Mediaset: Milan alerted as Barcelona and Juventus ready exchange offers for €50m star
By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus and Barcelona are monitoring the situation surrounding AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli, according to a report.

Claudio Raimondi has told SportMediaset (via MilanNews), that Milan want to bring forward the discussions over Romagnoli’s renewal, with his current contract set to expire on 30 June 2022.

Elliott Management have long wanted to sit down at the negotiating table with the club captain to discuss a renewal, even if they are aiming to get an agreement at a lower salary than the current one (€3.5m net per season) and closer to the €2.5m-a-year ceiling.

This solution does not seem to be particularly appreciated by Mino Raiola, the report continues, who would like to know the new project of Milan as soon as possible.

In the meantime, Raiola is listening to the other proposals for 25-year-old including that of Juventus, who want to lower the Rossoneri’s €50million asking price by including Daniele Rugani in the deal, even if Milan would prefer to get Merih Demiral.

Barcelona are also in the hunt and would offer the player a salary of at least €4million, and the Blaugrana are willing to include either Emerson de Souza or Jean-Clair Todibo in the deal.
