AC Milan have reached a verbal agreement with Chelsea and AS Roma target Franck Kessié, calciomercato.com can exclusively reveal.
The Serie A giants have jumped to the front of the queue for the exciting 19-year-old starlet and are now close to signing him.
Calciomercato’s reporter claims Kessié’s agent George Atangana reached an agreement with AC Milan on the 26th of April. This past Thursday, representatives of Atalanta informed AS Roma about the offer of AC Milan. Kessié has agreed to move to the San Siro for €1.8m per year, whilst AS Roma have only offered the Ivorian midfielder a salary in the region of €1m.
AC Milan have also promised to match Atalanta’s €28 million asking price, which is just as much as AS Roma have offered to Atalanta.
The giallorossi have reached an agreement with the club but have been failing to finalise a deal with the player’s agent who has now accepted the offer of AC Milan.
