GdS: De Ketelaere pushing for move as agent meets Maldini in Milano

By Isak Möller -

Charles De Ketelaere is pushing for a summer transfer and AC Milan appear to be in pole position for the playmaker. The Belgian’s agent was even present in Milano to meet the club, a report claims. 

Having struggled with the No.10 role this past season, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are now working on bringing in a playmaker for Stefano Pioli. De Ketelaere has been heavily linked with them as of late and negotiations are ongoing.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), De Ketelaere’s agent was present in Milano yesterday where he met with the Rossoneri management. The €20m offer made recently was to gauge Club Brugge’s stance, knowing full well they would reject it.

A new offer will be made soon and it could include a series of bonuses to get closer to the €30m requested. Leeds United put that on the table but as opposed to the Botman situation, De Ketelaere only wants the Champions League.

Milan, therefore, remain the frontrunners in the race and an agreement could be reached relatively soon.

  1. As to the preferences of the player, this is of course pure speculation, but the visist of course indicates that he is considering a move to Milano, and that M/M intends to raise the offer.

  2. The problem gets worse when Leeds offer him 50% more wages, and he has all this time to think about it… We need to act decisively if we really want this player.
