GdS: Kessie wants big pay rise but comments from his agent give Milan a huge boost

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been given a big boost in their hopes of securing Franck Kessie’s renewal as his agent has confirmed his desire to stay.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes how Milan obviously have no intention of letting Kessie go as he is one of the main pillars of Pioli’s team, but the fact that his contract expires in a year means the matter of renewing him is urgent. In addition, there is speculation that interest has arrived from England and from the Premier League, a competitions that has always fascinated the Ivorian.

However, the representative of the midfielder – agent George Atangana – dismissed the idea with a joke: “Only a coup d’etat can send the President away from Milan.” In doing so, he sent a clear message to the management: Kessie wants to stay at Milan as long as he has a contract that reflects his importance.

The 24-year-old expects a serious proposal from Milan, with a salary exceeding €5m net per year (currently he earns €2.2m plus bonuses) and it is expected that soon Maldini and Massara will come forward to try and reach an agreement.

    If you want to stay — sign what you get offered. Otherwise f*** off.

    Simple as that.

    Omg just pay the man. He’s been running non stop for 4 years. Hes been carrying the midfield while everyone else on this team was sh*t, and now that the rest of the team has stepped up he has been one of the most important parts of the squad. And he is just enterring his prime. What else do you want from a 5M/year player ?

    You give 7 mil to Ibrahimovic and he is injured most of the season but you negociate over 5mil salary for kessie..

      Don’t be ridiculous, look at Milan results before and after Ibra. He can get 7M just to be in training and sit on the bench.

  4. Cruzio says:

    5m for Kessi is not too much considering he is the Power house of Milan midfield for a while now

  5. crorossonero says:

    4-4.5M will be enough. You always ask for more than you will accept in the end.
