AC Milan have announced on their website that centre back Matteo Musacchio will undergo surgery in Spain next week for an ankle problem. The defender was left out of the Coppa Italia squad last week due to the same problem. He will undergo keyhole surgery on his left ankle as he has not recovered through regular treatment. No return date has been set.

As we reported here, Musacchio looks likely for an exit this summer with the likes of Valencia and Real Betis watching him. Musacchio has been replaced in the starting eleven by Simon Kjaer since the January transfer window .
