Franck Kessie has decided to leave AC Milan in the summer as his contract will expire and the Rossoneri are now looking for a new midfielder. One of the names that have been mentioned lately is Jordan Veretout.
The Roma midfielder has fallen out of favour under the reigns of Jose Mourinho, also after the arrival of Sergio Oliviera, and is expected to leave in the summer. Therefore, he has been mentioned as an option for Milan.
According to Calciomercato.com, Veretout asked for a salary increase to €3.5m per year in the summer but there has been no progress on a renewal since. His contract will expire in 2024 and he could leave for a reasonable amount.
Tottenham expressed their interest in January, as the report continues, but ‘stronger interest’ has emerged from Milan and Marseille in the last few weeks. It remains to be seen if Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will make an attempt to sign him.
