CM: Milan set clear stance over summer signing – he will not leave in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have made their stance clear on midfielder Rade Krunic with a number of clubs interested in him, according to a report.

Krunic was one of six summer signings that the Rossoneri made, the second official one after Theo Hernandez but the first to be reported widespread by the media.

The 26-year-old On joined Milan in July for an undisclosed fee, and made his official debut for the club in a loss to Fiorentina on September 29.

Despite impressing in his appearances so far, Krunic has been unable to wrestle a starting spot from both Franck Kessie and Lucas Paqueta for the most part, having started just three out of 16 Serie A games.

This has led to suggestions in the media that he may be allowed to leave on loan in January, but are reporting that Milan have made it abundantly clear that Krunic will be staying at the club past next month.

The report does state though that several teams are interested in the former Empoli man, with Genoa being one of the sides linked.
