MILAN — AC Milan is in talks to extend the contract with three players at once namely Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer and Rafael Leao. Meanwhile, the new deal will have an impact on an increase in the club’s overall spending.
The three players’ contracts will expire in June 2024 and the Rossoneri management are claimed to be in intense communication with the player’s agents to immediately extend their tenure at the San Siro Stadium.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported by Football Italia, Saturday (13/11) the club wants the three players to sign new contracts until at least 2026 later.
Theo Hernandez himself could get a threefold raise after what he showed the club. Currently the player’s salary is 1.5 million euros per year and with an extension of his work contract he can bring home a salary of 4 million euros per year plus bonuses.
Rafael Leao’s salary could also increase to 3 million euros per year from the original 1.4 million euros. As a result, the source claims Milan’s payroll bill will increase by around 80 million euros not including taxes.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working on a new contract issue . The two directors had previously renewed the contracts of Simon Kjaer and coach Stefano Pioli.
On the other hand, Milan’s chances are slim to keep Franck Kessie because the player is asking for a salary of 9 million euros per year. Reportedly the player will leave the San Siro in January 2022 later.
