In addition to signings, there have also been rumours of potential departures for AC Milan in January. Although the Rossoneri aren’t looking to part with any of their important players, their captain has attracted the interest of a big club.
Alessio Romagnoli is a focal point of Elliott Management’s project at Milan, thus earning the captain’s armband. This season, despite the poor start of the team, he has managed to remain consistent performance-wise.
According to Calciomercato.com’s Daniele Longo, therefore, he is being courted by Atletico Madrid. For the Spanish side, the 24-year-old is a concrete target, as they are thinking about formalizing an offer for the Rossoneri to evaluate.
Milan, on the other hand, want to lock down their captain by renewing the current contract (expires in 2022) until 2024. Most likely, as the report continues, agent Mino Raiola will ask for a pay rise in the negotiations, which could complicate things.
