Flamini: Reckons Milan can challenge for the Champions League title next season
Mathieu Flamini is eager to earn a contract extension at AC Milan.
The French midfielder's current deal expires next summer but he has just enjoyed his best season yet for Milan since his free transfer from Arsenal in 2008.
The 27-year-old scored twice in 20 league appearances to help the Italian giants win their first Scudetto since 2004.
Now the former Marseille man feels the Rossoneri are ready for a tilt at European glory next season and he hopes to earn a new deal at the San Siro.
"It is my intention to remain at this club and extend my agreement with Milan," he told the Corriere dello Sport.
"There is no rush though, we will speak in the future when the right time has arrived, but I want to stay a long time at Milanello.
"After winning the league title this year, I want to try to win the Champions League."
