AC Milan chief Gazidis hints at frustration with Kessie, Romagnoli contract talks

AC Milan chief exec Ivan Gazidis admits free agency is becoming a bigger issue for clubs.

Franck Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli both come off contract at the end of the season.

“Decisions are never easy. In the past, players didn't push to leave as free agents. Instead, today the clubs operate in a more responsible fashion on a financial level, whereas players and agents act as if covid never happened," said Gazidis.

“Some players have to leave as free agents for the figures they are requesting. We will continue to make decisions in the best interests of the club, remaining competitive at the top in Serie A and Europe, but we cannot ignore economic sustainability.

“I think we might've made mistakes, but all decisions were made for the good of the club."
