Tuttosport via are reporting that AC Milan are planning on working on the renewal of centre back Simon Kjaer following his impressive season and his stand out performance at the UEFA Euro 2020 all the wat to the semi finals. The defender has an expiring contract in the summer of 2022. Contacts are expected with his agent Mikkel Beck to discuss a way forward. The 32 year old will likely receive between a 1 and 3 year renewal to be a leading figure for the defence and a voice in the locker room. His salary is not expected to rise significantly from the current 2.5 million euros per year.

Nicolo Schira is now reporting that Milan plan on discussing a new deal with Kjaer when he returns from his break where they aim for a renewal until 2023 and could offer him the captaincy, this is an odd situation as Romagnoli seems likely to remain.
