GdS: Milan refuse to make decision on future of on-loan star despite impressive displays

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not yet made a decision on the future of loanee Simon Kjaer despite the face he has impressed since arriving, a report claims.

Kjaer arrived on loan until the end of the season from Sevilla back in January but the Rossoneri did negotiate an option to buy as part of that deal, and the Danish international has established himself as a key member of the starting XI causing some to speculate his permanent arrival is a mere formality.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) are reporting that the Milan management have not yet made a final decision on the former Atalanta man.

There is essentially only one thing holding them back, and that is the fact that the player will turn 32 next season, meaning he is a player that does not match the parameters and philosophy set by Elliott Management Corporation.

The club have therefore made it clear that they will only make a decision later. The feeling still appears positive though as it would take just €3.5m to sign him permanently and add necessary experience to a young squad.

In addition, his partnership with Alessio Romagnoli cannot be ignored, and it is possible the club captain could also push for Kjaer’s stay.
