Alessio Romagnoli could remain at AC Milan even if he does not agree to renew his contract before the start of the season, a report claims.
According to Calciomercato.com, Romagnoli’s future at Milan is still to be decided given his contract is expiring in a year which forces Maldini and Massara to try and resolve the issue, but at the moment there are other priorities such as Franck Kessie.
There has been little movement regarding Romagnoli’s contract with no offers and no concrete proposals. Although Romagnoli has lost his starting spot and could lose the captain’s armband too, the former Roma defender is currently not anxious to leave and wants to stay at Milan.
He wants to try and take back his starting spot and show he can still make an important contribution to the cause and this is a position shared also by his agent Mino Raiola, who cannot collect a rich commission without offers. In his mind is taking the 26-year-old to a big club, just as he did with Donnarumma, but the scenario, however, could change in the coming weeks.
If Pioli were to consider him still a reserve, Romagnoli may be forced to reflect and the player could force his hand somewhat.
