AC Milan are not finding the renewal of Rade Krunic an easy negotiation to conduct so far, and some figures have emerged from the talks.
A number of different sources have been reporting over the past few days that Milan have begun discussions with Krunic over the extension of his contract, after the interest shown from Fenerbahce and Lyon during the summer.
As our colleagues at SempreMilan.it report, Krunic’s renewal Milan appears to be less easy than expected. In the summer, the Bosnian midfielder had an offer on the table from Fenerbahce that would have been a big pay rise, and that seems to be conditioning his requests.
The former Empoli man is now asking for similar figures to what the Turkish club proposed in the summer (€3.5m net per season), while the Rossoneri would like to settle at around €2.5m per year.
There is a distance to bridge therefore, while the fact Krunic’s contract expiring in 2025 could also prefigure his sale next summer.
Milan will be better covered in that role when they have Ismael Bennacer back again and in addition to the adapted Yacine Adli they have targeted Boca Juniors regista Ezequiel Fernandez.
