Journalist: Milan could net ‘important financial income’ from sale of defender – ‘solution’ sought

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could ‘look for a solution that satisfies everyone’ when resolving the future of Alessio Romagnoli, according to one journalist.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported earlier in the week that Mino Raiola – a man never easy to deal with as seen by the Gigio Donnarumma saga – has asked for almost double the current salary from €3.5m to €6m net per season for Romagnoli to renew.

With such a request, the negotiation promises to be anything but simple given that Milan are trying to maintain a sustainable wage budget, so after six years Romagnoli could say goodbye with Barcelona and Juventus possible destinations.

Luca Pagni from La Repubblica spoke to MilanNews about a variety of topics including the Rossoneri’s interest in Josip Ilicic and the Donnarumma saga, and the soap opera surrounding Romagnoli was discussed too with some interesting revelations made.

“He is no longer the starter, this is evident, and probably will not accept it. He still has a year on his contract, so you can look for a solution that satisfies everyone,” he said.

“For Milan, having already paid for him – all amortised – it would be an important financial income. In my opinion, Romagnoli would be wrong: with the team in the Champions League I don’t think he would rarely play.”
