MN: Milan and Romagnoli reach stalemate in contract talks – the offer and the captain’s demand

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan remain locked in negotiations with Alessio Romagnoli over the potential renewal of his contract and there is a distance between the parties, a report claims.

Romagnoli has been at Milan since the summer of 2015 when he joined from Roma, and up until the beginning of 2021 he was very much one of the first names on the team sheet under all previous managers, but the arrival of Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea on an initial loan that was made permanent has meant he is no longer a guaranteed starter.

MilanNews takes a look at the difficulties that Milan’s defensive department are facing given that Fikayo Tomori is out for around a month after surgery and Simon Kjaer will miss the rest of the season, with the situation not helped by the fact Romagnoli’s situation is currently an unknown too.

Regarding Romagnoli’s contract, the negotiation is experiencing a stalemate after reports of an initial opening between two parties and a potentially easy negotiation. That is because the captain wants €3.5m net per season plus €1m in potential bonuses, while the offer on the table is €2.5-2.8m plus bonuses.

  1. He now has the upper hand given our defensive troubles and how unsuccessful our search for a new CB has been. It would be a huge blow to lose another player for free in the summer.

  2. why the f… we always end up in this situation, we never learn from our mistakes…We always lose players for free… Last year its Hakan and Donna, now it will be Romon and Kessie… We are just lossing money and value…

    1. Losing a good player for free…? Good job by milan managements. Keep it that way… last year we lost hakan and donnarumma for free, this season could be kessie and our captain. Well done , milan

  3. The distance is not that much. I is much wiser to make a step forward of maybe 500k instead of have to splash the cash on a brand new defender that will also want a decent salary.
    3.5m for a first team player looks fine by me. (I consider Tomori, Kjær and Romagnoli to be rotating first team players, just depends what pair is playing their best game and availability)

  4. Milan is very ungrateful. Just 3.5 Milan doesn’t want to pay…When he was at his peak and the team was not performing he turned down all big offers and stayed. I think this is why kessie is demanding more because when his performance drops Milan will throw him away like garbage

    1. I understand you’re Kessie fans. But the fact is he doesn’t deserve 9 million /year. Why?

      From FOUR season with Milan, Kessie only had ONE great season which was last year. This year, the FIFTH season, he’s a mixed of bag of brilliant and stupid.

      And look at Kessie recent work with his national team. He even missed out a pinalty kick!!!

      Again. He doesn’t deserve 9 million /year and no club offer him 9 million either not even PSG, City, or Liverpool.

  5. I bet the issue is related to assurances of playing time as much as anything. Beside these are tabloid stories so they are mostly made up anyway

  6. Romagnoli will be a bench player for us. Botman has similar characteristics but is better and currently makes 300k.
    3,5 for bench defender?
    Take another Raiola client out of this club

    You guys want everything: big signings, big salaries.
    But you forget this club lost more than its revenue 2 years ago. It was bankrupcy road at the end of Chinese guy ownership

    And you probably not care tickets would have to be raised since you were never there. While some cannot be you have to think about local fans too

  7. Need to let him go and bring in Botman.I like Romagnoli,but unfortunately he lost a couple of steps for whatever reason. He is a big liability on the field,especially against short quick forwards.
