AC Milan are hopeful that their mission in Belgium to sign Charles De Ketelaere will be successful but there is a Plan B in place, a report claims.
Claudio Raimondi reported for Sportmediaset (via MilanNews) that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will have a meeting with the Club Brugge management today and from that it will be understood if the offer of €30m plus €5m in bonuses will be enough.
There are no certainties that it will make the Belgian side accept but there is cautious optimism because the player wants Milan and the competition from Leeds United can now be ‘ruled out’, contrary to reports in England suggesting they are still on stand-by (via TEAMtalk).
The player could return together with the management on the same private jet and then tomorrow undergo medical examinations. However, if things were to not go to plan that Hakim Ziyech would be the back-up plan.
Meanwhile, Milan have a meeting planned with Fabio Paratici and the agents of Japhet Tanganga. The Diavolo are asking for the player on loan with an option to buy, while Spurs want it to be an obligation.
