Milan have put Rade Krunic on the market considering his demotion and a challenging negotiation to extend his contract. After trying in the summer, Fenerbahce continue to pursue him. The Rossoneri could indeed sign off on his departure if their offer were worthy, Calciomercato informs.
The interest from the Turkish side has fueled his personal requests. His entourage and the front office haven’t been able to concur on a new deal. His current one is set to expire in 2025.
🟡🔵 Fenerbahçe proposal to Rade Krunic remains the same since last summer, almost agreed on personal terms. He's the top target for the Turkish club.

Milan could elect not to replace Krunic should he bolt in January. Ismael Bennacer recently returned from a significant injury, becoming an extra option on top of regular starters Tijjani Reijnders, Yunus Musah, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Compared to the past window, Yacine Adli is a solid alternative now; plus, they also have Tommaso Pobega and the possibility of switching to 4-2-3-1 with three pure offensive players behind a striker.
The Rossoneri have penciled in Assane Ouedraogo to bolster the position in the future. His release clause will come into effect from May on.
Our Take on Milan and Krunic
It remains to be seen how solid the bid would be, as transfers to Turkey are rarely as profitable as one would like. His saga was one of the most unnecessary ones last summer. With the help of an injury, the coach eventually got to the best possible version of their midfield, which doesn’t include him. If Bennacer looks decent, they are sufficiently deep to avoid signing an immediate substitute.
