Milan Looking to Sort Out Their Short-Term Contracts

The contracts of five Milan veterans expire at the end of the season. While there are no Hakan Calhanoglu or Gianluigi Donnarumma this time around, who left for free while having considerable valuations, the Rossoneri wish to sort their situations sooner rather than later, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The two most urgent ones are Olivier Giroud and Simon Kjaer considering their stature and significant roles. The Frenchman tailed off after a great start but remains their main offensive reference point. The Dane isn’t a regular starter anymore but has been solid when called upon.

Milan wish to keep ahold of both but will have to come to terms with their entourages. The brass is keen on offering them just a one-year renewal, not longer deals. It remains to be seen whether they are on the same page. The defender is 35 and expressed his desire to stay. Instead, the Frenchman is 37.

Antonio Mirante and Mattia Caldara are in the same contractual situation. The goalkeeper re-upped to be the third-stringer. That’s unlikely to happen again next June since he’s 40. The center-back, who’s on the mend with a major ankle injury, could depart in January if he’s healthy enough and finds a new team.

The final Milan player who’s up in 2024 is Luka Jovic. He inked just a seasonal contract. He has shown very little so far but had limited opportunities. His future hinges exclusively on how he fares.
