AC Milan have confirmed that Massimo Ambrosini is able to leave the club on a free transfer this summer. The rossoneri captain has been with the club since 1995, after starting his career at Cesena. He inherited the armband from club legend Paolo Maldini at the start of the 2009-2010 season.
At 36 years old, the midfielder has had a good, long career. During his 18 years at Milan, Ambrosini collected numerous honors. The rossoneri won the scudetto four times, most recently in 2010-2011. They also won the Coppa Italia once and, perhaps most importantly, won the Champions League twice, in 2003 and 2007. He also earned 35 caps with the azzurri.
But despite his successful career, it seems Ambro is not quite ready to hang up his boots -- nor is he set to go play in Major League Soccer. Currently West Ham are in talks with Ambrosini over bringing the midfielder to the Premier League.
