GdS: De Ketelaere day is finally here – all the details of the €50m+ operation

By Oliver Fisher -

After weeks of negotiations and reports that seemed like they were never going to end, Charles De Ketelaere day is finally upon us.

As confirmed by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via, in the next few hours De Ketelaere will travel to Milan and he will arrive in Italy between the afternoon and the evening today. Then, he will carry out the entire process of medical examinations, the sports fitness test and the signing of his contract tomorrow.

They were long and tumultuous negotiation for De Ketelaere and in the end the Rossoneri got over the line. Milan will pay €32m fixed for the 21-year-old playmaker plus €3m in bonuses, while the player will be made to sign a five-year contract of €2.2m net per season.

That makes the total operation over €50m when adding together the €35m transfer fee plus around €16-17m in gross salary over the duration of his deal when factoring in the Growth Decree tax relief scheme.

On Wednesday, De Ketelaere should meet with the rest of the squad given and say hello to his new team-mates given that Stefano Pioli has given the team two days of rest after the friendly win against Marseille.

  1. Welcome to Milan, CDK.

    CDK’s intelligence with ball on his feet is exactly what was missing in the RW for us. CDK is a player who can make good plays from both center and right. Would be perfect in our first team. Leao, Adli, CDK.. It’s a great attack.
    Best of luck and best wishes.

    Forza Milan.

  2. Sad to say it but I think Milan are fed up with alexis that’s why they went in hard by buying his fellow Belgium college to replace him. And he (Alexis) knows it pretty well, I Have been observing Him and he seems to be off I can see it.Still grateful for what he has done prior to when he signed his new Contract with Milan
