The player’s agent Mino Raiola is said to be asking for the Milanese giants to double his client’s contract to a whopping €6m per year, and the club are subsequently considering a move to cash-in on the player this summer.

Milan have an option to sign central defender Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea permanently this summer while Simon Kjaer is also a regular at the San Siro.

The 26-year-old joined the club in 2015 and has clocked up 219 first-team appearances and assuming the captain’s armband, but he is said to be a target of both the Blaugrana and Juventus.

The Catalan club have Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti, Clement Lenglet, Ronald Araujo and Oscar Mingueza currently in those positions.
