CM: Centre-back who earns €6m-a-year destined to leave Milan – Serie A rival show interest

By Oliver Fisher -

There is now a team who have come forward and shown a concrete interest in signing Alessio Romagnoli on a free transfer, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com reports how Romagnoli is no longer a guaranteed starter for the first time in his six-year career at Milan and hasn’t been since Fikayo Tomori arrived, first on loan and then in a permanent deal, and that is why it will not be easy for the Italian defender to get the playing time he wants.

In all probability, this will be his last season with the Rossoneri because there are no ongoing negotiations between Paolo Maldini, Frederic Massara and his agent Mino Raiola to extend his contract which is expiring in June 2022.

This is due in large part to purely economic reasons as his current salary is too much for the policy pursued by CEO Ivan Gazidis in the last two seasons. Romagnoli actually receives a salary of around €6m net per season at the moment, not the €3.5m a lot of places are reporting.

This is because of the fact that in the agreement stipulated in June 2018 former sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli agreed with Romagnoli’s then-agent Sergio Berti a four-year contract starting with a base of €3.5m and rising up to the current €6m.

Where might Romagnoli’s future be? Lazio have shown an interest in signing him and they are the team which he has been rooting for since he was a child, but Claudio Lotito does not seem willing to guarantee him the same salary he currently has at Milan.

    Should have been sold last january. Oh well. Maybe this time management will learn something. Probably not.

    Never liked Romagnoli. Players get easily past him. He isn’t smart in defending. He doesn’t care if he wins or loses. He just doing it for the money. He can go, unfortunately no one wants to pay for him.

    Ramagnoli should have been sold two years ago when he had many suitors. Once a players picks a Shylock as his agent, the proper course of action is sell and immediately too. Rent a new defender on loan in his place. Ramagnoli should be sent out on loan in January and let the young Gabbia and kalulu more playing time. Gabbia and Kalulu should be tied to five year contracts immediately.

    Kessie wanted Milan because he knows he is adored but his turncoat Shylock agents have beclouded his sense of reasoning.

    Even if Kessie wants to stay now, it is too late. Except he sacks these torn coat sharp eyed Shylock agents . Even twenty or ten million euros should be enough. Infact he should not future in the Champion league to ensure that his suitors and value are not depreciated by that. Milan has four very good midfielders now. They should tie Krunic and Bernacer to five year contract immediately before their performance starts to make their heads swing in delusion like Kessie. Kessie was hardworking and completely energized but any fee above five million euros net is madness. He should just be sold immediately.

    Honestly, I like Gabbia better than Romagnoli. I would say bench him but he’s already on the bench, and he’s there because other players had better performances and a lot more consistency last season, and that’s part of the game. I can understand why he doesn’t like that but he’s to blame for that, not the management or Pioli. Plus, getting rid of Raiola is already something good for the team.
