Antonio Cassano will have showdown talks with Milan before the end of the week that may result in his San Siro exit.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Italian is concerned that he is not at the centre of the tactical project being employed by boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Although the club are shy of the services of Zlatan Ibrahimovic following his sale to Paris Saint-Germain, Allegri has high hopes for the development of Stephen El Shaarawy and the return of Alexandre Pato.
Cassano will reportedly ask for some assurances ahead of the 2012-13 campaign. Should he not be satisfied with the Diavolo’s answers then he may ask for a transfer.
Cassano has spoken of his desire to re-join Sampdoria even if the newly promoted outfit have made it clear that his name is not on their transfer wish-list.
