AC Milan veterans Alessandro Nesta, Massimo Ambrosini and Gennaro Gattuso are all expected to be handed new contracts.

Gazzetta dello Sport says the Rossoneri do seem intent to keep the three veterans for at least one more season.

However, the futures of others coming off contract are yet to be decided.

The other seven players whose deals are close to termination are: Flavio Roma, Gianluca Zambrotta, Mario Yepes, Mark Van Bommel, Mathieu Flamini, Clarence Seedorf and Pippo Inzaghi.
