Stephan El Shaarawy's AC Milan exit expected but bitterly disappointing

Stephan El Shaarawy scored against AC Milan for Roma in a Serie A meeting last month.

After enjoying a successful loan spell in the second half of last season at Roma, Stephan El Shaarawy made his move to the Italian capital permanent this week as he joined the Giallorossi in a €13 million deal

The 23-year-old scored eight goals in 16 Serie A appearances for Roma last season, and was unsurprisingly delighted to secure a permanent move as he looks ahead to being an important part of Luciano Spalletti's plans moving forward.

Despite the fact it was expected for some...

Mattia De Sciglio back on right path after frustrating AC Milan spell

Japan star Keisuke Honda says he was "not very satisfied" with his performance at AC Milan this season.
Mattia De Sciglio
Mattia De Sciglio has been frustrated in recent years.

Arriving at AC Milan at just 10 years of age in 2002, Mattia De Sciglio has represented the club at various levels and established himself as a shining example of the club's ability to develop young talent.

Having enjoyed initial success with the Primavera squad, he was earmarked as a future star at an early age, and the initial signs were promising when he broke into the senior side in 2011. De Sciglio quickly established himself as a great prospect and a potential symbol of the club given how...

Manuel Pellegrini the wise choice for AC Milan manager

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the issues surrounding AC Milan, including managerial uncertainty and a potential sale.

AC Milan are set for another busy summer, with ongoing talks of an ownership takeover accompanied by a search to appoint a long-term coach ahead of next season.

The deal that brought Cristian Brocchi to the Rosseroni upon Sinisa Mihajlovic's sacking on Apr. 12, 2016 extends till the end of June. It remains to be seen whether he has done enough to carry on in his current role, but there is certainly an argument to be made that the 40-year-old doesn't deserve it.

Brocchi's brief record as...

AC Milan's Chinese takeover needs to herald major changes

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti examines whether AC Milan will be sold before Sept. 1.

While AC Milan have gradually slipped further adrift of their rivals in recent years, the necessity for new investment has become desperately clear. The Serie A giants appear to be making real progress in that regard this summer, with president Silvio Berlusconi edging closer towards selling a majority stake in the club to a Chinese consortium.

Reports this week have suggested that the 79-year-old has given the go ahead for talks to advance and reach a conclusion, with the group of investors securing...

Mario Balotelli's Italy omission latest setback for Milan striker

The ESPN FC crew discuss AC Milan's recent struggles and why Adriano Galliani may be to blame.

It feels as though it has been said a million times before, but Mario Balotelli is facing yet another uncertain summer with regards to his long-term future. After a failed season back with AC Milan, the 25-year-old will watch the European Championship at home this summer, and it's a huge disappointment not to see him involved with the Azzurri.

Almost four years ago, "Super Mario" was busy inspiring Cesare Prandelli's side to a stunning win over Germany in Warsaw. Two first-half goals had the opposition...

AC Milan's poor finishing to blame in Coppa Italia final loss

AC Milan fell 1-0 to Juventus in the Coppa Italia final at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday night, courtesy of an extra-time effort from Alvaro Morata.

Cristian Brocchi's side produced one of their best performances in weeks in Rome, and should have taken advantage of the fact that they were able to dominate the game for large parts.

However, Milan's lack of quality in the final third came back to haunt them, with Morata stepping up with just 10 minutes remaining in extra-time to seal back-to-back...
