AC Milan coach Pioli confident of trio signing new deals

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli is hoping for good news regarding three players' new contracts.

Negotiations are ongoing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu.

Pioli said, “The club wants to resolve these situations as soon as possible. We will get together next week, now we have to think about the current season. Then there will be time to establish next year's teams."

Pioli admits he's enjoyed working with Ibrahimovic.

He added: “In many things from the field point of view, he gave us solutions that we didn't have. Ibra is an important presence both physically and technically. He also creates many spaces for his teammates. From the point of view of personality and character he was certainly decisive."
