AC Milan have two major midfield contracts expiring this summer. Giacomo Bonaventura and Lucas Biglia have been with the club over the past few seasons and both look to be on their way out in the summer. Bonaventura joined in 2014 while Biglia joined in 2017. Bonaventura has become a hero of Milan's dark days as he was one of the most consistent and top performing players before his major injury. He is represented by Mino Raiola and is currently on a wage of 2 million euros per year. Biglia has not made much of an impact at Milan after arriving from Lazio with a lot of hype. Biglia has largely been sidelined by recurring injuries and has a huge wage of 3.5 million euros.

Bonaventura has contributed 3 goals this season but has 34 goals and 15 assists in his time at the club. Biglia on the other hand has 1 assist this season but has only managed 63 games in all competitions over the past three seasons. Biglia looks likely to exit without much objection from either party. Bonaventura is a different case as the midfielder is a fan favourite, can contribute to the side and would be a good leader to keep on the books for another year or two. The extension is difficult as Milan look to trim wages and buy players with a bigger upside but his experience could trigger negotiations given his strong rapport with other key players on the time especially fellow Raiola clients Romagnoli and Donnarumma.
