GdS: Milan willing to give centre-back a pay rise but multi-year extension is unlikely

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are ready to get to work on the renewal of Simon Kjaer and they have a one-year extension in mind for the defender, a report claims.

After an extraordinary European Championships with Denmark, who reached the semi-finals before losing to England, Kjaer is back to training at Milanello ahead of the new season and should make his first appearance of the preseason campaign either today against Valencia or at the weekend against Real Madrid.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), after the renewal of Franck Kessie there is another contract extension on the agenda of Maldini and Massara as the Rossoneri will soon also meet Kjaer and his entourage.

The Dane has a contract expiring in 2022, and while there has been talk of a two-year extension – therefore until 2024 – Milan’s idea is to go on year after year, which would mean an offer put forward until 30 June 2023. A pay rise is expected too, as Kjaer currently earns €1.2million net per season and could go up to €1.5m.
