Now that Milan have been banned from Europa League football for the next two seasons, there’s a feeling in Italy the Serie A side could face a mini exodus.
Part of it would be to balance the books, but if clubs with more attractive projects come knocking, there’s a chance players could get their heads turned.
One of those who could fall in both camps is Suso, who has a release clause in his Milan contract that would allow him to leave if a €38m offer was tabled, and Chelsea could be a landing spot
This is what Tuttosport are reporting on Friday, who explain the Spaniard will be offered to the Blues once Maurizio Sarri has officially taken over from Antonio Conte.
With the former Napoli manager now on his way to Stamford Bridge, that could end up being in the next couple of days, but the newspaper stress Suso isn’t a priority for the Italian, who sees the arrivals of Daniele Rugani, Gonzalo Higuain and a few others as far more important.
On top of that, Sarri will have to oversee Chelsea’s own exodus, with a few players expected to depart to make way for his own preferences.
First, however, let’s wait for the 59-year-old to be announced, then we’ll start thinking about transfers.
