Tuttosport: Milan willing to part ways for just €15m but captain could defy Raiola

By Isak Möller -

Alessio Romagnoli lost his spot in the starting XI after the arrival of Fikayo Tomori, who now is an undisputed starter for Milan. Despite this, the captain seems inclined to remain at the club and fight for his spot. 

According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive), as the captain’s current contract will expire in 2022, a departure is being evaluated by Milan. They would be willing to let him go for as little as €15-20m, mostly due to the contractual situation.

Meanwhile, Romagnoli himself has made it clear that he wants to stay at the club and show the management that he deserves a renewal. As the contract will expire in just one year, though, Milan won’t take any risks this time out.

They will only keep the centre-back if a renewal is in place this summer, which could be easier said than done as Mino Raiola is asking for a substantial raise. It remains to be seen if the player will go against his agent, in other words.

    Find a compromise, personally, I don’t want him out, at least he is a decent backup.
    We should channel our funds to strengthen other departments, imagine if Donnarumma was reasonable and requested a decent salary, we wouldn’t have had to spend the €15m on a Maignan.
    Imagine adding €10m to the €15m, that should be enough to get Belotti already.
    Offer Romagnoli 4.5m salary and I think he will accept, let’s just be careful not to be penny wise and pounds foolish.

    Off topic: Icardi isn’t leaving PSG, Vlahovic is promised to Gattuso, so we have to go all in for Belotti now. He’s a decent striker who knows the league already, just try to sign him before the euros before Roco Commisso doubles his asking price.

      Why give Romagnoli an increase? He has gone from 1st choice to 3rd and his market value has gone from 50m to 35m. Can’t see why players should be rewarded for mediocracy. 3.5m is correct relative to performances.

      Yeah lets keep him and deal with bloody Raiola again….look dude we need to get these players of his of our books, no more Raiola. The Club comes first, not the player and his agent. Romagnoli has been terrible this season and he’s asking for a rise, I dont think so buddy. If Football is a business now then I dont care if he was there for the banter years, no loyalty to these mercenaries anymore. Like I said MILAN COMES FIRST……NOT THESE PLAYERS.

    3. ChazyMilan says:

      Absolutely agreed with you bro. He is decent enough for a 3rd choice center back. He should fight for his place and get a 4.5 Mil deal.

    Sell Romagnoli and buy Kabak (Liverpool declined to exercise option on him) who we wanted last winter. Then we have Tomori and Kabak as our two young exciting CB for now and the future. Yes we def need a striker and sounds like Vlahovic or Icardi are not coming. I would go for Edouard from Celtic (former PSG player). He’s young, fast, has size and can score. Belotti only if there isn’t anyone else. Not sold on him to be honest. IMO Italian strikers from small clubs coming to Milan have never done that well in past (Boriello, Destro, Lapadula, Gilardino, etc…). Bring back Poegba for backup def mid for Kessie (get him signed to extension ASAP) and sign a RW (Ikone)…then focus on back up for Theo and find ACM if Hakan isn’t resigned (he’s not worth more than 4M IMO)…
