Van Ginkel agent laughs off AC Milan link

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Marco van Ginkel hasn't been named to the Chelsea squad yet this season, missing both the Burnley and the Leicester wins. And that means a) a disappointed young midfielder and b) transfer rumours. The Italian media was abuzz with reports that van Ginkel might be heading to AC Milan on loan in search of playing time ... but his agent has dismissed that rumour. With some prejudice, too:

The rumors about a possible departure of Marco to AC Milan do not make sense and are based on nothing. There is, at least for now, nothing going on around Marco.

Note that Mr. Jansen isn't ruling out a future move for van Ginkel -- yesterday he said that he'd need to discuss the situation with Chelsea should van Ginkel continue to be sidelined, but my suspicion is that Chelsea will keep him around and look to use him as part of the rotation once we get into the more difficult part of the schedule. At any rate, the AC Milan stuff is hereby debunked.
