CM: Midfielder has become Milan’s rock – his value skyrockets but there are no plans to sell

By Oliver Fisher -

One of the players who has exploded recently in terms of form is Franck Kessie, who is now a bedrock of the Rossoneri midfield.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports (via MilanNews), the Ivorian has become a midfielder who balances the department and covers immense ground both horizontally and vertically.

The beautiful goal he scored against Parma is evidence of this as he found himself high up the field, scoring his third goals in as many games with a laser of a strike from 25 yards.

Kessie is enjoying constant growth and is increasingly becoming a mainstay of Milan amid their recent resurgence. Not surprisingly, he has played 122 out of 128 games since he has been here, which is 95%.

These are numbers that certify the importance of the former Atalanta man even in his less brilliant periods. His value is worth much more than the €28million spent in summer 2017 to buy him from Atalanta, but it is a matter of little interest to Milan as they have no intention of selling, despite rumours of interest from other clubs including Inter.
