CM: Milan have clear ideas – five players will be the backbone for Rangnick

By Isak Möller -

Waiting for clarity on the future, AC Milan will try to finish the season in the best way possible. Although the resumption of the season is close, the leadership of the Rossoneri is already thinking about next year. 

According to, there will be big changes at the club this summer, starting with the arrival of Ralf Rangnick. Yet, there are still some players that will remain and be the backbone in the new revolution.

Gigio Donnarumma is certainly one of them, wanting to stay at the club for many years to come. However, his contract will expire in 2021 and the demands of Mino Raiola, his agent, could complicate the plans.

For Alessio Romagnoli, on the other hand, the situation is very different. His contract will expire in 2022 and all three parties – player, agent and club – have shown wide availability for the renewal, which could come later this year.

Milan’s backbone is also built on three more players: Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer and Ante Rebic. For the former, the Rossoneri have been forced to reject several approaches already, not willing to accept any offers less than €50m.

The scenario is similar for Ismael Bennacer, who is the leader of the midfield. €30m isn’t enough to convince Milan to sell him and only a big offer will do so. For the Croatian, who’s on loan from Eintracht FRrankfurt, €25m plus bonuses could be enough.

From Gigio to Ante, Rangnick’s Milan will focus on these certainties.
