Simon Kjær likely to renew contract with AC Milan


It is very likely that Simon Kjær will stay with AC Milan for one or two more years. Currently, he has a contract until 30 June 2024, and renewal is the most likely scenario. Thanks to his outstanding performance, experience and leadership skills, there is no reason to end his contract any time soon.

Unfounded rumours about Simon Kjær leaving AC Milan

The January transfer window traditionally leads to many speculations about significant football players, which is thus the case for Simon Kjær. The Italian paper Corriere della Sera wrote on 17 January 2024: “Pioli's defense needs to be fixed, considering that Kjær will not have his contract renewed.” This was instantly misinterpreted my many media as if he is leaving AC Milan.

It's only speculations from Corriere about Simon Kjær leaving – which is however a very unrealistic scenario. They don't mention an official source for their assumptions, so there is no reason to think that this will actually happen.

Sky Sport wrote: "In June Milan will most likely say goodbye to Kjær." But once again, no source was mentioned. Which leaves us with unfounded rumours.
