Journalist now surprised at the departure of key AC Milan star

Sky journalist Alessandro Boban has reexamined how Giacomo Bonaventura was permitted to depart AC Milan on a free transfer.

During an interview with Milan Live, Boban attempted to explain why Bonaventura’s time at Milan ended the way it did, but he couldn’t.


Bonaventura has risen to prominence as a result of his excellent play at Fiorentina under Vincenzo Italiano and his goal for Italy against Malta after being recalled to the squad for the first time in three years.

Bonaventura joined Milan from Atalanta in 2014 for €5.3 million and was a hardworking and trustworthy player for six seasons. He appeared in 184 games and scored 35 goals while also assisting on 30 others.

Milan eventually let him leave on a free transfer to Fiorentina, which was a surprising move. Boban attempted to explain what had occurred.

“At the time, I didn’t explain my decision to myself, but I thought Bonaventura could suit Milan technically.” Even now, I can’t describe it, and he probably can’t either. “Every time we ask this question, Bonaventura himself has no definitive answer,” he remarked.

“On the one hand there was a team that wanted to deprive itself of the player for market reasons, and on the other hand there is this boy who instead loves Milan deeply because he is a Milan fan.”
