Cassano stays, Legrottaglie goes

Antonio Cassano's contract until 2014 “will be respected,” said his agent, but Milan look set to release Nicola Legrottaglie.

Vice-President Adriano Galliani continues his marathon talks over contract renegotiations with much of the squad after the season came to a close.

Today Cassano's representative was at the club headquarters and as he left spoke to Sky Sport Italia.

“There are no problems,” said Giuseppe Bozzo. “Cassano's contract will be respected until 2014 with the reciprocal and extreme satisfaction of both parties.”

The current deal does not expire until June 2014, so there is no need for an extension right now, but the comment rules out reports of a summer move to Fiorentina.

However, it is reported that Legrottaglie will not be offered a new contract, having played just 33 minutes since his January loan move from Juventus.

A switch to newly-promoted Siena has been suggested.
