How very apropos on a Throwback Thursday: Kevin-Prince Boateng appears set to return to Milan. Various reports have suggested that the former Milan midfielder will sign with Milan in January, after his current contract with German club Schalke expires. Boateng has trained with Milan since October, and has been playing in friendly matches for the Rossoneri since then.
The Ghanian midfielder previously played for Milan between 2010 and 2013. During his time with the Rossoneri, Boateng collected 100 caps and 17 goals while establishing himself as an important member of the squad. Boateng was sold to Schalke in 2013, and made 54 appearances with the German club, scoring 7 goals in the process. In May of 2015, Boateng was suspended indefinitely from Schalke after a loss to FC Koln as a result of "poor behaviour".
While Boateng is certainly not the same player he was during his first spell at Milan, he may be able to improve Milan's midfield. During his first stint at Milan, Boateng became a fan favourite for his electric style of play and his penchant for scoring big goals. His dance skills weren't too shabby either. It remains to be seen what he will be able to contribute to the squad on the second go-around, but he has obviously been able to convince manager Sinisa Mihajlovic to give him a shot.
