Milan are yet to hold any talks to extend Alessio Romagnoli’s contract at the club and Lazio are emerging as an option for the Italian.
Daniele Longo has reported that it looks increasingly likely that this could be Romagnoli’s last season at the San Siro, especially since the club is yet to open talks to extend the player’s deal.
The reasons for that are purely economic. Milan believe that Romagnoli’s current wage is too much for his position in the squad. He earns €6 million per season and in an agreement which was struck by Massimiliano Mirabelli back in 2018, the starting base was €3.5 million but the payment went up to €6 million on the basis of bonuses.
Milan don’t believe that Romagnoli deserves that and Lazio are now circling. Even to join the club he supported, Romagnoli would have to lower his salary, as Claudio Lotito isn’t looking to hand him the same salary that he earns at Milan.
