Jacobone: Milan offer four-year extension to club captain but salary sacrifice is needed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have tabled a renewal offer to club captain Alessio Romagnoli in a bid to get him to extend his stay, a journalist has claimed.

The Italian defender has a contract which is set to expire at the end of the current season and there is nothing to suggest a renewal is imminent nor that any progress in talks is being made. He has been at the club since 2015 and it is only in 2021 that he has seen his starting spot taken by Fikayo Tomori and Simon Kjaer.

According to Alessandro Jacobone on Twitter, Romagnoli enjoys the esteem of the management to the extent that he has been offered a four-year extension until 2026, but he would have to make a sacrifice in order to stay.

That is because Maldini and Massara are offering €2.8-3m net per season to Romagnoli to try and obtain his renewal, and it remains to be seen if the offer will be accepted. If he were to leave on a free, Milan would obviously have to spend money to replace their captain.

    Thats almost half of what he earned right now if im not mistaken, i doubt that he will accept it but if he does, he will be forever earned my respect and many Milanista as well

    Still have Gabbia & Kalulu for CD in our pocket, their time is coming.

    How do you expect a player to take a lower salary. That is just not right and expect the players to be happy. Alessio you are a good player your form has just dipped due to a lack of playing time, I suggest you sign with a new team. Respect out the window for Milan with this decision. The least they could do is to offer the same salary

      I would say his lack of playing time has dipped due to his form.
      You can’t say he has not had opportunities to prove himself. He always goes missing against strong opposition.

        100%.

    Lol. Why would he sign for half his salary? He’s not 32yrs old. He’s 25-26? No way he accepts. Maybe at same flat salary ok but now he’s gone for sure…he’s going to Juve to replace De Ligt who will leave as he doesn’t play…

    1. Vero Rossonero says:

      Good. That way he can stand in the middle of the box as he often does with the deer in the headlights look as Giroud cuts in front of him to slam in a goal from a corner, or as Leao simply runs around him on a break.

  5. Otte says:

    The offer is ridiculous. 4. 5 will be better as the captain. But to Slash it by half? No way he accepts
