SM: Krunic close to renewing until 2027 – why Pioli and the management all agree

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will soon announce the extension of midfielder Rade Krunic’s contract, according to the information we have.

The Bosnian midfielder arrived in the summer of 2019, along with Ismael Bennacer, to play in Marco Giampaolo’s 4-3-2-1 formation as a mezzala. Although he has often found starts hard to come by, he has still racked up 91 appearances for the Rossoneri with 2 goals and 5 assists.

According to what we have learned through our colleagues at, Milan are ready and willing to renew Krunic’s current deal until June 2027.

Even though he is not a guaranteed starter, the Bosnian is considered an important part of Stefano Pioli’s squad as he has shown a willingness to tackle any role or situation that the Milan coach has asked him to.

He has played as a central midfielder in the double pivot, as an attacking midfielder behind the striker and even as a left winger, showing his flexibility to occupy different positions on the pitch if necessary for the good of the team.

Moreover, his selfless and always professional attitude is an example for the rest of the dressing room to follow, with Pioli very much happy to have a player like Krunic in his squad.

  1. King krunic always work hard & versatile . He deserve renew with pay rise. He is borini reincarnation that can play every position

  2. Rade Krunic is the most surprising depth. Always the 3rd choice for almost all positions at beginning every season he had with ACM, but still collected considerable amounts of playing-time.

    And actually he never did terrible things.

    Will he be the next Massimo Ambrosini ?

  3. super cool player this rade, but definitly not a UCL in spring profile.. will be our Kessie replacment..belongs to the fact the we cannot offload baka, big shame this 2year loan

  4. Krunic deserves it!

    Krunic is that type of versatile players who didn’t talk much, never complain or making drama, giving 100% every time he plays, and always been useful for the coach & team. But most people didn’t respect and acknowledged his works because he’s not as popular as Ronaldo, Messi, Mbappe, etc.

    Just look at some comments who wants Milan to sell him or call him garbage :/

  5. Didn’t Krunic also play in defense one match? He has gotten better, especially to the end of last season. This isn’t a bad decision.

  6. In 2027 he will be 34

    During 5 years a lot can change…and we need to have more Italians.

    Bayern famously does not prolong even stars over 30 for more than 2 years…even Neuer.

    He will be a deadwood in few years – same as Florenzi who as 3rd choice RB of last season costs the club the most! Highest gross salary.

    1. His salary are cheap . Only 2,5m euro nett after renew but useful to cover many position & pioli like him. But i agree about florenzi salary too high for just back up in one position RB
