CM: Milan hold new meeting over Kessie’s renewal but agreement is still missing

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have held a new meeting with the agent of Franck Kessie over a renewal but they have not yet reached an agreement, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com writes that Milan sporting director met with Kessie’s agent George Atangana in Bologna to talk about extending the Ivorian’s contract beyond the current deadline of 2022. However, an agreement was not reached and the wait for his signature goes on.

The Rossoneri formulated a new offer, a better proposal than the previous ones but which still does not meet the expectations of the midfielder. Milan are approaching the request with small increases which is an understandable strategy, but it still takes time.

It is for this reason that closing Kessie’s renewal before the end of the market seems unlikely and the parties will have to meet again. If Milan want to keep Kessie they will have to make a little more effort, even if the player’s requests have not changed.

    Didn’t Kessie re-assured the fans that his priority is Milan & he will sign a contract after returning from Olympics?

    How is a raise from 2.2 to 5 million is not enough??? I wouldn’t give him more than 4.

    A blatant liar is what it looks to me. Priority of his is not Milan, but the money. I don’t want these kind of players to be a part of the team, no matter how “important” they might feel.

      Pay people what they are worth. Doesn’t matter the % increase. Milan has not earned the right for player to sacrifice to play for them no team has unless they have come up through the youth system.
      Calha was not worth 5m and we were right to not offer above 4m. But you cannot debate Kessie’s worth to the team. I would give 5m plus 1m in bonuses based on Champions league qualification. He has earned it.

      1. qqq says:

        Kessie shouldn’t take a piss at the fans by his blunt statements. No need to tell that Milan is the priority when the priority is 6 million.

        1. Rosso Joburg says:

          And if Milan offered 3m? The fact that he isn’t offering himself to all the other teams like Calha did is making milan the priority. It doesn;t mean he has to accept whatever we decide.

          1. qqq says:

            3m is better than 2.2m. It is very simple — he has to be grateful for what he is offered & sign, or leave. Just like with Donnarumma & Chalhanoglu situation.

            Kessie is not that special. If anything, it was Donnarumma who was “special”, yet he is out of the team now.

  2. Savicevic says:

    The management should either renew or sell. I do not understand this management ‘stategy’ of small increases. It is clear Kessie wants 6 mil net and is not open to negotiate. Maybe selling him and bringing Kamara would fit better the new Milan philosophy

  3. Elmi says:

    Let him go with in this season because we do not need a such people.
    Go flow with your friends like,
    Donnamaney.
    Hakanmaney

      Agreed, this is not a club for gold-diggers. Try to sell before the end of the summer or let go for free on the next. No hard feelings about “such people”.

  4. Milan4Life says:

    Kisse has been greedy by this point of time. A player of heart set on Milan would happily accept 5 mils net per year which is considerably improved under the current context of economy. I kind of smell his the same as Dollarumma and Hakendolla.

    1. qqq says:

      Spot on! 5 million is a very, very generous offer. This is basically maximum amount the club can offer according to the current 5m salary cap policy.

      Continuous negotiations show only disrespect to the club & the fans. The true colors of Kessie are no different from Donnarumma’s & Chalhanoglu’s.

      There has been about 30 articles about his renewal throughout this summer alone. Enough.
