GdS: Expiring deals on the horizon for Milan’s defence – Romagnoli’s situation difficult

By Oliver Fisher -

Several AC Milan defenders have contracts which expire in the next two years which could lead to an overhaul in the rearguard, a report claims.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport points out on Tuesday (via MilanLive), the situation surrounding Alessio Romagnoli – who is under contract until 2022 – is a particularly interesting one and the signs are not positive for the Rossoneri at present.

If Milan are placed in 15th in Serie A for goals scored, they are instead found in 6th with regards to goals conceded. Barring a couple of disasters such as the nine goals let in between Atalanta and the derby, the defensive department has been solid.

Gianluigi Donnarumma has managed to keep nine clean sheets in the league already this season, and nobody has more. Gigio and Romagnoli have been the pillars during a troubled season, but with the latter there is a worry regarding his contract.

The Donnarumma crossroads has been written about extensively in the media and Elliott will want to avoid a repeat of that, so therefore they will have to define a time limit and a budget under which to work.

In addition to Romagnoli there is also Andrea Conti, Davide Calabria and Diego Laxalt who all expire in 2022, while Mateo Musacchio’s future beyond the summer is not certain either. Clearly not all will remain, but the future must be planned as soon as possible.
