There was yet more positive renewal news for AC Milan today as the announcement of Chaka Traore’s contract extension was made official.
As MilanNews writes, Traore has signed a contract until June 2028. It is an important renewal for Milan because of the talent the winger possesses, as shown by the 8 goals and 6 assists in 30 games he got last season.
The Ivorian was a big part of the side that made it to the semi-finals of the UEFA Youth League for the first time in their history, with Ignazio Abate utilising him almost always on the left wing.
Chaka thanked the club for their faith on social media too, writing: “I’m really grateful to Milan for the renewal. Very happy and proud to continue in this club. Forza Milan.”
His growth process does not necessarily foresee a passage straight into the first team coached by Stefano Pioli, despite the fact he has been following him with interest during the season.
The teenager still has to grow and improve from many points of view, and for this reason it cannot be excluded that in the coming years he could go out on loan to be able to get experience in a senior environment and become more consistent.
