AC Milan Transfer News and Rumours Tracker: Week of March 24
With the summer approaching, you can expect AC Milan to have a very eventful transfer campaign.
No one on the entire roster is a certainty to stay for next season, including the coaching staff.
Whoever will be in charge of the Rossoneri will want to stamp his authority on the squad and build a team that's in his image, rather than one that's essentially a leftover from the previous regime.
Here are all the latest rumors and confirmations surrounding possible transfers in and out of the club.
Taarabt in Talks to Stay with Milan
According to Football Italia, Adel Taarabt's agent has been in talks with Milan to work out a deal which would keep the Moroccan in Italy.

Kaka Hints at Exit
In future I’d like to play in America. At the end of the season I’ll talk to Adriano Galliani to understand his ideas and those of the club.
If I was to leave, then I would like a transfer to the United States.

Milan Top Serie A Transfer Revenue

Mancini Doesn't Rule out Milan
The former Inter coach has bounced around various countries in recent years, but opened up to the idea of returning to his home country with a club that was once his main rival domestically.

Balotelli's Exlusion Sign for Future?
Milan's assistant coach Mauro Tassotti has told Sky Sport Italia (via Football Italia) that Mario Balotelli's absence from the Milan starting XI was purely a tactical decision from Clarence Seedorf.
With Balotelli out of the lineup, it's worth wondering if his days with the Rossoneri are numbered.
Balotelli will attract plenty of suitors if he has a positive World Cup with Italy and could be headed for the exit doors at the end of the summer.
