Rade Krunic’s injury setback will not slow down AC Milan’s attempts to try and agree a contract renewal with the midfielder, a report claims.
Krunic is expected to miss around a month after sustaining a muscle problem during Saturday’s win against Hellas Verona, so now Stefano Pioli must reshape the midfield without his trusted balancer at the base of it.
According to Antonio Vitiello’s latest for MilanNews, Krunic’s injury will not slow down the negotiations for the renewal of his contract, which expires in 2025.
For Pioli he is a ‘precious player’ and during the summer window the coach himself made it clear that he wanted to keep the Bosnian despite interest from other clubs.
Milan are working to extend the deadline beyond 2025 with a pay rise to reflect the former Empoli man’s status as a leader within the team, something that attracted Lyon and Fenerbahce in the last mercato.
