Pedulla: Future of Milan star still to be written; Atletico and Barcelona lurking

By Oliver Fisher -

The future of AC Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli is ‘still to be written’ after the defender changed agents, one journalist claims.

Romagnoli recently decided to split with Sergio Berti and choose Mino Raiola as his new representative, and numerous reports have suggested that Raiola will attempt to get his new client a pay rise.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Nicolo Schira stated on Twitter that the centre-back is currently on a deal which sees him earn €3.5m net per season until 2022, and that Raiola is pushing for an extension until 2024 and a pay rise to €4.5m annually plus bonuses.

According to the latest from Alfredo Pedulla on MilanNews.it, the subject of an extension to 2024 was addressed in a meeting between Milan and Raiola last week.

Sooner or later it will be necessary to arrive at a solution, he adds, with two big LaLiga clubs at the window for next summer: namely Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Pedulla concludes by stating that the two clubs conducted in-depth enquiries over Romagnoli a few months ago, but that the Diavolo did not want to lose their captain.
