CM: Future of Krunic remains a mystery – contacts with Freiburg still alive with Torino also keen

By Oliver Fisher -

The future of Milan midfielder Rade Krunic is seemingly still to be written, though interest from Freiburg has apparently not gone away.

A number of different sources are reporting that Freiburg made an official offer worth €8m to land Krunic, who struggled in his first season at Milan following last season’s move from Empoli.

However, reports since have suggested that Freiburg’s signing of defensive midfielder Baptiste Santamaria from France has for the time being ruled out the chances of Krunic arriving.

Calciomercato.com have provided an update on the situation by claiming that Sandro Tonali’s arrival will likely push the Bosnia international towards a summer exit, with Freiburg having placed an €8m bid.

Paolo Maldini had asked the German club for time due to commitments in the Europa League, but that was time that Freiburg used to sign Baptiste Santamaria from Angers.

However, the report adds that sources close to the Rossoneri club ensure that contacts with Freiburg for Krunic are still alive. A meeting between the player’s entourage and the Rossoneri management is expected in the next few days to take stock of the situation and understand which path to follow.

Pioli, for his part, would be willing to use Krunic next season, but Torino are also keen on a last minute bid to reunite Marco Giampaolo with one of his former pupils.
