"I thank Fassone and Mirabelli. We hope it will be a renewal that brings us great satisfaction, both next season and also in the years to come. Thank you again everyone. Now, we will enjoy the holidays and come back fired up for a new season," Romagnoli said in an announcement on Milan's Facebook page.

Romagnoli joined Milan from Roma in a €25million deal in 2015 and had been the subject of reported interest from the likes of Juventus and Liverpool.
