Turkish top-flight side Trabzonspor want to sign Ghana midfielder Michael Essien from AC Milan.

According to TuttoSport, AC Milan could cash in for € 4m after signing the former Chelsea anchor man on a free.

Essien’s current deal with the Rossoneri will expire in 2015 and cost the San Siro outfit € 3m per season.

The 31-year-old made seven appearances in the Serie A including three starts.

It does not look like new coach Filipo Inzaghi is interested in using him and could rot on the bench.

    Essien hmmm. I have always felt that his indifferent attitude towards the service of his nation will be his eventual undoing. He is now on the road down and it seems to be a free fall. Unfortunately, most Ghanaian hypocrites and praise-singers who are constantly on sites like this lambasting football authorities (I’m not holding brief for any official) never seem to want to talk about his selfish attitude. Jose Mourinho had him sitting on the bench for ages during his loan spell at Madrid and again when he returned to Chelsea but never once did he refuse to train or even complain about his lack of playtime. Similarly at Milan he spent most of the past season on the bench and he wasn’t able to complain yet when he sat out a match in Brasil; he felt he had been unjustifiable slighted and thus refused to warm up! Doesn’t this attitude smack of disrespect for his own? To make it worse, in one breath he affirms his unflinching support for the unacceptable behaviour of Muntari and KPB and in another, he officially writes to Ghanaians to allow officials to investigate the issues arising from the Brasil debacle without prejudice and claiming innocence about all allegations leveled against him. If he truly believed in fairness and equity, why then did he prejudge by supporting the errant behaviour of Muntari and KPB – hypocritical I would say. Here is food for thought – if Muntari really believed he didn’t err in his actions, then why did he call up his father afterwards to apologise for his behaviour; or did his father lie about him making that call? What a shame!
