Rade Krunic is now expected to stay at AC Milan into next season despite rumours suggesting he was destined for an exit, a report claims.
As reported by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive,) Krunic did seem set for an exit this summer but Milan have changed their minds regarding the fate of the Bosnia international. Milan have confirmed that Krunic will be a part of the Rossoneri squad next season despite the fact he has often been a reserve player.
His versatility however makes him very useful to Pioli as he has played as a holding midfielder, an attacking midfielder and as a left winger in the season that has just ended. He was purchased mainly as a possible replacement for Kessie or Bennacer in the midfield, but he has actually been more effective played further forward.
The former Empoli man has been defined as Stefano Pioli’s wild card and this is why Milan are inclined to keep him in the squad. If important offers were to arrive, Maldini and Massara would not close the door, but they are not actively shopping him.
