AC Milan are refusing to be bullied when it comes to the departure of Rade Krunic this month, despite it clearly being best for both parties if he leaves the club.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri have already received a bid of €4m for the Bosnian midfielder from Fenerbache but opted not to accept it.
It did not meet the demands that Milan have set out and so far, there has not been an improved bid from the Turkish side.
Given that Krunic hasn’t played since the end of November and seems to have burned his bridges in terms of first-team playing time, Milan is taking a risk with this tactic.
Although Krunic is sidelined due to alleged back issues, it appears Pioli would not employ him in the midfield at this time absent injuries.
Milan is content with what Fenerbahce has to offer. They require bonuses in addition to a minimum predetermined portion of the transfer of €5 million.
Fenerbahce is anticipated to return with a better offer that works for everyone, as they also intended to sign him in the summer.
