AC Milan have taken the necessary precautions amid what are some difficult talks with Franck Kessie over his renewal, a report claims.
According to il Corriere dello Sport (via NotizieMilan), the possibility that Kessie may decide not to renew his contract is to be taken into consideration, given that he is now less than a year from the expiry of his current deal with several clubs reported as being interested.
Milan are acting accordingly and after having secured the signings of Sandro Tonali and Tiemoue Bakayoko, more could follow too. It cannot be ruled out that both Yacine Adli and Romain Faivre arrive from Bordeaux and Brest respectively too, as Milan are strengthening the midfield because they want to protect themselves in case Kessie decides he does not want to renew.
While bolstering the midfield is important for the season ahead and the demanding schedule, it seems they are also looking beyond the current campaign.
