CorSera: Milan expected to start new season without Kessie’s renewal secured – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not made any significant recent progress in the renewal of Franck Kessie, according to a report.

Kessie’s contract situation has become a matter of urgency given that it will expire on June 30, 2022. The management must at all costs avoid a situation similar to the ones that saw Donnarumma or Calhanoglu leave on a free transfer earlier this summer.

According to the latest from il Corriere della Sera (via MilanLive), no progress has yet been made in this regard and there is still no agreement between Kessie’s entourage and Milan to extend his deal.

The Ivorian is asking for a substantial pay rise of up to €6m net per season from his current salary but the Rossoneri do not want to raise their bid beyond €5m plus bonuses. Kessie is now almost certain to start the 2021-22 season without a renewal sorted, so the pressure is on Maldini and Massara must speed up the talks.

A meeting with agent George Atanagana will take place shortly, in the hope that it will be the right one to finally get a signature sorted.

    This is so annoying.. The difference isn’t that high, and he justifies the demand.

      How is 1 million deemed as “not that high”? This is enormous.

      He already got his offer raised from 4 to 5 million, which I personally wouldn’t do. Now he wants even more?

      Show him to the door.

    He deserves €6m as salary. Just extend his contract till 2025 and sell him to whoever bids higher so we dont have another case of Donna and Calhgnolu

      Nobody deserves more than 5, which is the policy of the club.

      This particular guy shouldn’t get more than 4.

    Here we go again, give the man his 6millon please, he deserves more, he carried this team for a whole season, doesn’t complain, gives 100%.

      Looks like he does. Complain. A lot. About the money.

      Get him out of the team.
