TMW: Bennacer essential in Pioli’s tactical plans – a well-earned renewal is imminent

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are enjoying having Ismael Bennacer back to his best and they appear ready to rewards him with a contract extension, according to a report.

TMW recalls how back in the summer of 2019 Bennacer was wanted by Fiorentina and Milan and in the end it was the Rossoneri who won the competition by paying €16m to the Azzurri. He adapted to the mechanisms and schemes over time and despite having some rough patches due to injury, he has now become essential in Stefano Pioli’s midfield.

It is no coincidence that the Rossoneri management are getting ready for the announcement of his contract renewal. In the coming weeks the Algerian will extend with Milan, earning a pay rise to €3m net per season plus bonuses per season until 2026.

It is a certificate of esteem that confirms just how important he is right now, but also how the Arsenal academy product is growing and is adding consistency to his performances. His goal against Cagliari is hopefully just a start in his quest to become a Milan great.

  1. Yes, lock him up to a longer deal! His ability to win tackles against big time players and then possess/dribble/shield opponents in traffic before delivering nice balls forward to the wings is essential for our team.
