Cassano could still leave Milan

Antonio Cassano is again being linked with a move away from Milan after Italy boss Cesare Prandelli issued him with a warning.

Prandelli made it clear yesterday that from now on he would only be able to call-up players who were featuring regularly with their club sides.

"From August those individuals who don't play that often will find it tough to be selected for Italy," noted the tactician.

"Cassano may have to start using his elbows to find his space in the Milan team. In general, players lose their self belief when they don't play that often."

The Italian is not assured of a regular starting shirt at San Siro given the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho, Alexandre Pato and Pippo Inzaghi.

As a result, it is being suggested that he may move on this summer despite Milan and the player's agent insisting only last week that they would continue their relationship.

There seem to be two possible destinations for Cassano should he decide to leave the Stadio Meazza.

Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic is understood to have asked his club about the possibility of netting him.

Napoli could be an option too, especially if Milan really do make a bid for the Azzurri's Marek Hamsik.
