Tuttosport: Midfielder set to leave Milan after one year – offer on the table but deal is on hold

By Oliver Fisher -

Midfielder Rade Krunic seems almost certain to leave AC Milan this summer but an offer has been put on hold for the time being, a report claims.

Having arrived from Empoli last summer, many thought that Krunic would find a space in Marco Giampaolo’s XI given the pair had worked together before, but he struggled for playing time all season especially after Giampaolo was sacked.

That has led to speculation that the Bosnia international could leave after just one year at San Siro, with a number of clubs linked.

According to a report in Monday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), Krunic already has his suitcases in his hand and is ready to say goodbye his team-mates. On the table is an €8million offer from Bundesliga side SC Freiburg, and they are willing to pay up front to land the 26-year-old.

The Rossoneri have paused the negotiations so as to have Krunic available for the Europa League, and the wait could push Freiburg to look elsewhere. If the German club were to withdraw, Giampaolo’s new club Torino could launch their assault. Either way, it seems an exit is almost certain.

    Why bring costly replacement, if we have Krunic in place as a fourth option in defending midfield position! Our priority must be central defense, with Kumbulla, Milenkovic and Pezzella as options!
