Charles De Ketelaere is enjoying his fresh start at Atalanta, something that has been demonstrated through his numbers so far.
Calciomercato.com write how De Ketelaere have two goals and two assists in six games, after zero goals and one assist in a full season with Milan following his move from Club Brugge in the summer of 2022 for over €30m.
There is a difference between De Ketelaere that we saw last year at Milan and the completely different one that we are appreciating at the start of the season with Atalanta.
It is a profound change, in environment and mentality, which led the Belgian to finally become decisive after a very disappointing debut season in Serie A under Stefano Pioli with the Rossoneri.
It is thanks to the work of Gian Piero Gasperini from a tactical point of view and it thanks also to his choice, because last summer a number of different clubs came forward to show interest.
Ajax, Fulham, Wolfsburg and Real Sociedad are just some of the clubs that asked Milan for information. However, CDK wanted Atalanta and joined them on a €3m loan with an option to buy set at €23m plus €4m bonuses and a 10% resale clause.
