AC Milan must soon get to grips with the renewals of three players whose contracts are set to expire in less than eight months, a report claims.
This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) takes a look at the situation surrounding centre-backs Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer plus that of Franck Kessie – three key players for the Rossoneri who will all be able to walk away for nothing unless an agreement is reached.
Kjaer: There will be no problems with the renewal of the Dane, and his statements earlier in the week while away with the Danish national team prove it.
“I feel good, I like to play and enjoy life at Milan. The club knows my opinion and my position on it: when they want to resolve the matter, they also know that they can call me,” he said.
When the management do eventually contact Kjaer to discuss the extension, it will not take long to reach an agreement because the 23-year-old wants to stay and Milan has no intention of losing such an important resource for Pioli both on the field and in the dressing room.
Romagnoli and Kessie: These are much more complicated situations. The talks with the agents of the duo are open, but Milan have no intention of satisfying any demands they deem to be above the true value of the player, nor will they wait forever. If an agreement does not arrive in good time and at acceptable figures, the recruitment team will work on replacing them.
