AC Milan may have a chance of keeping Alessio Romagnoli after all as talks over his renewal have started well, according to one journalist.
Speaking on Carlo Pellegatti’s YouTube channel (via MilanNews), Carlo Laudisa of La Gazzetta dello Sport gave an update on the renewal of Romagnoli and begins by confirming that the management are now starting to focus on the renewal of the centre-back’s deal which expires next June.
Until now there had been silence about this negotiation because last year the player had lost his spot in the starting line-up, so his time at Milan seemed destined to come to an end with his agent Mino Raiola in agreement, but in the last few days a dialogue has begun about the player’s stay at Milan.
He has a high salary that with bonuses reaches over €5m net per season and Milan are unlikely to keep him at the same amount, but the turning point has come both thanks to a rapprochement with Raiola but also thanks to the player.
The Milan captain has become aware that playing in a more competitive team – even if not a starter but with stimulating commitments it – could be more interesting than going to play elsewhere.

Quite simple, he has less lucrative options. If he had better options, he would surely leave. Both Sergio Ramos and messi are trying to get uses to not having the captains arm band. Romagnoli will not get that arm band elsewhere. His club Lazio will NOT pay him 5m, how much does immobile make in wages again?
Simply put, his Stock fell abysmally, Still an average CB coz he stopped developing.
His Current deal a Fair enough, He isn’t worth the Hype yet.
And He’s aware of this.
We have had positive signs over renewal for snakes
like Dollarumma, Calhanoglu, Kessie and now Romagnolli. I bet he will want 6-7M and he will leave on a free transfer.
