Juventus are still interested in a move for AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli though there are plans to discuss a renewal, a report claims.
Romagnoli joined the Rossoneri from Roma in a €25million deal four years ago, and has gone on to amass over 120 appearances for the club and earn the armband as a result of his consistent performances.
However recently, Sportmediaset – as cited by Calciomercato.com – reported that Romagnoli has chosen to split with agent Sergio Berti and entrust Raiola as his new representative.
They also stated that Raiola’s first priority will be to request a renewal of Romagnoli’s contract with a salary higher than the €3.5m he currently makes (as per Gazzetta dello Sport), and that the centre-back could leave if his demands are not met.
According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), the Milan captain continues to be on Juve’s radar, while offers from abroad have also arrived.
Soon, Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban will have to sit at the table with Raiola and discuss his renewal given the interest surrounding the 24-year-old.
Romagnoli’s current deal expires in 2022, and the report adds that talks over a new deal will begin in June once the season ends and the transfer window opens.
