Set aside, almost discarded. Jack Bonaventura no longer has a key role in the new AC Milan – designed by CEO Ivan Gazidis – following the sacking of Zvone Boban and the likely departure of Paolo Maldini.
The 30-year-old’s contract with the club will expire in June, but so far there has been no progress on an extension. In fact, the Rossoneri haven’t even properly started the negotiations with his agent Mino Raiola, as reported by Calciomercato.com.
As a result of this, Raiola has already started working on other solutions, offering the services of his client. The likes of Fiorentina, Lazio, Napoli, Roma and Torino are following the situation closely, evaluating the free transfer.
This begs the question, should Milan let him leave? In his six years at the club, Bonaventura has been one of the few positive notes. This is demonstrated by his numbers: 34 goals and 15 assists from his midfield position.
Bonaventura’s quality and experience can still be useful, and half of Serie A know this. The ball is in Milan’s court, but they must act quick as Raiola is working on finding the best solution.
