Pay per Head Agents: De Jong wants to retire at Milan

Next week, Nigel de Jong is looking to start talks over a new deal with Milan and wants to continue playing with the Serie A side until he retires form the sport. Pay per head agents can see that this comes as very good news to many fans, as they know how important De Jong is to the club.
Many fans saw that in the close season, the 29-year-old Netherlands player was linked with making a move away from San Siro, and Manchester United reportedly had interest in acquiring his services.
But the midfielder has no plans to leave San Siro and would like to be a part of the team under the guidance of Filippo Inzaghi, Milan’s head coach.
“I want to stay at Milan and I repeat that I want to end my career here,” the player was quoted as saying. “Milan is a club with a history and an extraordinary tradition – if they cannot finish first then they must always fight to be in the top three.
“I know it is tough, I know that there are many teams as strong and organised as we are, but we have to try.
“At what point is the new contract? I know that the club has contacted my agent and there is an appointment for next week.”
This season, Milan were able to win both of their league matches, and on Saturday the team will take on Juventus, who are ready to defend their status as champions, in a match that is eagerly anticipated by fans all over the world.
De Jong and pay per head agents believe that Inzaghis’s players will be able to effectively take on Juve, and many fans can’t wait to see what will happen on the pitch when both teams lock horns.
“Juve have won the league title in each of the last three years – we do not have to discover them,” he continued. “In the Champions League they won and with conviction.
“To have the chance of success we must begin fighting from the first minute. Will it be the first real test for the new Milan? Certainly, but it will also be for them.”
