The director of sport spoke to multiple outlets, including Sky Sport Italia and Tuttomercatoweb.

“We want Alessio Romagnoli to remain for a long time and we are already talking to his agent. We trust all our players can accompany us for a long while yet.

“That also goes for Suso, as let’s not forget, we are talking about Milan here. All the players in the world would love to wear this jersey.

“We want to keep Suso, but he has to have the same desire. If Suso, or anyone else, no longer wanted to wear this jersey, it’d be only right to take an offer into consideration.”

Unlike many of the stars at San Siro, Suso is unusual in that his contract includes a release clause.

“That’s not up to us. I am generally against release clauses, but his agents made a very specific request and so we’re keeping it there. If he wants to go, then he can.”

Kalinic is also reported to be on the market, especially after he was dropped by Coach Gennaro Gattuso for showing a bad attitude in training.

“Nikola is an extraordinary lad and a quality striker,” explained Mirabelli.

“It’s true that he had a few difficulties so far, but Gattuso is his biggest admirer. Nothing happened, he just wants everyone to train to the max, otherwise he won’t call them up. I can guarantee Kalinic is one of the players Gattuso admires the most.”
