AC Milan have decided to sell star after he refused to sign a new contract

Rade Krunic’s contract with AC Milan expires in 2025, and efforts to extend it have been ongoing for months. However, according to reports, the talks have come to a halt, and the Rossoneri may be forced to sell the midfielder.

The midfielder started the season well but has struggled since returning from a muscle ailment. During his absence, Stefano Pioli was free to experiment with different midfield options, including Yacin Adli and a tandem (with the 4-2-3-1).

Renewal hits stalemate

According to, Milan is in talks with Krunic about a contract extension, but no agreement is in sight. The Bosnian is demanding for €3 million per year in renewal fees, which the Rossoneri believe is far too expensive, especially given his age of over 30.

The white smoke, as an agreement is commonly referred as, has yet to come, and the situation is currently more grey/black. Milan is willing to offer €2 million plus an additional €500,000, but given the player’s high asking price, they are not opposed to a sale.

Fenerbahce remain interested

The story goes on to cite a rumor from Turkish outlet Sporx, which claims that Fenerbahce would make another bid for the player. If the renewal impasse continues, Milan is willing to explore a sale. Instead of losing Krunic for pennies on the dollar, they may monetize his departure.

What caused this unexpected change of heart? Milan held hard on the €15m demand in the summer, but Pioli has since been able to integrate Yunus Musah and Yacine Adli. Furthermore, Ismael Bennacer will return in mid-December, which will help to ease the shock.
