MN: De Ketelaere touches down in Italy – the itinerary for his first two days at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

The long wait is over as Charles De Ketelaere is now in Italy undergoing his medical ahead of making his move to AC Milan official.

MilanNews recalls that it was a far from simple negotiation with Club Brugge but the most important thing was how it ended, and the conclusion is that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara managed to secure the attacking midfielder that Stefano Pioli so desired and they did so within the budget.

De Ketelaere will wear the jersey of the Italian champions as an offer of €32m fixed plus €3m bonuses was accepted, and as part of that Brugge will also receive 12.5% ​​on the profit of a possible future resale.

The 21-year-old landed in Milan last night, welcomed at Linate by several cheering fans and greeting them with a smile. He started his medical at 09:00 CEST at La Madonnina clinic, then he will have his sports fitness at the Ambrosiano Centre and finally will sign a deal with Milan until 2027 at about €2.5m net per year.

Tomorrow De Ketelaere should have his first training session at Milanello where he will greet his team-mates (who have had the last two days off including today) and his new head coach.
