AC Milan cool interest in Carney Chukwuemeka

AC Milan have been linked with a move for 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka this summer.

According to a report by TEAMtalk, Serie A giants AC Milan have now decided to abandon the pursuit of highly-rated Chelsea midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka this summer.

Chukwuemeka is valued at £40 million by Chelsea, with the youngster having a release clause in his contract. However, the Italian giants will not want to spend that kind of money on the young player. The Rossoneri need to improve their squad this summer, but they are in need of established players who can come in and help them compete at the highest level.

While there is no doubt that the Chelsea prospect could develop into a top-class player in the coming seasons, he is certainly not worth £40 million right now. In addition, Chelsea did not want to accept a loan exit for the 20-year-old.

What next for Chukwuemeka?

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea decide to keep him at Stamford Bridge next season. He could develop into a key player for the club in the coming seasons with the right guidance and coaching. However, he needs ample first team exposure to continue his development. Perhaps, sending him out on loan would be ideal for all parties.

Chelsea are unlikely to be able to recoup £40 million for the English prospect anytime soon. The opportunity to join a club like AC Milan would have been quite exciting for the player. But the Serie A are unlikely to be able to afford him unless Chelsea lower their demands.

AC Milan have not been at their best in recent seasons. They will look to bounce back strongly and get back to the top of Italian football once again. It remains to be seen whether they can bring in the right editions in the coming weeks.

Pursuing talented young players like Chukwuemeka is always a sustainable way of building the squad. But Milan need to focus on performing in the present as well. Achieving the right balance between experience and youth will be crucial to their performances next season.

Chelsea are well stocked in the midfield unit, and they will not be able to provide Chukwuemeka with ample game time next season. The youngster might get opportunities in the cup games, but he needs more chances in order to truly improve as a player. Going out on loan would be ideal for him, and the midfielder should push for a summer exit.
