With one win needed to secure Champions League qualification, the Milan management have begun to plan for next season, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) writes this morning how Milan’s problem is the contracts that are about to expire and also those that will expire shortly, which affects the value of the player in question.
Hakan Calhanoglu is still a difficult knot to resolve given the requests for a pay rise, but with qualification for the Champions League it would be more likely to find an agreement. The Gianluigi Donnarumma case has been frozen for the moment, but this too should be resolved at the end of the season with a bridging contract.
The question of Alessio Romagnoli’s renewal must also be tackled with more time available but Milan have no intention of selling him, despite the growth of Fikayo Tomori who must be bought from Chelsea. Three top level centre-backs will be needed, especially with a return to elite competition.
Re-evaluation of younger players and sustainability of salaries are two cornerstones of the Elliott philosophy which is why Davide Calabria and Franck Kessie’s contracts will also be looked at, as their deals expire in 2022.
