Milan are very close to landing Franck Kessie’, and are a few details away from agreeing to a deal with Atalanta for him, calciomercato.com has revealed.
The Rossoneri have already obtained the 20-year-old’s consent, having agreed to a €2million-a-year deal, plus bonuses. Atalanta have agreed to a €28 million fee for the Chelsea, Roma and Inter target.
Despite Roma’s best efforts, it looks like Kessie’ wasn’t interested in moving there, agent George Atangana saying that “Kessie isn’t a piece of machinery, fit to be sent to the first place to come to mind. I have a lot of respect for Roma, but I’m still waiting for the right choice for my client.”
Atangana failed to show up to a recent meeting with Roma, too, the sign that Milan are in pole position.
Kessie has bought into Milan’s project, as well as the package he’s been offered.
