CM: Krunic enjoying the faith of Pioli as Maldini begins to consider a renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

After facing an uncertain future over the summer, Rade Krunic has found himself back in the plans of Stefano Pioli and AC Milan.

Calciomercato.com writes how Krunic started the season with two positive games as a defensive midfielder but then suffered an injury that kept him on the sidelines for a few weeks, but now he is back and is looking to respond after an ineffective performance against Porto.

Krunic should start tonight in the attacking midfielder role behind either Ibrahimovic and Giroud, doing the important job of providing balance to the team and linking the defence and attack. His rise has meant that Maldini and Massara are now considering a potential contract renewal.

After being wanted by Freiburg, Genoa and Torino at various points, Krunic remained at Milan also thanks to the esteem of Pioli. The Rossoneri have begun studying the renewals of all those players expiring in 2024 such Bennacer, Theo Hernandez and Leao, but Krunic is not yet included among these just yet.

    I don’t think he’s worth a raise…average player. Back up only.

      He covers for all midfield positions and even played RW. Find another player that can cover that many position and play ok? He deserves a new contract and he won’t ask for a lot of money 100%, whatever they offer him.

    Lack of vision by Milan management

    1. crorossonero says:

      I think it is more a lack of brain in some people, not understanding that you have to have 3rd, 4th and even 5th choice players. Krunic has been excellent as that.

    Wouldn’t mind a renewal on a team friendly deal.
