AC Milan and Stefano Pioli are determined to continue their journey together and the extension of his contract should be a formality.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Pioli and Milan intend to move forward together and to continue building a squad that has aspirations of winning silverware. While the expiring contracts of Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli are dominating the media headlines, there is that of Pioli too, hence the need to address the issue.
There is no need to rush Pioli’s extension though as the report claims even ten minutes could be enough, and it cannot be ruled out that everything could be formalised over the international break. The ex-Lazio and Fiorentina boss earns €2.3m net per year (plus a €500,000 bonus upon achievement of qualification for the Champions League) and is waiting for the call to extend.
Milan also inserted a one-year option that can be exercised unilaterally to extend the agreement until June 2023, but they intend to meet Pioli and his agent to negotiate a more formal extension with a potential pay rise.
