AC Milan’s probably signing of Charles De Ketelaere says a lot about the financial position of the club compared to Serie A rivals, a journalist has claimed.
According to what is being reported by MilanNews and Matteo Moretto, the preparation for the exchange of documents between Milan and Club Brugge for the transfer of Charles De Ketelaere to the Rossoneri is now underway.
It is also being widely reported that the offer that convinced Brugge is as follows: €32m as a fixed fee with €3m of bonuses and a percentage on the proceeds of a potential future resale in favour of the Belgian club, so the saga may finally be over.
As Eurosport journalist Enrico Turcato writes on his Twitter profile, the fact that Milan are even in for a player with De Ketelaere’s price tag says a lot about their financial strength compared to their rivals.
“Charles De Ketelaere goes to Milan after an endless chase. At the same time it should be emphasised that Milan are the only top club in Serie A in this mercato to shell out over 30 million for a player having collected practically nothing from sales,” he said.
It must be remembered that Juventus solid Matthjis de Ligt in order to be able to welcome Gleison Bremer, while Inter are expected to have to sell a big name in order to be able to balance the books.
