GdS: Kessie wants salary in line with Ibrahimovic to renew his Milan contract

By Isak Möller -

Franck Kessie’s contract will expire in 2022 and Milan are working hard with his agent to reach an agreement on a renewal. However, the talks are far from easy and the parties are trying to bridge the gap. 

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, as cited by MilanNews, Kessie has made it clear that he wants to stay at the club despite interest from Premier League. Having said that, his contract demands are also significant.

In order to renew his contract with Milan, he has asked for a salary in line with that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, which would be €7m per season. The solution to getting this number down a bit could be a medium-term renewal.

Instead of a five-year deal, which was the initial plan of the club, they could settle for a two-year renewal. This would give them more time to handle the situation for the future and keep away the potential suitors for now.

    Another “Donnaruma-esque” saga… Either pay or sold

  2. Dos Santos says:

    Pay him and renew his contract this season or sell him now.We can’t lose another star player for free and don’t forget Romagnoli too renew his contract now or sell him now we can swap him with Coutinho.

    I have seen this when they decided to sign ibra. Maybe back then was a good thing but was also a precedent. Now, every player who plays well will force the hand of maldini and for a good reason: if you pay ibra 8 mil and he is injured half a season, why can’t pay me ( the pillar) the same wage?

    Yes, now it makes sense why these guys are making demands.

    Pay kessie whatever he demands, because he will earn double that amount elsewhere.

  5. Geekondrum says:

    We need to be careful of a massive exodus in the near future.

    Big clubs are pumping money outrageously into the game. FFP don’t stop these players.

    It’s high time we step up and start looking at better strategies of keeping our capable hands (players)

    Kessie played almost each game last year and was consistently good..best player in our squad..pay the man his money..at least so that you sell him for profit if he decides to go.
    Pay Kessie his cash

  7. Agu says:

    They should loan him out. If they cannot then he should be taken off penalties and kept out of the European Championship team. Milan must act bitterly against these average players holding them to ransome or they will lead the club to bankrupty.
    Gigio earning less than Milan offered him tells u why those who like the captain want to run down their contract should be excluded from the Euro championship.

    Dear Kessie! You are not Zlatan!
