CorSera: AC Milan could sacrifice €78m duo this summer to raise funds

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could sell both Suso and Franck Kessie this summer to raise funds for the mercato, according to a report.

It was announced on Wednesday that UEFA are set to impose another round of sanctions on the Rossoneri for Financial Fair Play breaches over a three-year period.

This appears to have thrown Leonardo’s plans for the summer market into doubt, despite reassuring comments from Paolo Maldini.

Reports on Thursday claimed that Milan consider only four players absolutely unsellable ahead of next season, but that offers would be listened to on some key players.

Now, Friday’s edition of newspaper il Corriere della Sera claims that Suso and Kessie could be two players who are sold in order to raise some funds, even with qualification to the Champions League.

It is believed that Milan have been locked in negotiations with Suso over a new deal, but the Spaniard is demanding a pay-rise that the club are not willing to rise to given the player’s recent struggles.

There is interest from the Premier League in Suso, as there is in Franck Kessie, who is set to be redeemed this summer after his two-year loan from Atalanta – but could be sold for a quick profit as Milan look to strengthen other areas.

The Ivorian is believed to be valued at around €40million, while Suso reportedly has a release clause set at around €38m.
