Michael Essien completed his move from Chelsea to Ac.Milan on January of 2014 but the Ghanian footballer has not really made an impact at the Italian club as he isn’t a regular starter and even when he does get into the main team, his influence is not substantial.

You can see him on the pitch but not really finding his ground in most of the matches where he performs in.

The contract of Essien expires at the end of the season in the summer and the 32 year old midfielder is being linked with a move to India as well as the United States.

The Indian Super League is growing and it has attracted a number of high profile footballers including: Alessandro Del Piero, David Trezeguet and Nicolas Anelka. A move to India isn’t so far-fetched to believe.

The best years of Michael Essien were spent with Chelsea as he helped the English club in securing 2 Premier League titles, 4 FA Cup’s, 1 League Cup, 1 Community Shield and 1 Champions League silverware. That’s the highest amount of trophies that Essien has secured for a single club.

Making a switch to the American League, MLS is a trend that continues to grow as more and more veteran players are choosing to take this option and there are 2 clubs that have shown an interest in signing Michael Essien, Orlando City Soccer Club and the New York Red Bulls are the clubs that have an expressed an interest in sign the Ghanaian midfielder and might attempt to sign him during the approaching summer transfer window.

It seems highly unlikely that Ac.Milan are considering keeping hold of Michael Essien beyond this summer as the Italian club is going through a number of changes not only in the squad but also in ownership of the club as Silvio Berlusconi is on the verge of selling a majority stake of Ac.Milan over to the Thai businessman Bee Taechaubol and Bee does not seem to have Essien in his plans as the millionaire has plans of removing some of the older players who do not play an important role in the team and Michael Essien is one of them.
