Tuttosport: Pioli’s will a key factor as midfielder looks set to remain at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Rade Krunic could well be set for a stay at AC Milan beyond the summer despite speculation surrounding a potential exit, a report claims.

Krunic joined Milan in a low-cost deal from Empoli during the summer of 2019 but in truth he has never really carved out a leading role at the club, generally being considered a depth option in a number of different roles rather than being a starter. This has led to rumours that he could be on his way out when the window reopens, given he is in the prime of his career.

As reported by today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) though, Krunic should remain with the Rossoneri also into next season. In the one season just completed, the Bosnian played 38 games in all competitions, scoring 2 goals and adding 3 assists. Stefano Pioli is the main reason behind his stay as he is one of the players he has always relied on and admired for his tactical flexibility and his determination.

  1. He’s not going to command a large fee, he’s liked and used by the manager, very versatile and the club will need midfield depth this season – would seem strange to let him leave IMO

  2. We need players like him that can cover many roles. Not a big fan of playing players out of their position, like the Meite experiment vs Atalanta in the Home game encounter.

  3. What he lacks in talent (not that he is lacking in that area), he makes up for in energy and tenacity. He can also take a hit and keep on going. You always need someone like that when things turn ugly on the field.

  4. No. No. No. Useless. Every time he’s on the pitch it feels like Milan are playing a man down. Makes too many (fatal) errors and takes away minutes from far better players that sit on the bench because of him.
