After a break of about four months, AC Milan have restarted contract talks with the entourage of midfielder Franck Kessie.
Calciomercato.com reports that the last meeting between the parties dates back to 25 March when the Rossoneri management presented a renewal offer closer to €3m net per season than €4m. The Ivorian’s request was very different and things then moved into a state of stand-by.
Kessie has shown through his performances to be one of the the most important elements of the squad alongside the other leaders in the squad, and now Milan are ready to resume talks over his long-term future.
George Atangana has been inundated with requests from LaLiga, the Premier League and Ligue 1 as Kessie has admirers in half of Europe. Now ‘the moment of truth is approaching’ as per the source, and it will be seen how much Milan are willing to offer given some teams in England would give more than €6m per year.
Kessie is happy with the Rossoneri, Milan has become his home, but business is business and now the Diavolo must show in the coming days and weeks that they are willing to give the 24-year-old a well-earned reward.
