GdS: AC Milan want to tie Bonaventura down to new contract

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ‘intent’ on the idea of giving Giacomo Bonaventura a new contract before the end of the season, according to a report.

Bonaventura recently recovered from a long-term injury which required surgery, and was in the starting XI for the first time since October 25 2018 during Marco Giampaolo’s last game in charge against Genoa, a 2-1 win.

He also started Saturday’s game against Napoli at San Siro and got on the scoresheet, firing home a venomous effort in the first half to cancel out Hirving Lozano’s opener.

However, the 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and attention has now turned to a possible new contract.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – the Rossoneri are intent on renewing his deal and as such will likely hold more talks with Mino Raiola to try and thrash out an agreement.

Bonaventura has played 158 games in all competitions since arriving from Atalanta, scoring 32 goals and adding 16 assists.
