AC Milan’s management have made two exceptions in their decision to renew Simon Kjaer’s contract, according to a report.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that Kjaer has signed a two-year extension thus making the new deadline 2024, and he has netted a pay rise from the €1.2m net per season he was previously earning as he will now get €1.5m per year.
The paper also explains that Elliott Management have made two exceptions in order to resolve the future of the Danish defender. The first is that the club have deviated from their usual stance of putting trust in younger players as they have chosen to keep a 32-year-old around, and to give him a pay rise.
Another detail to note is the duration of the new contract, which has not been extended by just one season but by two, which also goes against the usual policy. Kjaer, therefore, will remain at Milan until he is 34.
