The 2012–13 season was Associazione Calcio Milan's 79th in the Serie A and 30th consecutive season in the top flight of Italian football. This season Milan will try to re-gain the Serie A title, which they lost to Juventus in the previous season. The Rossoneri will also compete in this season's UEFA Champions League, as well as the Coppa Italia.

The season marks the beginning of a new era for Milan with a host of veterans left the club in the summer, including Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso, Filippo Inzaghi, Gianluca Zambrotta, and Clarence Seedorf. Also leaving were star players Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Antonio Cassano during the summer, and Alexandre Pato in the winter.

Pre-season and friendlies[edit]

Milan began their pre-season training at Milanello on Monday, 9 July 2012. The Rossoneri played their first set of friendlies in Bari on 21, July, 2012 to contest the TIM Trophy consisting of three games, of 45 minutes each, against rivals Internazionale and Juventus. Milan's first game was against Juventus, they started well but The Old Lady were awarded a penalty after Bakaye Traoré tackled Mirko Vučinić inside the box in the 31st minute, he then converted the spot-kick which subsequently resulted in Milan's first loss. Their second game was against Inter, Il Diavolo would go ahead in the 16th minute through a Stephan El Shaarawy strike, but Nerazzuri would come back to win through a Fredy Guarín header in the 25th minute, and with Rodrigo Palacio scoring the tie-breaker in the 34th minute, forcing Milan to finish last in the competition with two losses.

On Tuesday, 24 July 2012, Milan played German side Schalke 04 at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, in a balanced match of offense and defense, Urby Emanuelson scored in the 62nd minute to break the stalemate, his sole strike would go on and win the friendly match for the Rossoneri. On Saturday, 28 July 2012, Milan contended in the World Football Challenge, playing a friendly against 2011-12 UEFA Champions League winners, Chelsea, in Miami, Milan looked to be physically dominated by the Blues in the early stages, but became the livelier of the two sides later on, and in the second half, in the 68th minute, after a clinical counter by the Rossoneri, Kevin-Prince Boateng played a perfect through ball to Urby Emanuelson drawing two defenders before passing the ball off to Stephan El Shaarawy. El Shaarawy's subsequent shot was parried by Petr Čech into Emanuelson's path who struck it into the net for the only goal in the game, and a second win for Milan.

Milan played Honduran side Olimpia on Saturday, 4 August in Massachusetts. Milan took the lead in the 24th minute when Robinho shot a low effort from outside the box into the bottom left corner of the goal. Antonio Nocerino would then score the second goal from a Robinho assist and his second, Milan's third, from an Ignazio Abate low cross after drawing the keeper out of his goal in the 37 and 44th minutes, respectively, although Olimpia would pull one back through José Escalante in the 72nd minute. Milan next played Spanish champions Real Madrid in the World Football Challenge at Yankee Stadium in New York on Wednesday, 8 August. Both teams started with strong lineups but it was Madrid who took the through Ángel di María in the 24th minute. Robinho managed to equalise for Milan nine minutes later as both teams went into half time level. Milan made nine changes to the side after halftime. Milan were unable to keep the same rhythm, however, as Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals in the 49th and 66th minutes and goals from Sergio Ramos and José Callejón in the 81st and 89th minute of the match damaged Milan to a heavy 5-1 defeat in the match.

A week later, Milan played their final pre-season game against Juventus in the annual Trofeo Berlusconi at the San Siro on Sunday, 19 August. Robinho opened the scoring for Milan after netting home in the ninth minute. Claudio Marchisio, however, managed to equalize four minutes later and Juventus went into the break with the lead with Arturo Vidal slipping the ball home three minutes before halftime. In the second half, Milan made changes to try to get back into the game but Alessandro Matri netted Juventus' third goal of the night in the 64th minute. Robinho managed to reduce the deficit with a penalty goal 13 minutes before time. Milan had chances to tie the game but it was not enough as Juventus clinched the Trofeo Luigi Berlusconi.[2][3][4]

Transfers[edit]

In the summer transfer window, Milan parted ways with four club legends — Gennaro Gattuso, Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf, and Filippo Inzaghi. Mark van Bommel also decided to leave Milan to return to the Netherlands for PSV. The first inward transfers of the season saw Riccardo Montolivo join on a Bosman transfer from Fiorentina after having failed to complete the transfer in the previous year, while Bakaye Traoré joined from Ligue 1 side AS Nancy. Milan also acquired promising young goalkeeper Gabriel, who joined from Brazilian club Cruzeiro. He was followed by the arrivals of Francesco Acerbi, on co-ownership, and Kévin Constant on loan, as a replacement for the injured Sulley Muntari, both from Genoa on the same day. On 14 July, Milan accepted a €42 million bid for defender Thiago Silva from French side Paris Saint-Germain, and the defender joined the French outfit later that day. Three days later, PSG submitted a €23 million bid for Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimović, which Milan ultimately accepted, resulting in Ibrahimović leaving the club to also play in the French league. The next major transfer saw Giampaolo Pazzini transfer to Milan from crosstown rivals Internazionale and Antonio Cassano heading the opposite way, with an additional fee of around €7 million. The final days of the transfer window saw Milan reinforce the squad with 17-year-old Striker M'Baye Niang from SM Caen, 21-year old forward Bojan Krkić from Roma on loan, and combative defensive midfielder Nigel de Jong from English champions Manchester City.

In the winter transfer window, Milan parted ways with long-time striker Alexandre Pato. They also traded co-ownership with Genoa regarding 50% of Francesco Acerbi's rights for 50% of Kévin Constant's rights. On the last day of the transfer window, Mario Balotelli officially signed for Milan after he was bought from Manchester City. Milan also sold veteran goalkeeper Ferdinando Coppola to Torino and bought youngster Bartosz Salamon from Serie B side Brescia.
