Rade Krunic has had a sizeable offer from Fenerbahce to mull over for a few days, yet he does not currently seem close to joining the Turkish club.
According to MilanNews, Fenerbahce have offered Krunic €3m net per season which is obviously a tempting proposal given it is double what he gets currently Meanwhile, Milan have asked for a €12-13m offer to even begin negotiations.
Offers of the kind – not even inferior ones – don’t seem to have arrived, so much so that Milan are determined to listen to Stefano Pioli on the future of the Bosnian midfielder.
“The midfield as it is I like, and so for me it would be complete. Rumors about Krunic? Do you think I let a player play who doesn’t train well or with his head in another place? He tells me something else with his attitudes. it’s the words that count but the attitudes and Rade has never been wrong about this,” he said after the Monza game.
Krunic is very unlikely to leave Milan this summer, also because he carved out an important role in the Scudetto campaign and in last season’s excellent Champions League run while being ready to be a protagonist in the new Milan that is being born.
Pioli will keep him as a starter in the new midfield, deploying him – as already seen, with mixed results – in the summer friendlies as a resgista in the 4-3-3 formation.
It would be a new role for the Bosnian, but at 30 Krunic has the right experience and reliability, according to Pioli, to do well even in an unknown role.
