The renewal of Franck Kessie is on stand by at the moment as the midfielder’s demands have not yet been met by the club, a report claims.
As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the player would like to stay at Milan but on his terms and the problem is that the management have their own view of the situation and are unwilling to change it.
The two parties are standing their ground on their respective positions and have not yet found a meeting point. Milan offered a five-year contract with a pay rise starting at €5m net per season plus bonuses up to, in the fourth and fifth year, a guaranteed €6.5m. The player wants between €6.5m and €7m fixed plus bonuses, which could further increase the figure.
Negotiations will go on as agent George Atangana is in constant contact with both Maldini and Massara, but the feeling is that the player must take a step towards the club rather than the other way around.
