Vitiello: Krunic ‘would like to leave’ – Milan ‘hunting’ for possible replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

Rade Krunic has decided that he wants to leave AC Milan in the January transfer window, it is claimed, and a replacement is already being lined up.

Rumours about Krunic have been rife over the past few days given that he seems to have fallen by the wayside in Stefano Pioli’s plans despite being made a quite literal centrepiece of the team at the start of the season given his position as the defensive midfielder in a 4-3-3.

According to the latest update from Antonio Vitiello of MilanNews, Krunic ‘would like to leave’ in January and contacts with Fenerbahce are progressing, the club who tried to sign him during the summer.

In addition to his lack of playing time, there are difficulties regarding the potential renewal of Krunic’s deal (expiring in 2025) because of the high demands from the player’s side. The Milan management are still waiting for an offer from the Turkish club, but seem open to a sale.

Meanwhile, Milan are continuing to keep the Assan Ouedraogo option alive and they are ‘hunting for an agreement’, but for next summer.

    1. We do have bigger needs. CB, Striker and another DM. Plus all of Pulisic, RLC, Adli, and Reijnders are capable of playing AM if needed.
      Regardless, even if they sign nobody, losing Krunic is addition by subtraction. Even he knows he is not up to the task of playing at a club like Milan. Let him go to a second rate league.

  1. The need of centerback is quite obvious- but i do think we need a good defensive midfield. I believe that is what is making the difference between us this year and last year with Tonali and the year before when we had Kessie etc. I our midfield at that time made the defense a more compact unit. We dont have that extra layer now which makes our defense extra exposed to danger and always dependant on our last man; Tomori, Maignan etc
