The intriguing tale of Hachim Mastour has taken another twist, with the youngster still on the books at AC Milan.

Get Milan at 6/1 for the Serie A title

It was understood that the 19-year-old had been released at the end of his previous contract, with it reported that he had dropped into the free agent pool in July.

He has, however, revealed that he is back in training with the Rossoneri.

Mastour has taken to Instagram to prove that he is still working with Milan ahead of the 2017-18 campaign – a season in which the ambitious Serie A side are expected to achieve big things.

Mastour penned his first professional contract with Milan in 2014, with a three-year deal agreed.

The hype surrounding him was borne out of his exploits on YouTube, with his skills capturing the imagination of a global audience.

Unfortunately, the promising midfielder was unable to fulfil that promise on a senior stage.

What happened to Hachim Mastour?

He was handed his Milan debut on the final day of the 2013-14 campaign, but subsequently struggled to make his mark during loan spells at Malaga and PEC Zwolle.

It has now been revealed that Mastour committed to a fresh terms through to 2018 before linking up with Malaga.

That gives him another 12 months in which to try and impress, be that with Milan or while taking in another loan stint.
