Early career
Starting his career at his native club A.C. Milan youth system, he was loaned to Pro Sesto and Lumezzane in early years.

Hellas Verona
In 1998, Brocchi was sold to Hellas Verona in Serie B. Brocchi followed the club promoted to Serie A.

After a year in the top-division, Internazionale signed him in 2000.


In the summer of 2001, A.C. Milan re-signed him in exchange of Andrés Guglielminpietro, who went to Inter. In AC Milan, Brocchi had to compete with the likes of Fernando Redondo, Gennaro Gattuso, Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf. He never made more than 15 appearances a year, and those were often as a substitute. His contact was renewed by the club in September 2003.

Brocchi was loaned to ACF Fiorentina in July 2005, with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the season but at the end of 2005-06, he returned to A.C. Milan, partly as a result of the problems Milan faced in finding new recruits due to the 2006 Italian football scandal.

Third Spell in Milan
Brocchi made a career high 29 Serie A appearances in the 2006-07 season. Although Emerson arrived in the 2007-08, Brocchi continued to appear regularly making 24 appearances, 10 as starter, effectively becoming Carlo Ancelotti's first choice replacement in midfield.
