The Ghana international is keen on a move abroad and his agents held lengthy talks with the Serie A club on Thursday as they look to agree terms. The 31-year-old was also considered by West Ham as they continue to weigh up midfield options.
The midfielder is expected to be released on a free transfer and will join the Rossoneri on an 18-month deal.
A statement on the club’s official website, said: “Just turned 31 and with a CV including domestic and Champions League wins, as well as victory with the Ghana national side, Michael Essien is expected to land at Malpensa Airport (Milan) this evening.”
Michael Essien is one of my favorite all time Chelsea players. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us and best of luck for the World Cup, Bison.
