ML: Milan midfielder heading towards summer exit with club willing to welcome back Pobega

By Oliver Fisher -

This will be Rade Krunic’s second and last season at AC Milan as things stand, with the midfielder reportedly heading towards a summer exit.

As MilanLive writes, Krunic had suitors both last summer and in January and could have left Milan, but head coach Stefano Pioli considers the former Empoli man as a wild card who can play virtually every midfield role.

However, the playing time available for the Bosnian could be further reduced between now and the end of the season as Kessie, Bennacer, Tonali and Meite are all available for the time being, while Brahim Diaz will soon be back to deputise Calhanoglu.

In the summer, a separation from Milan therefore seems inevitable, and there is another factor that points towards a separation, namely Tommaso Pobega. The young Italian is doing well at Spezia and the Rossoneri are willing to bring him back to base in the summer.

Milan refused an offer for Krunic of about €8m from Freiburg last summer while Torino, Genoa and Parma have all expressed an interest. A fee of €10m should be enough in the next transfer window.
