CM: €32m Milan midfielder makes decision over future amid Newcastle and PSG interest

By Oliver Fisher -

Midfielder Franck Kessie has made a firm decision regarding his future at AC Milan amid speculation regarding a possible exit, a report claims.

Earlier on Monday, it was reported by TMW that Everton, Napoli and Newcastle are all interested in Kessie – a player who Milan do not deem unsellable with the latter having already made an offer of a paid loan with option to buy.

According to Calciomercato.com however, Kessie has clear ideas regarding his future. The 23-year-old wants to respect his contract which expires in 2022, and wants to be part of the new project which will be led by Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick will of course have the final decision on Kessie’s future but he is interested in the idea of working with the former Atalanta man as he has the work rate and dynamism to slot perfectly into his attacking 4-4-2 system.

Kessie was purchased from Atalanta for a total of €32million when factoring in the paid loan, option to buy and bonuses that have accrued over the years, and now his residual value on the balance sheet is €12.8million.

This means that in the face of a sizeable offer arrived – one able to satisfy all parties – the scenario could change, with PSG mentioned as having interest too.
