MN: Defender opens to idea of renewing with Milan but current salary complicates talks

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face an uphill battle with Alessio Romagnoli and his agent if they are to renew the defender, according to a report.

Gianluca Di Marzio (via MilanNews) reported recently that negotiations have begun for the renewal of his contract as Milan want to extend his deal. The management plan to make him an offer, but it remains to be seen whether it is deemed appropriate or not by the player and his agent Mino Raiola.

According to the latest from MilanNews, Romagnoli has opened up to the idea of renewing his deal with the Rossoneri but it remains difficult to imagine the parties continuing together.

That is because the club captain current earns a salary of €5m net per season, accrued over the years after the last renewal he signed while the Chinese ownership were at the helm, and Milan have no intention of keeping him at that amount.

The management will make an offer at lower figures, then it will be up to Romagnoli and his agent Raiola to decide whether he will go away for free or renew after all.

    I would be Happy if he stays. Because a very good backup and depth is important. If we sign a new defender this quality, maybe need to pay 20m and 2-3m salary. So the total amount becomes the same. He is/was our captain and played good most times. He knows Milan, and Milan him. He is professional to wait on the bench. I respect his attitude. Didn’t want more to sign. Milan waited to renew because of his agent. Hope he withdraw with the agent asap. Milan is good for him. He is still young and talented Italian. Mancini never took him to the crew because he hates Milan as an inter fan. Never wants Milan Italians with his team. As decshamps. He was forced to play Theo and critiqued a lot.

      Has he really deserved to be in Italian team the last 3 years or so?

        dont you think so? even in the reserves? lets get honest, he tried lot of players, such as biraghi, pavoletti, cragno, grifo, gollini, cristante, rugani… is romagnoli not as good as any of these?

          Second that completely.

    Nice comment. I would want him to stay too. My problem is his manager. He might turn out good again tomorrow and his greedy agent Riola will start playing his dirty cards with Milan again
