AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari, looks set to leave the club after being left out of the squad for Saturday’s Serie A match away to Palermo at his own request, his agent Federico Pastorello said on Friday.
“Muntari has asked not to be picked, given that he is not in the club’s plans for next season. Milan have given the okay,” Pastorello said on Twitter.
The Ghanaian, who is in his third season at Milan and has one more year to run on his contract, captained the team against Juventus in early February when he was heavily criticized for his performance.
He has been left on the bench for four of the five games for which he has been available since then.
The 30-year-old has not played for his country since being sent home from last year’s World Cup for indiscipline alongside colleague, Kevin-Prince Boateng.
