CM: Bennacer outlines priority amid Chelsea and Arsenal interest but Milan face dilemma

By Oliver Fisher -

Ismael Bennacer is aware of his status as one of AC Milan’s best players and he hopes that a higher salary will reflect that, a report claims. report that Bennacer is a player who has found his ideal environment at Milan as he has worked hard to reach his current level and feels like a leader on and off the pitch, even if he is not the most vocal.

Now he wants to take further steps to become one of the best midfielders in the world, and the Algerian knows that the next contract will mark the first turning point in his young career, given that he turned 25 yesterday.

Moussa Sissoko is Bennacer’s historic agent but the exclusive mandate he had in terms of the power to represent the former Empoli man expired three months ago, and the paths of the two separated because the player was not satisfied with the strategy used in the negotiation for the renewal with Milan.

The decision to rely on Enzo Raiola came after a careful casting of the proposals received from the various agents and Milan were promptly informed of this news. Bennacer’s priority is to renew Milan, but he wants €4.5-5m net per season in salary that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will have to decide whether to satisfy or not.

A first meeting between Bennacer’s new agent and the management of the Rossoneri is expected next week, while Chelsea and Arsenal are ‘very interested’ and are watching on.

  1. I think Milan should resign Leao over Bennacer. He’s a greatness player but not a generational talent like Leao… 50 million wouldn’t be bad if Liverpool and Arsenal are truly interes It shouldn’t be difficult to get close to that even with one year remaining.

    1. How is Leao generational, Mbappe is generational. Leao has like 2 G/A in his last 10 games for Milan, I would take a 80M offer if he doesn’t renew and make the horrible right wing better, he relies a lot on his pace but if he gets a cb or rightback against him who is also fast he’s less good. But i will probably get hate from fanboys

      1. Come on man you watch the games. Look up his shot creations per game stats. He finished 2nd in 2021, 1st last year and is 2nd this year. Over his next contract he will figure out his finishing and will be a 20+ goal player.
