Milan midfielder Ambrosini bound for West Ham

Massimo Ambrosini is set to leave Milan and is expected to join Premier League side West Ham, Football Italia has reported.

The 36-year-old is out of contract at San Siro this summer and has turned down overtures from Major League Soccer in order to join the Hammers, according to his agent. Moreno Roggi told “ Obviously Massimo wants to continue playing.

There are some negotiations in place and we are evaluating every type of proposal. His preference would be overseas clubs, but if an offer did come in from an Italian side, we would not ignore it completely.

At this moment we are in talks with West Ham, while we have already ruled out Major League Soccer.

Roggi added that the captain’s departure from Milan should not be considered a surprise, as a lack of an approach from the club indicated they saw his time at the club at an end even before vice-president Adriano Galliani confirmed as much earlier this week.

We already knew,” Roggi said. “If Milan had wanted to renew his contract, they would’ve done it a long time ago.

Ambrosini has been a Milan player since 1995, spending the entirety of his senior career with the Rossoneri bar his first season as a professional, which came with Cesena, and a loan spell at Vicenza in 1997/98. He has played almost 500 games for the seven-time European Cup winners.
