lady Radio.
In addition, former Chievo veteran Mario Yepes is leaving Milan “by mutual consent” and is very likely to return to Colombia. The Colombian captain, who is aged the same as Ambrosini, was also out of contract on June 30.
He is expected to join Millionarios, the side which Real Madrid thrashed 8-0 last year. “We have been in contract with Yepes the past days. He is going to join us the following days”, the President of the Colombian club told RCN2.
Il Corriere dello Sport say that Santos has agreed to lure Robinho for €8,5 million, as Milan is going to use the funds to get CSKA’s Keisuke Honda.
Talks with Sampdoria are set to be unlocked, with CEO Adriano Galliani setting up a meeting with Poli’s agent. However, the thing that could be the proving point is Flamini’s future, which is still up in the air.
