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.
