8 players who are under contract with Milan will be in Russia for the world’s most prestigious prize, although that also includes new signings Pepe Reina, Ivan Strinić, as well as Carlos Bacca.

It was a complicated season for Milan with ups and downs, and while Gennaro Gattuso and most of the players can now rest and get ready for the next year, 8 men who are under contract with the Rossoneri will be in Russia to play for the World Cup.

Among those 8 men, you can find Carlos Bacca, who said he wants to stay at Villarreal but is still a Milan player, and he will be together with Cristian Zapata and Colombia, and new signings Pepe Reina and Ivan Strinić. Reina and Spain are in the same group as André Silva and Portugal, while Strinić & Nikola Kalinić will try to beat Lucas Biglia’s Argentina.

The full list of called-up players and their matches with dates and times is below:

According to a report, Montolivo is seeking for a termination of contract with Milan as he wants a new adventure

If it means Loca stays and is given more time then thank you captain Montolivo for your service and loyalty

Regardless I hope he leaves. Montolivo has done absolutely nothing special at Milan since his arrival. Another player who overstayed his time at Milan. Good riddance! Addios! Ciao! arrivederci! Hasta luego! a bientot! Au revior!

I hope once again Andre Silva will prove himself as a deadly striker and be ready for next season with new spirit….he is still very young anyway, and Milan is his first club abroad…

he scored again for Portugal. He will leave Milan if the management doesn’t show some faith.

Interesting Full Article by Rai Sports of “Who owns Milan?” Investigative programme Report asked some very serious questions on Yonghong Li’s Milan takeover. “Nobody knows who the real owner of Milan is.” The Chinese businessman bought the club from Silvio Berlusconi in April 2017 for €740m, but was only able to do so thanks to a loan worth €303m from US hedge fund Elliott Management.

Nothing interesting. Everybody knows that Li is not the real owner. Just a front or smokescreen. We will never know who the real owner is

Silva scores again for Portugal. At Milan he can’t play at all. Don’t understand our muppet management. Hope he has an incredible World Cup so the muppets in charge of milan can hide themselves in shame!!

Romagnoli signed an extension until 2022!!! Thank god hopefully that crushes reports of a move to juve. Mirabelli and gattuso were in the stands yesterday and gave the go ahead to jegotiate with depay. Also noting that if we remain in europa milan will go all out to sign morata and if we dont our plan b is to swap both falcao and silva out on loan. I like both ideas there. Can u imagine an attack of depay morata suso or calhanoglu. Somehow get calhanoglu into the line up playing more central like a 4 2 3 1. Only… Read more »
