AC Milan centre-back Alessio Romagnoli has not yet renewed his contract which has got Juventus sensing an opportunity, a report claims.
Just as happened last year when Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu began to wind their contract down into the final six months, Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli are the two this year who are heading towards leaving Milan on a free transfer, with the former having arrived in 2017 and the latter back in 2015.
According to this morning’s edition of Il Giornale (via MilanNews), Romagnoli would like to stay at Milan where he is happy and is the club captain, but for the moment there is no agreement between the parties on the salary he would receive to extend.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have put forward a four-year extension with a salary almost halved compared to the current €6m net per season so the negotiation is now stalled, with Juventus remaining at the window in the event he decides to leave.
La Gazzetta dello Sport also confirm that Juve boss Max Allegri is a fan of Romagnoli as they picked out 50 reasons that Milan’s game against the Bianconeri on Sunday should be fascinating.
