Ismael Bennacer recently switched agents and is now represented by the late Mino Raiola’s cousin, Enzo Raiola, who has taken over the business. Franco Ordine, the Milan pundit, has shared his thoughts on the matter.
Milan have been negotiating with Bennacer over a contract renewal for quite some time now and there is still hope that an agreement can be reached. The news of him changing agents, however, hasn’t gone down well with everyone.
Speaking live on Twitch, as cited by MilanNews, the pundit Franco Ordine was asked about Bennacer and his decision to switch agents. He revealed that his first reaction to the matter certainly wasn’t positive.
“When I heard the news, I said to myself ‘bad times are upon us’. So that is what I think of the matter,” he stated.
It remains to be seen what the outcome of the negotiations will be but a player switching agents in the middle of the process is rarely a good sign. On the other hand, it seems Milan are not that far away from what Bennacer wants.
