Ac Milan talented youngster, Mattia Valoti, who had a pretty poor injury plagued season, apparently find some joy by the end of season as he is being called up into the Italy u-19 setup along with two other youth players, Rodrigo Ely and also Ricardo Piscitelli.

This three players will be used in the Elite round of European under 19 tournament, which sees the Azzurrini facing the likes of Belgium, Spain along with Armenia on Group 7 of the competition. A pretty tough looking drawing indeed for Alberigo Evani's squad, but the three Milan youngsters could very well made their name in the competition.

 In contrast to the departure trend at Ac Milan, veteran defender, Mario Yepes apparently is extending his adventure in the Rossoneri shirt for another year. Although previously being touted as one of those who could be leaving, but a late twist in the camp apparently has allowed the Colombian international to keep playing with the Red and Black squad since there will be many players leaving anyway by the end of this season.

Gattuso Bid Farewell to Milan as Inzaghi Writes His Goodbye

 This season is simply ending in a sad way for Ac Milan as not only they failed to retain their Scudetto title but there will be host of senior players leaving by the end of this season. After Alessandro Nesta confirmed his goodbye, another legend, Gennaro Gattuso, followed his path by confirming that he won't be playing again for the Red and Black squad next season.

Speaking to the press after a meeting with Milan's vice president, Adriano Galliani, earlier today, Gattuso revealed that he doesn't feel there will be much space for him again at the club, so the midfielder decided to give space for new players next summer. The former Italian international also hinted at retiring by stating that in one year, he will return to Milanello and discuss a possible position at the club, not as a player of course. This decision comes only a day after Nesta confirmed his farewell via press conference on Wednesday, a pretty fast development indeed at the Rossoneri headquarter.
