Milan have rebuffed reports that their working relationship with Mino Raiola has broken down.
On Tuesday, Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that Raiola, whose star-studded list of clients includes Milan talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was not involved in negotiations over a new deal for Rossoneri captain Alessio Romagnoli.
The centre-back, who is currently out injured, will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Gazzetta’s report claimed that Milan had asked Romagnoli not to involve his representative Raiola in the discussions, with the relationship between the club and agent supposedly strained following Gianluigi Donnarumma’s exit on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Milan insisted that is not the case, tweeting: “Regarding the article published today by La Gazzetta dello Sport entitled “Milan expels Raiola”, Milan specifies that the club maintains professional relationships with all agents, without any foreclosure.”
Milan sit second in Serie A following their 1-1 derby draw with Inter on Sunday, though they are level on 32 points with leaders Napoli.
