Rade Krunic is getting closer to a January exit, having fallen out of favour at AC Milan recently. According to a couple of reports, Fenerbahce is still keen and are preparing an offer of €5m for the midfielder.
Krunic remained on the bench against Frosinone on Saturday evening, as Stefano Pioli opted to bring on Yacine Adli, Ismael Bennacer and Tommaso Pobega instead. A pretty clear signal from the manager, who also has reverted to a midfield tandem rather than a three-man midfield.
According to Daniele Longo, Krunic’s exit is getting increasingly closer and he already has an agreement with Fenerbahce worth around €3.5m per year. Around €1m more than Milan are willing to offer, and it should also be a three-year deal.
As added by Sporx, Fenerbache are ready to put €5m on the table for Milan, who asked for over €10m in the summer. The feeling is that this won’t be enough to get the deal over the line, but just a couple million more could do the trick.
In any case, Pioli will be able to rely on the qualities of Bennacer in the upcoming weeks and it will be even tougher for Krunic to get playing time. It might be worth playing him a bit, though, so that the value doesn’t drop too much.
