CM: A halved salary and Raiola’s Juventus idea – the latest on Romagnoli’s renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are still trying to resolve the future of captain Alessio Romagnoli and it could be a difficult negotiation with his agent Mino Raiola. 

Calciomercato.com writes how Romagnoli has always provided the right answers when called upon by head coach Stefano Pioli despite the fact that Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori seem to be the first choice pairing for the time being.

Romagnoli for his part has understood that in such an intense season – which will feature spells of playing three games every eight days – everyone will need to contribute. That is why he wants to be a part of the stimulating project that the Rossoneri are building.

The 26-year-old has had discussions with the management in which ample willingness has been expressed to consider a possible renewal offer, but Milan would only entertain it if he were to accept different economic conditions compared to the current €6m net per season he earns.

Directors Maldini and Massara could offer half of that, while Raiola could become a key factor and he has a free transfer to Juventus on their agenda, and the agent’s recent words against the Rossoneri in the media have not been received well at Casa Milan.

    The less business we have with Raiola the better. On the other hand we still need the cap. And finding an experienced CB is a big challenge considering how tough our calendar is.
    I would go with ‘Same salary but change your agent’ offer. It would satisfy everyone.

    1. Alarape Yusuf says:

      No, I would rather prefer reduced of the salary to 4m and change your agent…

    2. Nino says:

      Really? So you think Romagnoli should get 6m for being a sub? Meanwhile Kjaer gets less than 2m. Do you know how much Tomori earns? Less than 3m. So the starters should earn less than the sub?

  2. Psychosocial says:

    This is madness, I wonder who comes up with this greedy negotiation tactic… The young man has shown willingness to stay with the project, so you decide to propose a deal lower than his current one with the club…. But players who want to leave the club are presented enticing contact proposals to convince them to stay with the club.. Except all these are just rumours, this businesses make no sense whatsoever.

    1. Opinion Varies says:

      That is precisely what I was thinking. Why, for example, should a person who wishes to stay be paid less? Give him the same salary and a four-year contract, I’d say. Having a top defender to switch games with Tomori and Kjaer is preferable to signing a new defender.

      1. Nino says:

        Really? Give him same salary at 6m for 4years for being on the bench while the starters for the same position earn less than half of that? Do you know Kjaer earns less than 2m at the moment?

        He’s going to be sold once he doesn’t accept Milan’s offer. Raiola wants him to leave on a free, but Milan have to cut ties with all players who use the fat pig.

    2. ForzaMilan from Nigeria says:

      I concur with u bro. Romagnoli is loyal to the club and wants to stay, regardless of the fact he has lost his spot to Tomori.
      I suggest a slight increase to his salary with the condition that he changes his agent, and retainment of his captain armband.
      What Milan need is to be free of Raiola.
      as for Kessie, he can leave for all i care but they have to sell him in january to rack up some funds, we cant be loosing such players for free

  3. Rosso Joburg says:

    What I don’t understand is who will offer him more than us?
    Even Juventus must have learnt after Rabiot and Ramsey debacles.
    I mean no top team could want to go for him with his past performance these last 3 years unless it’s a great deal.
