Ismael Bennacer’s decision to change agent should not be an immediate cause of concern for AC Milan fans, according to a journalist.
In his latest column for MilanNews, Pietro Mazzara writes that the transition of power of attorney over Bennacer from Moussa Sissoko to Enzo Raiola is ‘completely irrelevant’ with regards to the player’s will.
Ultimately, the agent does what his client wants and there are cases – such as Pierre Kalulu – where players have changed representative and renewed, perhaps in order to facilitate an easier contract extension.
Mazzara adds that Bennacer has always felt that he is worth as much as Theo Hernandez on an economic level, so if wanted that money with Moussa Sissoko looking after his interests, he will also ask for that amount with Enzo Raiola in charge.
Interestingly, the journalist mentions that Sissoko was looking to take Bennacer away from Milan, further fuelling the theory that a desire to renew could be behind the decision.
