CM: Romagnoli disappoints after return – Milan wait for him to prove he is worth Raiola’s requests

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are waiting for Alessio Romagnoli to prove that he is worthy of the pay rise that his agent Mino Raiola is demanding, a report claims.

After three months out with injury Romagnoli has recently returned to the fold and was given a baptism of fire by making his first start back against Inter, however his performances in the last few games have not offered the expected assurances.

As Calciomercato.com notes, with over 200 Serie A appearances under his belt, Romagnoli can be considered an experienced player despite being only 25 years old.

The feeling is that he has not taken the leap to becoming a top centre-back and the excuse of an injury cannot be used, as he has made mistakes that are the result of carelessness or misreadings of the game.

On Sunday evening against Hellas Verona the Rossoneri will have to respond to the 3-0 defeat to Lille which ended their 24-game unbeaten run, and the pressure will especially be on Romagnoli to up his levels.

At Milan he is doing well and earning €3.5m net per season, but his contract expires in 2022 and his agent Mino Raiola would like to raise his salary to €5m. First, though, he must earn his pay rise.

    Can you give me the name of another defender whose salary is 3.5 million who has received a rating of 5 out of 10 in 4 of the last 7 games played?

    I really love romagnoli, but he has not proven himself to be a world-class defender, always soft, easily beaten in crucial aerial duels, I think Milan need to focus on solid world-class such as upamecano ,this is the time to show our level of mentality against Verona and claim all 3 point with good football, I remain a milanista, forza milan
