At AC Milan, the next contract extension of a top performer is imminent: Ismael Bennacer will commit himself to the Rossoneri in the long term.
In recent months, Milan have already been able to convince several regular players in Fikayo Tomori, SandroTonali and Pierre Kalulu to extend their contracts - players from the second row such as Rade Krunic and Tommaso Pobega have also signed new working papers. The next player to make a long-term commitment to the Italian champions is Ismael Bennacer.
In the course of the extension, the 24-year-old can also look forward to a decent salary increase: his salary is to be increased from 1.5 million euros to four million euros plus bonuses (net figures).
After Bennacer's extension, only one major construction site remained for Maldini: Rafael Leao's contract also ends in 2024. The Portuguese star has long since played his way into the notepads of other top clubs - without an early extension, there could be a change in 2023. However, the Rossoneri are working flat out to convince Leao to stay in the fashion metropolis.
