From Casa Milan it is noted that the winter session will open in a month and a half, so it is too early to get to the heart of the operation. There is no lack of other themes starting from the contract renewals of Donnarumma and Bonaventura, the most urgent because the goalkeeper expires in June 2021 (without an extension the value of his card is likely to depreciate much next summer) and the former atalantino has a agreement even shorter, until June 30th. The contractual horizon of Romagnoli and Suso instead reaches until 2022. They will not be easy negotiations because the current policy of Milan is directed towards the containment of engagements. And Raiola is certainly not the ideal counterpart in these situations.
But obviously Ibrahimovic's argument was addressed. Indeed, it was the topic that occupied most of the conversation. Milan is among the suitors of the Swede who left the Los Angeles Galaxy. It was the first exploratory meeting between the parties to start the negotiation. An answer to the other Italian company strongly interested in the striker, Bologna, which met the player in the past few days in California with Marco Di Vaio's journey across the Atlantic. Ibrahimovic will decide what to do in mid-December. First of all, the 38-year-old striker must choose whether to continue or leave football. A very personal evaluation. In this moment, in fact, it is above all Ibrahimovic who evaluates the options available.
Distances to be reduced
Raiola cannot enter into this consideration, which belongs above all to the player. But he takes care of the less sporty part. And after today's meeting at Casa Milan the agent has a few more elements to complete the picture of the expected decision in just over three weeks. The economic demands are significant. There was talk of about one million a month of engagement. These are not easy figures for Elliott, who intends to control the salary of the Milan rose. The player should partially reduce these claims. The next few weeks will tell if the parties will be able to find a meeting point.
