AC Milan director Umberto Gandini has once again confirmed that the club will not be opening contract talks with 36-year-old midfielder Clarence Seedorf until the end of the season. The Dutchman is out of contract at the end of the season and it is widely expected that he will sign for an MLS club in the summer. Despite being 36 years old, Clarence Seedorf has been a major influence on the AC Milan first-team, which has prompted many to suggest that Milan should retain him at least for another season. Milan have developed the reputation for having a number of older players in the squad.

They tried to change it in the summer by letting Andrea Pirlo leave the club after 10 years of service. However, it has proven to be a major disastrous decision after the 32-year-old midfielder has been in inspired form for Juventus this season. He has been the main criteria for Juventus winning the title this season, while he has also helped the club to an undefeated season in the league. Hence, it is thought that Milan will be discussing terms with Seedorf at the end of the season so as to keep the 36-year-old for one more season. Gandini confirmed recently that such talks will not take place during the season.

“He is a great player and a wonderful person but we have not discussed the renewal of his contract with him. Seedorf’s contract ends in July, as do the contracts of nine other players. And we have not been talking to any of them. We will only do this from May 14 onwards. Only then will we know if Seedorf will still be at Milan, or if he will be released to join another team,” the Rossoneri official told in an interview given to Lancenet.
