AC Milan Gearing Up For Seven Departures This Summer

AC Milan's Spanish forward Samu Castillejo (L) and AC Milan's Italian defender Davide Calabria (C) celebrate as AC Milan's Danish defender Simon Kjaer (R) looks on after AC Milan opened the scoring during the Italian Cup (Coppa Italia) semi-final first leg football match AC Milan vs Juventus Turin on February 13, 2020 at the San Siro stadium in Milan.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan have already registered a significant capital gain from the sale to Suso this summer but are looking to off load a lot more dead weight from the squad. 

The report indicates that Milan could sell seven more players significantly trimming the club's massive wage bill. 

The departures of Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura, Ricardo Rodriguez and Pepe Reina will save Milan in excess of 20 million per year in gross wages.

Davide Calabria and Diego Laxaltseem likely to leave with Sevilla and Real Betis interested in the former and Lokomotiv Moscow in the latter. 

Leo Duarte is another defensive name who is a doubt for the next season given his recurring injuries. 

Rade Krunic and Lucas Paqueta could exit the midfield with interest from Torino and Fiorentina respectively. All in all, it looks to be a summer of reshuffling as Milan look to upgrade their squad whilst lowering the wage bill.
