Rade Krunic is increasingly likely to leave Milan in the January transfer window with Fenerbahce still interested in the 30-year-old midfielder, reports in Italy claim.

Krunic was not involved in Milan’s 3-1 win over Frosinone on Saturday and according to Calciomercato.com, his sale in the January transfer window is ‘inevitable.’

Krunic has had reduced playing time since returning from a muscle injury in October. Specifically, he had been introduced as a substitute in the final 35 minutes of a Champions League meeting with Borussia Dortmund and only played six minutes against Fiorentina before spending the whole game on the bench against Frosinone.

According to Calciomercato.com, it is unlikely that Stefano Pioli will rely on the Bosnia international in the final games of the year. The report claims Krunic had reached an agreement with Fenerbahce over a €3.5m-a-year deal last summer and when Milan rejected the Turkish club’s offer, he expected a pay rise from the Rossoneri.

However, talks have reportedly been put on hold as Milan have offered Krunic a new contract with no pay rise, so the player is now willing to leave while the club will listen to offers in the January transfer window.

Fenerbahce are still interested in the ex-Empoli midfielder and Calcio&Finanza predicts how much the Diavoli would get from a potential sale.

Krunic’s amortised value will be circa €1.8m in January, so if the Rossoneri sell him for €10m, they will register a capital gain of €8.2m. On top of that, Milan would save a further €1.6m from the player’s outstanding salary and amortisation until June.

Krunic’s contract at San Siro expires in June 2025.
