GdS: Milan face uphill battle in renewal negotiations over midfielder and captain

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been locked in talks for some time over the renewal of a couple of their key players but have not made much progress, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) focuses on the way that the Milan management are trying to plan for future and part of the strategy is to try and pre-empt the renewal talks over several of their key players because of the issues highlighted in the failed Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu negotiations in terms of player leverage.

The paper claims that talks with Kessie and Romagnoli – and their respective entourages – have been going on for some time, although at the moment there have not been good results. For the Ivorian there is pessimism about reaching an agreement, while a meeting is planned with Romagnoli to see if there are margins to extend.

However, it will be difficult to find an agreement given that the offer will be lower than the current €5.5m net per season the club captain receives.

    Roma is on 6 mil a year net? so that 12mil gross, probably on a 5 y contract.
    12mil x 5year = 60million cost to Milan

    Kessie wants 8 mill on 5year so that’s
    16mil x 5year = 80 million cost to Milan

    or sign Kamara from Marseille and another defender for well less than half that plus the 50% tax exemption for new players coming into Italy from abroad

    Romagnoli is not worth 6M per year…we can replace him since he is not an Undisputed starter..Gabbia can fill in for him. W would then need to call up a 4th CB from Primavera.
    Kessie is already gone…We already have Bakayoko on the books and Adli coming in..we shuld be fine. Maybe sign Kamara from OM in Jan as he is on an expiring Contract.

  4. El Zhar says:

    Yeah,, just replace Kessie with Kamara, then it’s a win-win solution for us..
    For Romagnoli, if only he accept lower contract then I don’t mind him as decent back up for us..
    Gabbia deserves more chance absolutely…

  5. Kourosh says:

    I won’t even offer Romagnoli 4m a year. How in the world is he earning that much in the first place?
