AC Milan among teams interested in Michael Bradley

Could the USMNT captain go back to Europe?

Michael Bradley is highly respected in Italy and Serie A giants AC Milan are one of a few teams interested in bringing him back to the league in the winter.

It seems like every few months the USMNT captain is linked with a move back to the Italian first division. Bradley spent four years there between his time at Chievo Verona and AS Roma. Teams interested in the past have included Sampdoria and Fiorentina.

Now two more well-known Serie A clubs are mulling over the possibility of bringing him back to the league where he had a ton of success as a professional.

AC Milan and Bologna are the two teams entering the fray this time according to SI’s Grant Wahl. Both are reportedly interested in bringing Bradley over in January on loan.

It seems highly unlikely that the 29-year-old transfers away from Toronto FC considering he’s one of the highest paid players in the league and wouldn’t be able to get a comparable salary elsewhere.

This news is rather interesting considering timing. It was announced earlier this week that his father and former coach, Bob Bradley, is taking over Premier League club Swansea City. Could the two reunite in the English top flight for a spell? It would be very interesting to see.

Who knows if these rumors will actually lead to anything, but it would be good to see Bradley playing in Europe again, even if it’s just for a short time.
