Yepes confirms Milan exit

Mario Yepes confirmed he is leaving Milan “by mutual consent” and is likely to return to Colombia.

The 36-year-old defender is out of contract on June 30 and will not be renewing his deal with the Rossoneri.

“For now I am focused on preparing well for a good season. This is why we decided by mutual consent to leave Milan,” he explained.

“I had the opportunity to continue at Milan, but I want to play more consistently so that I can be in the best form for the World Cup next year, assuming we qualify.”

Yepes has been heavily linked with a return to Colombia at club Millionarios.
