GdS: Milan could sell as Raiola demands huge pay rise for Romagnoli – Juve and Barcelona watch on

By Oliver Fisher -

Contract renewals are dominating the headlines surrounding AC Milan at the moment, and some updates on Alessio Romagnoli have arrived.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), the management are also beginning to think of the players who will expire in 2022 and among these is Romagnoli, whose future in the Rossoneri is still to be written.

Despite being club captain, Romagnoli currently does not have the guaranteed starting position as Kjaer and Tomori appear to be the preferred pairing. His agent is Mino Raiola – a man never easy to deal with as seen by the Gigio Donnarumma saga – and the paper claims that the agent has asked for almost double the current salary – from €3.5m to €6m net per season – to renew.

With such a request, the negotiation promises to be anything but simple given that Milan are trying to maintain a sustainable wage budget, and therefore they could decide not to bow to such requests. Therefore, after six years Romagnoli could say goodbye.

In Italy, the only viable track could be the one that leads to Juventus, while abroad pay attention to the idea of Barcelona who for next season are looking for a defender.
