Milan have axed three players ahead of the trip to the United States: Ante Rebic, Fode Ballo-Touré, and Divock Origi. The trio won’t be part of the technical plans moving forward. The club will try to find new homes for them throughout the summer, 90min reports.
The Senegalese fullback seems the closest to switching teams. He’s drawing interest from Nice and Bologna, but his relatively high wages are slowing down the negotiations. Instead, the rumor mill has been quiet for the two forwards.
Origi joined Milan last summer and is set to earn €4M until 2026. Instead, Rebic has been at the club since 2019. His role has progressively shrunk in the past two campaigns due to multiple injuries. He’s tied to the Rossoneri for two more years.
Il Diavolo will take off Friday and face Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus in three friendlies across the pond. Young striker Marko Lazetic is expected to stay home too, as he’ll most likely leave on loan again.
Our Take on the Milan Outcasts
It’s still baffling why Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara brought in Origi in the first place even if it was a free move. The good news for the Rossoneri fans is that the new management is carrying on with the negotiations to onboard new attackers without waiting for these departures, unlike other outfits would do instead.
