AC Milan news: The Rossoneri defender Pierre Kalulu opens up on his contract situation at the San Siro.
Kalulu joined the Italian club from Ligue 1 outfit, Lyon, in the summer transfer window of 2020. He has played 48 league games for Milan so far, scoring two goals.
The 22-year-old defender was part of the Rossoneri squad that won the Serie A title during the 2021-22 season. He is seen as a future star by the club’s hierarchy and they are in touch with him to extend his contract.
The Frenchman’s current deal at the San Siro will expire at the end of the 2024-25 season.

The Rossoneri defender Pierre Kalulu sheds light on his future at the San Siro. Speaking to the media, he said (via Fabrizio Romano): “If all goes well as now… that we win titles.
I play as a starter, there is only the desire to continue here at Milan. There will be time to talk about the contract with the managers”.
According to CalcioMercato, Kalulu currently earns €400,000 net per season. The Milan-based club is willing to triple his salary to €1.2 million per season, whereas the Frenchman is looking to fetch close to €1.5 million. The two parties have scheduled a meeting later this month to resolve the final details of the deal.
Milan is interested in signing Real Madrid star
According to reports, AC Milan showed interest in signing Marco Asensio last summer but the transfer failed to materialise.
However, they are still monitoring the progress of the Spain international and seem to be interested in signing him for free when his contract with Real Madrid expires next summer.
Asensio has been a key performer for Madrid since joining from Mallorca in 2014. He has played 162 league games for the Spanish giants so far, scoring 28 goals. He helped the Blancos win over 10 major trophies, including three La Liga titles and three UEFA Champions League trophies.
However, he has struggled with his game time recently and has played just 12 La Liga minutes so far this season. He is unlikely to extend his contract at the Bernabeu Stadium unless there is a drastic change in his role at the club.
AC Milan is currently fifth in the La Liga table, with 14 points from seven games. They will next go up against Empoli in a Serie A game on October 2.
