Stefano Pioli is not the kind of head coach who often makes demands to the board, but there was an exception when he learned of the interest in Rade Krunic.
La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Bianchin spoke on Radio Rossonera today about a number of different topics regarding Milan’s mercato, including the pursuit of Mehdi Taremi and Bayern Munich’s interest in Pierre Kalulu.
One of the things he touched on in particular was the situation regarding Krunic who has been attracting interest from Fenerbahce, and he began by saying that it ‘doesn’t seem like an issue on the table right now’.
Around two days ago it was excluded that Krunic would be allowed to depart before the window shuts and it is ‘very, very complex’ for the scenario to change given there are four days left in the window.
“I know that Milan is ready to refuse even high offers, if you then ask if they would be willing to refuse indecent offers I don’t know, but it doesn’t seem like a probable scenario at the moment,” he said.
“Let’s say that Pioli is not a coach who asks for a lot, he works in harmony with his management, but Krunic was an exception because he is worth a lot to him.
“I think that Milan, at the cost of giving up a few million, will say no to these offers also because they have to go and get another player afterwards.”
