Tuttosport: Milan and Raiola clash over Romagnoli – the captain could be set to leave

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan may look to sell captain Alessio Romagnoli due to concerns over his renewal and subsequent salary requests, a report claims.

Sunday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by MilanLive – touches on the problems that may arrive regarding Milan’s current squad if CEO Ivan Gazidis gets his way and imposes a maximum player salary of €2.5m-a-year

Romagnoli currently receives €3.5million net per year which is obviously €1m more than would be permitted, at least according to the possible restrictions of Gazidis and Elliott Management.

If the Rossoneri No.13 does not agree to take a pay cut then it is hard to see him remaining at Milan for a long time, especially given the rumours of interest from abroad and the fact his agent is Mino Raiola.

This promises a clash between Milan and Raiola, who in reality has been evaluating international offers for his client for some time. Romagnoli is tempted by several first-class clubs, ready to exploit the cracks in relations with Milan.

The Rossoneri ‘have their backs to the wall’, the paper continues, and they will have to decide whether to make Romagnoli an exception to the new rule or whether to cash in for a capital gain.
