Fenerbahce Unrelenting in Pursuit of Milan Midfielder

Milan repelled the first advances from Fenerbahce for Rade Krunic, but the Turkish side remains very interested in signing the veteran midfielder. He has agreed to a four-year contract, Fanatik reveals (via Sportitalia).

The Bosnian international would triple his wages if he switched sides. His salary would balloon from €1.2M to €3/3.5M annually. He’s very keen on the transfer, although he hasn’t openly asked out.

Instead, the dialogue between the Fenerbahce and Milan to set up the departure of Krunic has been going in the wrong direction, Calciomercato informs. The suitors initially proposed €4M and then €7M through an intermediary, provided they could pay the figure through multi-year installments.

The Rossoneri initially asked for €10M but then upped their request to €12/15M. At the same time, they opened talks with the midfielder to renew his contract.

Our Take on Milan, Fenerbahce, and Krunic

If the fee gets to attractive sums, they should definitely more seriously contemplate selling him rather than outright slamming the door. While he’s solid, the fact that he’s still a starter after all their moves at the position is puzzling. They’d have to find a replacement, and it wouldn’t be tough to sign an upgrade, but they have the horses to pull off a 4-2-3-1 in the first few matches while they do it.
