Jose Mauri will look to find space at Empoli, who don’t have a buy-out option.
The midfielder joined the Rossoneri last season after Parma went bankrupt but didn’t find space under Sinisa Mihajlovic.
And although he was used under Cristian Brocchi, he chose to leave Milan this summer as he doesn’t want to spend another season on the bench.
“Empoli FC announces that it has bought on temporary basis, the player Jose Mauri of AC Milan until June 30, 2017,” the Tuscan club wrote on their twitter.
Empoli do not have a buy-out clause so the 20-year-old Mauri will return to the squad of Milan next summer.
“It’s my desire to play that has led me to Empoli and it’s the right choice for me because I need to play,” Mauri told Sky Italia. “It’s always a disappointment to greet people you’ve worked with for a year but I think it’s just a ‘see you later’.
“If I’ll be like Suso and Niang (who peviously left on loan and are now starters)? My goal is to play, do well and have a more important role next year at Milan.” Best of luck to Mauri in this new adventure!
