Milan Closing In on Two Secondary Contract Renewals

Milan are trying to handle some big-ticket extensions, but a pair of less trumpeted ones are closer to coming to fruition, as they are in advanced talks with Yacine Adli and Davide Calabria. Their captain has just a year on his deal, but he’s not a threat to leave. Instead, the Frenchman is tied to them until 2026, Calciomercato informed.

The Rossoneri want to reward the midfielder for his growth this season. He was more likely to leave than to stay last summer after being an afterthought in his maiden Serie A campaign. Instead, he has become a valuable backup and fill-in starter in a new role. He has one of the lowest salaries in the squad since he makes €800k.

Calabria and Adli are poised to stay at Milan for a few years. The fullback earns €2M annually and asks for a reasonable pay raise. He recently voiced his attachment to the team, saying he was open to finishing his career with them.

The 27-year-old is a youth product of the Rossoneri, which are also the only club he has ever played for. He has amassed 253 appearances since becoming a regular back in 2018.

Our Take on Milan, Calabria, and Adli

The sums won’t be high, so it’s a no-brainer in both instances. On the other hand, a more explosive and offensive-minded right back would complete their scheme, which tends to be lopsided when Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao are cooking.
