CM: Maldini and Massara decide to sell Romagnoli – no renewal offer will be sent to Raiola

By Oliver Fisher -

It seems as though AC Milan will need to elect a new captain this summer as Alessio Romagnoli is likely to leave this summer, a report claims.

According to Calciomercato.com, the Italian defender appears set to depart Milan when the window opens, one year from when his contract expires. Directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have made a choice based on technical and economic criteria and they have determined that he is not needed.

The former Roma man played only 107 minutes from March 7 onwards, against Lazio and Benevento, as in the decisive phase of the season head coach Stefano Pioli relied on the pairing of Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori.

Milan have not presented an offer to Mino Raiola to renew Romagnoli’s deal, not even at the current figure of €3.5m net per season, and offers will be heard in the summer. There is the idea that he could stay at Milan for another year and leave for free but the chances of this are very low, as Romagnoli wants to go back to feeling like a protagonist and he doesn’t want a whole season on the bench.

    Good choice, ger rid of Raiola from Milan. Ibra decides for himself and won’t be around for long, all the same who is his agent.

      +1!

      Totally fed up with this greedy drama queen agent!

      Do not any of his players in future! Just like Chelsea has done. Enough is enough!

    I feel that the management started clearing the Riola’s puppies

  3. Joe Helmy says:

    That’s good decision.. Maldini has been alergic with Raiola. It’s also will influence on planning to buy De Paul.

  4. Zoro Caloro says:

    Too bad about Gigio and Alessio but it all comes down to agent. I bet if neither had the awful human Raiola as their agent then there wouldn’t have been any drama. As much as I’d like both to stay I’d love to see that cancer of a person Raiola out of Milan entirely.

    Kessie new captain next year i guess. with Dollaruma and Romagnoli gone. Don’t know who can be second captain as none is long at the team. Maybe Calabria if he keeps growing.

    1. qwerty says:

      Kjaer is much more suitable as a captain. Kessie only vice for now.

  6. MC Miker G says:

    Romagnoli has never quite lived up to the early hype. Good defender on his best days, but the Raiola thing works against him. He also whines a lot, which is not suitable behaviour for a club captain. Get rid.

  7. Ferenc T says:

    Kjaer could be the new capitano

  8. Abubakar Amin says:

    Pls…eject and never buy Riola’s seeds

  9. micah97 says:

    He was going to ask for too much money as a Raiola agent

    Donnarumma, now Romagnoli, does a great job Eliot and Gazditis (Maldini and Massara are just pawns in Milan and don’t wonder anything). The news in the new Milan is that when someone wants a higher salary, they tell him to leave the club ,? lol !!!! We got what was known Eliot does not intend to enter the great Milan but to raise young players and later cash in for them big money, while fans normally expect something completely different, fans want a powerful Milan like Berlusconi had fear and trepidation for all teams in europe, unfortunately it will remain just a dream and nothing more.

    Agree to all the comments above, its time we clear from raiola players, of course it effect to De Paul transfer but i think in the beginning its just rumour from medias.
