Romano: Bonaventura makes decision over future with Milan deal expiring

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura has decided that he wishes to remain at the club beyond his current deal, a report claims.

Bonaventura has been with the Rossoneri for over five years, an impressive feat when you consider that – ahead of Milan’s trip to Parma on Sunday – he is the only remaining member of the squad that won 5-4 there back in 2014.

However, the relationship between the 30-year-old and Milan is threatening to come to an end. His contract expires at the end of the season, and unless agreements over a renewal are found before then, he will be free to sign with another club in June.

According to a report from Fabrizio Romano for Calciomercato.com, Bonaventura has already made his choice: he would like to stay at Milan.

The report even claims that he would be willing renew even with figures that are ‘not too heavy’ – implying he may accept a pay cut to remain at the club – especially after the bitterness of injury problems over the past couple of years.

The Rossoneri leadership for their part though have not yet made a final decision on Bonaventura’s future. It was apparently discussed in the last meeting with Mino Raiola, but more concrete talks are expected during the next summer, with the agent keen to close the deal for his client.
