The Ghana international looks set to be a free agent this summer after his agent confessed a new deal at the San Siro was unlikely.
The 32-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer and with no negotiations over a renewal, Fabrizio Ferrari has confessed that his client could well be looking for a new club in the near future.
“It is difficult to predict what will happen in June.”
Essien was on Chelsea’s books for nine years but left to join the Rossoneri on a short-term deal last January. He also spent a season on loan at Real Madrid under former boss Jose Mourinho.
Since moving to Italy the African midfielder has only started eight Serie A games, with others preferred in the club’s central midfield.
