CM: Romagnoli happy to take substantial pay cut as agreement over Milan renewal is near

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Alessio Romagnoli are moving towards extending what is an over six-year relationship together as a renewal now seems close, a report claims.

Romagnoli joined from Roma back in the summer of 2015 and he instantly established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet, even getting the captain’s armband as a reward for his consistency and his loyalty the club having renewed his contract part way through.

Now, however, his deal has just a few months left to run and he is no longer a guaranteed starter given the presence of Fikayo Tomori and Simon Kjaer. Calciomercato.com report though that the Milan management are working on a renewal with Romagnoli and the club feel they are close to an agreement for the renewal.

The player is ready to say yes to an offer of around €3.5-4m net per season, lowering his current salary by about 30%. More news is expected shortly on this front but everything suggests that a deal will be struck, as per the source.

    Please be true.

    And not because he is some awesome defender and our defense would be worse without him. But because he would prove himself as a great Milanista and a true captain. And even with all his flaws, club would still be lesser without him.

      Yes i agree, he could definetly get more if he left on a free. We should acknowledge his loyalty – although he is still very well paid! He’s a good defender and worth a place in our team, he sometimes seems to lose concentration but there are far worse players, and replacing him would be a risk too.

    Pioli should should drop one of put him next to kjaer and tomori to regain his confidence. Because Theo look shaky sometimes. Until we have a good right winger.
