CM: Romagnoli nullifies Atletico and moves towards renewal – his requests and Milan’s offer

By Oliver Fisher -

Alessio Romagnoli seems more likely to renew his contract with AC Milan at the moment than leave the club on a free transfer, a report claims.

Romagnoli has been with Milan since 2015 and as Calciomercato.com reports, he has seen three ownership changes, six different coaches and just one trophy during his over six-year stay at the club. However, last night might have made all the suffering feel worth it as he was a key performer in the 1-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid.

It was a captain’s performance from Romagnoli who continues to show his connection to Milan and how much he feels like a leader. He sets an example in training at Milanello and has never said a word out of place despite having lost his undisputed starting spot after Fikayo Tomori’s arrival.

Romagnoli will soon turn 27 which means he is at an important stage in his career, but one where he can make choices as a mature character. Last Thursday a meeting took place between his agent Mino Raiola and the management of Milan where it was conveyed that Romagnoli’s request is for a multi-year contract worth €3.5m net per season plus €1m bonuses.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are not willing to satisfy that amount and have offered €3m fixed per year plus €500k in bonuses linked to qualification for the Champions League, compared to the current €5m he gets. The parties have promised to meet again before Christmas to try to find an agreement, which seems the most likely solution.

    Good, why let another high value player leave for free? Plus, him and Tomori complement each other the best by far as long as he’s on his game.

    I always believe to Romanjoli
    I loved that guy since he was by Roma
    Bad things is he has so idiot agent
    I am happy he stood out on him.
    In past he made SK
    E mistake but every one dose.
    So give him chance.
    He is our capitan

      Captain by merit or politics?
      I don’t understand the hype around him. We play a high line and he cannot run. Check the positioning maps for the last game and see him positioned so low, next to our box, if Simone was smart he would have attached from that wing. Griezmann left him for dead in 1v1, Tomori would not have permitted that or the goal by vlahovic out pacing Gabbia last week.
      He’s good at mopping up balls but not at marking. Maldini brought in Tomori precisely because Romagnoli lacks that. That defect in his game is what keeps him on the bench.
      Captaincy in Milan was not political till it was given to Montolivo, it went haywire afterwards

    Having three starting level CBs is a must. Romagnoli can have mental mistakes but it seems every bad performance is match by one like last night. 3 million plus bonus sounds fair

    1. Abdul says:

      Yes you are correct, we are not playing him every match also as a Italian league experienced player he is most needed. And our captain when Milan had worse days, when he is reducing his salary there is no sense of not renewing his contract. He can easily get 6 or 7million salary even if he moves to Inter, but he is accepting 3 or 4 million which is best thing I like about him. He don’t have any problems even to start from Bench, for his attitude for last 11 months we should give him 4m easily.
      We will be playing 50 games atleast so we need 4best CB’s to do well and win cups
