AC Milan must keep Alessio Romagnoli at all costs amid Chelsea interest

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson address the day's rumour mill.

If speculation is to be believed, Chelsea's search for a new defender this summer has taken them from Naples to Turin, and now it appears as though Milan is the latest stop on Antonio Conte's recruitment tour.

The Premier League giants had a bid "in excess of €25 million" rejected by AC Milan for centre-back Alessio Romagnoli this week, although they could yet continue to test the resolve of the Rossoneri between now and transfer deadline day on Aug. 31. It's a concerning time for Milan...

Carlos Bacca makes statement as AC Milan off to winning start vs. Torino

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti assesses the importance of Carlos Bacca for AC Milan and whether he can carry the team.

AC Milan kicked off the Vincenzo Montella era with a dramatic 3-2 win over Torino on Sinisa Mihajlovic's return to the San Siro on Sunday.

Season preview: Juventus favoured, but Roma and Napoli will contend

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.

Following the signings of Mehdi Benatia, Dani...

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti evaluates the state of AC Milan and Inter Milan ahead of the Serie A season.

As with any new season, there's a great sense of optimism for the campaign ahead. AC Milan have experienced significant changes this summer, but only time will tell as to whether or not they lead to long-awaited success.

Last season ultimately ended in disappointment. A seventh-place finish in Serie A combined with defeat in the Coppa Italia final saw both Sinisa Mihajlovic and Cristian Brocchi pay the price and lose their jobs -- the former in April and the latter at the end of the season -- while...
