CorSport: Milan have new five-year deal for star midfielder on their agenda

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are looking to resolve the future of midfielder Franck Kessie by agreeing a new long-term contract, according to a report.

Since the beginning of 2020, Kessie has become the soul of the Rossoneri midfield and has finally become one of the best midfielders in Serie A as his potential suggested that he could be.

If the Donnarumma and Calhanoglu situations have taught Milan anything though, it’s that waiting until the final year of a player’s contract to sort out their future is not an advantageous starting position.

As reported by Friday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), the Rossoneri management have begun to think about the renewal of Kessie’s contract even if there has not yet been a direct meeting yet.

The will is clear: the club want to keep the player and will offer him a new deal with a pay rise, and the midfielder has put a stay with the Rossoneri at the top of his priorities.

In recent months, several teams have come forward, including Monaco and West Ham, but he has always preferred to think only of Milan. After the Donnarumma, Ibrahimovic and Calhanoglu cases are sorted, a five-year extension for the Ivorian will be addressed.
