So Milan probably have seven places in their lineup filled, providing that those aforementioned players in the previous slide remain at the club.
So who else is a candidate to start for the Rossoneri?
Well, starting at left-back will probably be Mattia De Sciglio, even though he will face stiff competition from the rejuvenated Kevin Constant.
Allegri reinvented the Guinean international last season as a left-back and he started many games for the Diavoli.
Even if the general consensus surrounding his change of position was marked by trepidation, especially in the big games. Constant held his own and can rely on his excellent physical assets to help him out of trouble when his positional awareness and inexperience in this role is evident.
Mexes' centre-back partner is likely to be Cristian Zapata, who claimed a starting berth last year on loan from Villarreal.
Milan have since moved to sign the Colombian international on a permanent contract and at this stage he will surely beat off competition from Daniele Bonera to continue an ever-improving partnership with his French international teammate.
A new signing is not out of the question and Milan would be wise to strengthen this position in particular.
Barcelona's Carles Puyol and Nice's Renato Civelli are just a couple of candidates to surface on Milan's radar.
The third centre-midfield position is one that could also be filled by a new signing, but there are plenty of options still at the club.
Kevin-Prince Boateng could move back into a more familiar role, as the Ghanaian has struggled to cope with the creative responsibility placed on his shoulders as the team's trequartista.
Mathieu Flamini is looking to remain with Milan after some fine form to finish the season. The Frenchman enjoyed his best run of games and most impressive performances as the former Gunner helped Milan to claim third.
Sulley Muntari would be the other candidate that is currently present in the squad, but if Milan are to be challenging for honours, Allegri should only think about the Ghanaian as a squad player.
Bryan Cristante is one of the most talked about youngsters on the verge of breaking into the Milan first team.
Likened to Montolivo by Galliani, Cristante appears to have that spark that can make the midfield tick. But with such a glaring absence of experience, it is highly unlikely that he will feature in the starting lineup, at least not at this stage.
