The midfielder has been linked with Wolves ahead of the winter market and was dropped for defeat to Juventus.

But Massara says, "We are talking about a technical decision.

The coach saw that Kessie was going through a difficult period.

This week he wasn't able to train at his full capacity and he also had some minor physical issues.

(Stefano) Pioli decided to not go with him for this match, but we are convinced that Franck will be able to get back to being the player we all know very soon."

He stated, "I was a Milan fan, unfortunately, then I got better. I became smarter growing up. Maldini was my favourite player.

"I have a twin brother, he was a Juve fan and I had to go against him and be Milan. Can you imagine how happy he was when Juve bought me when I was 20 years old?

"When I moved here I immediately fell in love with the club, and now I think it's difficult to find a bigger Juve fan on this earth than me."

Mario Giuffredi has revealed as many six clubs tried to sign Conti over the past summer.

"Over the summer, he [Conti] had offers from Parma, Werder Bremen, Crystal Palace, SPAL and other teams, at least five or six of them, but he insisted on staying at Milan," told Milan News.

"If he's a right-back, he must always be played as one. He played as a right-sided defender in a back three against Lecce and Roma.

"He needs to play in his correct position."

MLS Commissioner Don Garber admits they expect the Swede to join Milan when his deal expires next month.

But Rossi told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I don't know if he is likely to return. He is a player who has had an outstanding career, but he cannot solve Milan's problems.

"They put a patch on a hole but the water comes from many others. He would not be an investment useful for the future but only for the next six months. So what's the benefit? Yes, he can give the team something, but Milan has many problems."

Ronaldo was visibly upset when hooked by Juve coach Maurizio Sarri on 55 minutes for Paulo Dybala, who ultimately proved the matchwinner on Sunday. The Portuguese stormed down the race and reportedly left the stadium before the final whistle.

Capello fumed, "Cristiano is not well and removing him from the field was fair. It took personality to make that change, but he won the game.

"That he has not sat on the bench and that he has said bad words to Sarri does not leave a good image of Cristiano.

"We must also be a champion in down moments. The truth is that Ronaldo has been without three years haggling anyone."

Finally, the coach explained how he would have acted in Sarri's place: "I would have scolded him, saying that we have to respect our teammates."

"Cristiano is a champion, it is normal that he is angry at the time of substitution. I am sure that in the decisive moments of the season he will still make the difference."

Off contract in June, Matic is a target for Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte, having worked with him at Chelsea.

And for his part, the midfielder is keen to test himself in Serie A after realising he's not in the long-term plans of United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer.

However, Inter won't get a clear run at the veteran, with Milan also keen, says Tuttosport.

The Rossonero are preparing to sell Franck Kessie in January and see Matic as a cut-price replacement.

The teenage midfielder has been one of the big stories of this Ligue 1 season so far.

Barcelona have already lodged enquiries with Rennes president Olivier Letang about Camavinga, as have AC Milan.

And L'Equipe says United are also watching the youngster's progress this season.

United scouts were present for Rennes' Europa League defeat to FC Cluj last week with Camavinga their prime focus.

The 17 year-old Angolan-born midfielder is set to internationally commit to France.

United have been linked with a return for their former striker Ibrahimovic, who will become a free agent next month when his spell with MLS club LA Galaxy ended.

TMW says MLS commissioner Don Graber has claimed Ibrahimovic is already on his way to another former club, AC Milan.

But United are ready to battle Milan for the services of the 38-year-old Swede.

Ibrahimovic left United for LA Galaxy in 2018 and has scored 29 goals in two seasons for the MLS side.

Paulo Dybala came off the bench to hit the winner.

Sarri said, I liked the spirit of the team, but we have to improve immensely in terms of quality, as we made too many mistakes, gave the ball away cheaply and opened up spaces for Milan. The hunger and determination to win is what kept us going.

Milan had shots on goal, but they were almost all efforts from outside the penalty area. They have impressive passing quality, played clearly above their average performance level of this season and have strong technique.

Gonzalo Higuain isn't scoring as much as he did in the past, but he is working hard to help the defence, combines better with his teammates and is always ready for the assist."
