After pulling out of negotiations with Manchester city striker Carlos Tevez, AC Milan have announced that Italian striker Antonio Cassano is likely to return to training within the next few days. Antonio Cassano’s future at AC Milan was thrown into doubt after the Italian suffered a heart problem at the start of the season.
It has lead to hospitalisation and there are also rumours that AC Milan would sign Carlos Tevez in order to supplement the loss of the striker. AC Milan even sent their CEO in order to discuss a potential move for Carlos Tevez, but it was recently revealed that the two clubs could not reach a deal.
Now, AC Milan have been boosted by the news that their star striker Antonio Cassano is likely to resume training over the next few days. It has been quite clear that AC Milan are not prepared to take any chances on the future of Antonio Cassano, and as a result of it, extensive tests have been carried out on the status of the Italian. It seems that he has come out of these tests with flying colours, which has meant that he is now given the permission to resume training just as the crucial Champions League knockout stages will begin over the next few weeks.
“Milan would like to announce that during the course of this week, Antonio Cassano underwent neorological tests with the team of professor Nereo Bresolin and Yvan Torrente and cardiological tests with professor Mario Carminati. Both tests showed positive results, so Antonio Cassano will start progressive individual athletic training tomorrow [Saturday],” a club statement read. AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has said that he is hoping that he has the striker available for selection soon. AC Milan have also said that they will not be looking to sign another striker now.
