The presumption was that another midfielder would not arrive at AC Milan unless Rade Krunic was sold, but it seems that might not be the case.
According to the information from our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, Milan are working on the renewal of Krunic. The Bosnian midfielder was never really close to a transfer to Fenerbahce, and will use interest of the Turks to obtain a pay rise.
Milan CEO Giorgio Furlani is seemingly working to offer the former Empoli man which would see him double his current salary of €1.2m net per season.
With the renewal of Krunic, Milan would thus ensure the permanence of the only player really capable of playing in front of the defence aside from Ismael Bennacer who, given his injury and the African Cup of Nations, will only be fully available to Pioli in 2024.
It is therefore not excluded that the Rossoneri could secure the signing of a more natural No.6. Nicolas Dominguez of Bologna, Marko Grujic of Porto and Morten Hjulmand of Lecce are the most accredited names.
There have been recent contacts with Lecce over the latter, we have learned, so it is a track worth monitoring.
