CM: Milan struggling for contract agreement with Simic – the details

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan are finding it hard to secure the future of young defender Jan-Carlo Simic with the German driving a harder bargain than expected. 

As reported by, Milan are having mixed success when it comes to contracts this summer. Whilst the renewals of Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez seem to be under control for the time being, Simic could be destined for a new club.

Milan have been talking to Beppe Riso, Simic’s agent, for a number of weeks now about the German’s contract but little ground has been made.

His current deal expires in 2025 so Milan are exposed to bids from clubs that think they could get him for cheaper than expected.

It seems that the player and his entourage have a different view as to what salary he should be on despite being a fringe player.

There have been suggestions recently that Simic could be used as part of a deal for another defender, or even as part of a deal for Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy.

If Milan cannot make any ground when it comes to a new contract, this may be their best option to ensure he maintains some sort of transfer value for the summer.

  1. I think he is ready for a step up, so instead of refusing to extend, make it a difficult negotiation and check out either this mercato or next summer. Can’t say I blame him, but you need a special type of project to integrate your youngsters into the 1st team. Amd I don’t think Milan offers that kind of comfort.

  2. Him like Kerkez before the know they can get A LOT more 1st team football and experience, and probably a bigger paycheck in other clubs/leagues.

    So if Milan wants to keep them, they either promote them to 1st team, or pay more to offset less playtime and no 1st team football, or sell them.

    Love for the club can only get you so far, but when you’re actively holding kids back, basically slowing down their career and growth without giving then anything in return, monetary at least, the will pick up and leave.

    1. Especially when they see thier mates in other top five leagues playing regularly in first teams with some already winning trophies.

      1. I choose Young Gun from academy to build part of senior team, give them playing minutes include the player in from loan like CDK, Salaemaker, nastri, colombo, camarda, simic Bratesaghi, pobega etc. And Milan should have same role, same playing Philosopies n System for academy until senior team, learn from Ajax, La Masia (pep, enrique era)

  3. Losing him would be a mistake IMO. He did show more this season than Thiaw or Kalulu (granted he didn’t play a lot and it was against sitting ducks).
    What’s the point of a primavera if we can’t even trust players who did show good games with the first team.

  4. It would be idiotic to let him go. Even if the plan was to sell him, clubs would be paying more when he has 2-5 years left of his contract than now.

  5. Can’t blame this kid for looking for more first-team minutes elsewhere. U23 might not be his cup of tea.

  6. He deserve first team playing time even as sub . Just like kerkez , he will find club that can give him playing time . U23 in serie C not interesting for him . Sell him if he want to leave for 3-5m euro
