There are a number of players with expiring contracts that the AC Milan management must make a decision on and one of them is defender Simon Kjaer.
There is no overstating the impact Kjaer has had since his arrival, and his fantastic 2020-21 campaign caused some to put his name forward as Milan’s player of the season.
His leadership at the back was felt every game and even the team had a lot of injuries he stepped up to the plate and became someone Stefano Pioli could rely heavily on, which seemed unlikely when he arrived from Sevilla as an unknown quantity.
However, Kjaer is now 34 years of age and his contract with the club is set to expire at the end of the season. Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) remark that during the current campaign it took the Dane a while to get going, also due to various physical problems.
Since he found physical stability his performances have certainly been good though, and his future has not yet been discussed, but it remains likely that he will goodbye at the end of the season.
The reason is mainly because Milan are planning to make a big investment in the defence this summer, like Alessandro Buongiorno of Torino, who would join Malick Thiaw, Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu to leave little space.
