Michael Essien’s agent hints midfielder will leave Milan after June

Michael Essien’s agent Fabien Piveteau has revealed his client has been in contact with some clubs and might leave AC Milan after June. 

Essien, 32, has been linked with a January move to Turkish side Trabzonspor.

But the powerful French agent has watered down the reports and insists the ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid midfielder will remain at Milan until June.

“Essien will stay at Milan until June. Some teams like him, and he had contacts with other clubs, but he tied to a contract with Milan and wants to stay at the club until June,” he said.

Essien joined Milan from Chelsea in January 2014 and is on his second season with the club.
