FootMercato: PSG pitch €9m salary to Kessie and open talks with Milan over January deal – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain who have a mega offer ready, according to a report.

According to FootMercato, PSG have even already taken action to try and sign Kessie, whose contract expires at the end of the current season. The first thing they have done is probe the ground with the 24-year-old midfielder and his agent, letting them know that they would be willing to offer the Ivorian €9million net per season, while the latest offer made by Milan is €6.8m.

PSG have also begun talks with technical director Paolo Maldini, and a possible deal for the January window was talked about if Kessié decided to leave the club, in order to recover a small transfer fee.

In addition to the idea that he may genuinely want a new challenge, the report speculates that Kessie could be using interest from other clubs to get the best offer from Milan.

  1. Club can not afford to pay him 9 mill and for sure can not afford to let him go for free. So if he doesn’t renew in next week or two, deal with PSG and sell him. At least we can still make some money out of him.

  2. I don’t get this though, why can PSG have contact with his agent and propose to him a contract, when he is still under AC Milan contract and he has more than 6 months left of it?

    1. They are free to contact his agent and offer him any contract they want, the contract won’t come into effect until his contract with Milan is gone or we sell to them. I say we sell, this has dragged on for too long.

    2. They can agree on personal term before having agreement with the club. It’s been done multiple times. There’s no sanctions against that

  3. Just sell the son of a bi…., how the f….he might want a new challenge on the french league a league that is way worst that serie a how is that a challenge, at least if wanted to go Spain or the premier league, i would understand but the french league that of the top 5 leagues is the one with the worst quality, the only reason that is considered 5 league is because psg. Just sell the guy or trade him for any body that at least will have a little respect and love for the milan shirt.

  4. I will bench him until january, and make Tonali play over him even Bakayoko play over him, he will warm the bench for 4 months util transfer window in january, i would not even put him on the squad list, send him on vacation until january period.

  5. So much for the “I want to be the ‘President’ of Milan for life” last month…ask 30M from PSG (negotiate to 20M in Jan).
    Thanks for everything and good luck Franck.
    We have Benna, Tonali and Baka.

  6. at this point in the Kessie saga I think I even prefer benching him all season over the money (which I think it’s too late for that, anyway) because this whole probing ground thing that PSG and other teams do is illegal to begin with, but also clubs must have a way to protect themselves from this, these clubs start “probing ground” even when the players still have 3, 2 years of contract ahead, and negotiate with the agents behind the clubs’ back and the management needs to send a message to both players and the clubs that operate like that, honestly because it’s not fair and something needs to be done and that’s more important to me now than the money we can get from selling Kessie because what are most clubs going to become then?? the premier league’s and PSG’s farm?? I still remember people making fun of Messias but at least Milan is his dream and he’s going to fight for it, these one season divas that say they love the club and negotiate behind the club’s back for months at the same time? nahh

  7. I love how they go for a “new challenge” in the most boring and unattractive of the 5 top leagues, and by accident into a club that pays most. Does anyone buy that lie? Dollarumma used that lie to try and mask that a few million more a year is enough to leave your club and not play in the CL with it for the first time. 😂

  8. Let the guy go add his money. These kind of mercineries gold diggers are destroying the beutiful game. By the way
    I still think that 11 money grabbers dont make a squad that can finally succeed. Their motto is ME ME ME. Forza Milan.
