Franck Kessie’s contract with AC Milan will expire in the summer and just like Alessio Romagnoli, he could leave on a free transfer. The midfielder isn’t exactly lacking suitors and that has made it difficult for the Rossoneri.
The high demands of the midfielder have been known since the start of the negotiations, preventing the parties from reaching an agreement. With just four months left on the contract, a free transfer is now looking increasingly likely.
As reported by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), the likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Inter are all interested in Kessie’s services. The Spanish side seemingly have an advantage, though, given the player’s preference.
Kessie has decided to leave Milan, per the newspaper, and his request for a contract elsewhere is €8m per year. The Rossoneri have come up to €6m per year but are not willing to pay any more for the Ivorian.
In other words, it appears there will be yet another significant free exit from Milan, which is far from ideal after Donnarumma and Calhanoglu last summer.
