AC Milan midfielder from Algeria, Ismael Bennacer is reportedly being targeted by two clubs, namely Atletico Madrid and Juventus because the player’s position in the first team has begun to be shifted by Sandro Tonali.
Being a mainstay retainer of AC Milan when they began to show signs of revival in early 2020, Ismael Bennacer’s position has now changed slightly. The former Empoli retainer is no longer guaranteed to be a core player with the increased performance of Sandro Tonali.
According to reports from Fichajes.net and Sempremilan.com, this situation can make Bennacer think about his future with the Rossoneri. If there is an opportunity for the midfielder to leave then he is being monitored seriously by two teams, Juventus and Atletico Madrid.
Benacer himself has only appeared as a starter three times so far, but the player almost always gets the opportunity to play when he is fit even though he only comes off the bench. The rotation system is currently being implemented by Milan because they learned from last season when the team began to struggle to compete when many main players took turns getting injured or exposed to Covid-19.
That’s why Milan so far have no intention of releasing Bennacer and it will not be easy for any team to bring him in with a release clause of IDR 823 billion which must be paid in one payment. With this system, it is very difficult for the majority of teams, especially Atletico and Juventus, to be able to bring in the midfielder, unless he asks to leave the San Siro.
So far Bennacer has shown no desire to leave because he is still part of the main rotation in the midfield with Tonali and Franck Kessie. In addition, there is news about the unclear future of Kessie, whose contract period will expire in June 2022 and has still not reached an agreement on a new contract with the Red and Black squad.
If Kessie chooses to leave then Bennacer will definitely be the main option in the midfield with Tonali so he doesn’t need to leave Milan. However, with the interest of other teams, the Rossoneri will certainly start to be wary of the future of their Algerian midfielder.
