Ismael Bennacer’s release clause revealed

AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer has a release clause. The Algerian is a transfer target of PSG and Manchester City.

In France continue to insist that AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer is a priority of PSG. The Ligue 1 giants, as reported in recent days, have submitted an offer of 30 million euros to snatch the Algerian from the Rossoneri. An offer that was immediately rejected by AC Milan.

The 22-year-old defensive midfielder, who arrived last summer from Empoli, is a key player in the club’s project and the Rossoneri have no intention of selling him.

Sources from France reveal further details on Bennacer. The best player of the last African Cup has a release clause of 50 million euros reports FootMercato. can confirm that the release clause is valid only for foreign clubs. After having spent 16 million to purchase him from Empoli, the market value of Bennacer has doubled and AC Milan strongly want to keep him.

PSG are not the only club interested in Ismael Bennacer. Manchester City too are keeping tabs on the Algeria international. City coach Pep Guardiola is a big fan of Bennacer and wants him to strengthen the midfield of the English champions. With so much interest in his services it won’t be easy for Milan to keep their player when the summer transfer window opens. The 50 million release clause will surely cause problems to the club.

After a difficult start under Marco Giampaolo, Isamel Bennacer gradually established himself as a key player for AC Milan. This season he has made 23 appearances and is considered as AC Milan second best summer signing after Theo Hernandez.
