Lazio dream of signing Alessio Romagnoli this summer. Their sporting director, Igli Tare, initiated contacts with Mino Raiola to find out more about the situation. However, Milan’s stance is clear.
As Calciomercato.com highlights, it would be an opportunity for the Rossoneri captain to play in the Champions League, for the team that he has supported since he was a child. However, there are no ongoing negotiations between the clubs.
The contact with Mino Raiola was merely an inquiry to learn more. Even so, it was a warning signal for Milan, who are now preparing a ‘counter-move’ to keep Romagnoli at the club for many years to come.
CEO Ivan Gazidis wants to reward the defender with a contract renewal, which most likely will include a pay rise. The Rossoneri are desperate to avoid another Gigio Donnarumma situation, as they simply can’t afford to lose the captain as well.
