With a break in fixtures due to the international break, it has allowed the Milan management to think about some renewal situations.
If the Donnarumma and Calhanoglu situations have taught the club anything, it’s that letting a contract run into its final year is a dangerous game to play. With that in mind, there are four players with contracts expiring in June 2022 that MilanNews have provided an update on…
Franck Kessie: The growth of “the President” Franck Kessie has been exponential as he has become a vital cog in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1. The management have been active for months regarding his renewal and just yesterday a meeting with his agent was staged at Casa Milan. The midfielder reiterated that his priority is Milan, the Rossoneri have raised their offer to around €3.5m net per year. There is still distance, but there is certainly time and above all the will to continue together.
Davide Calabria: After last year’s struggles, Calabria has had an excellent season so far. He currently earns about €1m a year, and his demand is approaching €2m per season. The negotiations have not yet entered the a decisive phase yet, but the player is proud to represent the club which is an important starting point.
Alessio Romagnoli: To date we have not yet entered the hot phase of the negotiations, also because of the fluctuating performance of the captain throughout the season. It is a speech postponed until the summer, with the club obviously making the necessary assessments if the defender’s request should be too high.
Simon Kjaer: The management and coach are extremely satisfied with the Dane, but the talks over a possible renewal will be addressed next year, also to assess the physical condition of the expert central defender.
