There has been some attention surrounding the future of Ismael Bennacer over the past week or so as news emerged stating that he has chosen to change agent.
Just like Rafael Leao, Bennacer signed a five-year contract when he arrived at Milan in the summer of 2019 which means his current deal has less than two years left to run on it, so a renewal is needed ideally before next summer to avoid the possibility of another player leaving for free.
Calciomercato.com confirms the news that has been circling in recent days suggesting that Bennacer has chosen to rely on Enzo Raiola after having ended his relationship with his old agent Moussa Sissoko two months ago.
Why the feeling that he needed to change representative? The source states that the main basis for the divorce is the strong differences on the strategy used in the negotiation for the renewal with Milan.
It comes after MilanNews reported yesterday that the change in agent is ‘irrelevant’ when it comes to Bennacer’s will and that Sissoko was actually pushing for the Algeria international to change clubs.
