AC Milan centre-back Simon Kjaer is in line to get a contract extension and the added bonus of becoming captain, according to a report.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) wrote recently how Kjaer became a protagonist for what he did during the frightening moments after Christian Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s opening game at the European Championships, which gave rise to the hashtag #KjaerCapitano that could now become a reality.
There has also been talk that Kjaer could extend his contract this summer given that his current deal is set to expire at the end of the upcoming season. According to Nicolo Schira on Twitter, Kjaer is set to become the new captain of Milan, and the club are ready to open talks over a contract extension until 2023.
It is without doubt just reward for a player who has established himself as a leader on and off the pitch for the Rossoneri.
