AC Milan consider the renewal of midfielder Franck Kessie to be an absolute priority and are set to resume talks in the coming days, a report claims.
You could make a very strong case for Kessie being Milan’s player of the season in 2020-21 as the Ivorian took his game to the next level and became virtually the first name on the team sheet under head coach Stefano Pioli, but with his contract set to expire in 2022 some have begun to worry about his future.
According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com however, the renewal of Kessie is a ‘top priority’ for Paolo Maldini, Ricky Massara and the rest of the Milan management. A first offer of €4m net per season was launched, while the request from the player and his agent is €5m. In the next few days the talks are expected to resume and it is not excluded that it could lead to a quick agreement. Milan want to reward ‘The President’ and keep him long-term.
