RMC Sport: Milan to miss out on Lyon midfielder who will quadruple salary with renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Lyon midfielder Maxence Caqueret as he has reached an agreement to renew his deal, a report claims.

RMC Sport reported last month that Caqueret has received a good offer to extend his contract at Lyon but he is now reflecting on his future after receiving a bid from Milan, with his current deal expiring in June 2023.

Now, the same source (via GFNF) are reporting that the 22-year-old is set to extend his stay with Lyon until 2026. They confirm that Caqueret was deliberating whether to accept Lyon’s offer because Milan had come forward, but the chance to quadruple his salary seems to have done the trick.

There were unsuccessful negotiations at the start of the season that were resumed in the spring and he has apparently been told that he will get the captain’s armband at some point in the future. Caqueret is now expected to officially sign the new deal in the coming days.

  1. We should offer him more in salary if that is his deciding factor. He is good, really good.

    Having 2 young players of the calibre of Bennacer means we are gonna dominate midfield for the next 5 years or so with whoever we play. Factor-in Tonali and we are gonna have one of the best midfields in Europe.

    It will make all of the 4231, 433, 4321, 4213, 4222, 4123, 352, 343 formations viable for us with a strong midfield and will give pioli a LOT of options to try out.

    1. Yes but his contract will expire next summer, which means he would have to reject the contract offer from his club, maybe wouldn’t play at all next season and would have to fight for a spot at Milan after maybe being frozen for a full season. Doesn’t sound that tempting to be honest, as much as I’d like to have him at Milan.

  2. Just skip this. He don’t wanna move to italy . If he want ,he will reject contract offer from Lyon and ask to be sold. Better find another player
