CM: Future of Bonaventura in doubt – renewal remains complicated as Fiorentina circle

By Oliver Fisher -

Giacomo Bonaventura’s time at AC Milan could be coming to a close as a renewal remains ‘complicated’ at present, a report claims.

As Calciomercato.com note, Bonaventura appeared to show a resurgence upon his return from injury, netting twice in three games against Napoli and Bologna.

However since then he has not enjoyed the same impact: the 30-year-old was lacklustre against Sassuolo, unimpressive in the 5-0 defeat against Atalanta, ineffectual against Cagliari and the same in Sunday’s win over Udinese.

Deployed wide left in the 4-4-2 system Stefano Pioli is using, and despite the fact he played in the same position under Sinisa Mihajlovic in 2015-16 – scoring six goals and adding seven assists – he does not appear as at home this time around.

With Bonaventura’s contract set to expire in June, interested suitors are beginning to emerge, with the report claiming that Fiorentina are the most keen at present.

Boban and Maldini always planned to put renewal talks on hold until they could gauge Bonaventura’s potential impact and fitness, but now doubts are now beginning to emerge after initial good signs.

In ten days, Jack will be free to sign a pre-agreement with other teams for the next season. Time is running out, and Bonaventura could be experiencing his last chances to try and stay with Milan.
