AC Milan have opened talks with Club Brugge over their youngster Charles De Ketelaerae, with the aim of reaching an agreement this summer. In fact, the attacking midfielder is one of their primary targets.
This was reported by Daniele Longo for Calciomercato.com this evening, stating that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will do ‘everything’ to bring De Ketelaere to Stefano Pioli. This past season, the 21-year-old scored 18 goals and got 10 assists.
Milan have opened talks with Club Brugge, per the report, and the demand from the Belgian side is currently over €30m. The Rossoneri are confident that this can be lowered, though, and they will try hard to sign the youngster.
De Ketelaere can play almost everywhere in attack and there’s no doubt that he would be a great signing not just for the future, but also the present. It remains what the initial talks will lead to, but the negotiations are on.
