GdS: Liverpool and Spurs also keen as Milan could be forced to sell star midfielder

By Isak Möller -

Franck Kessie’s contract with AC Milan will expire next summer and an agreement seems to be far away. It’s not exactly a surprise, therefore, that several big clubs have been linked with the midfielder. 

As was reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport this morning (via MilanNews), Milan have already put their best offer on the table: €6.5m per year. Meanwhile, Kessie is asking for a salary of €8m plus an additional €2m in bonuses to renew his contract.

It gets worse for the Rossoneri, as Paris Saint-Germain aren’t the only ones interested. As added by the newspaper (via MilanNews), Liverpool and Tottenham are also keeping tabs on Kessie, given his qualities.

The Premier League clubs obviously have more resources than Milan and would be able to offer a very high salary to the No.79. With that said, the Rossoneri are somewhat confident that an agreement can be reached in the end.

    If he wants to go, let him go. I prefer a Milan team with faithful youngsters, even if we lose every match, than with players only interested in money.

    How can you tell that “the Rossoneri are somewhat confident that an agreement can be reached in the end”?

    If you have a chance, sell Mr. “I want to stay in Milan forever”. If he wanted to stay in Milan, he would have signed months ago.

      If I wanted to wear Milan’s shirt, I would have played for food.

        6.5 million is for food? What drugs are you on and care to share some of them with the rest of us?

    Lewis, Levy & ENIC OUT !!!

    forced to sell? how can we sell, now that the market is closed virtually everywhere? he is free to sugn for free come january so only option is to rely on him renew so, what…click bait? Not cool man

    1. Isak Möller says:

      He can still be sold in January, pre-contract or not.

      1. Eddie says:

        True but it’s unlikely unless the club is desperate and the player is willing to leave like Eriksen and Inter. Given most club are struggling because of the pandemic. It’s very unlikely frankly speaking

      2. mike says:

        sold for what exactly? come on Isak, you sound like a typical dumb white guy lying to make money and then holding the lie
        if it is not a lie then tell me, as the football expert, what Milan can expect to get for Kessie in january?
        If Maldini can’t sign Kessie, then he needs to resign as youc ant lose your company 50 million Euros and keep their job, and you keep lieing you shouldnt keep your either

        1. Eddie says:

          Inter got Ericksen 6 months before his contract expires. It is possible but unlikely. You’re quick to judge when you don’t know your facts. Ericksen was sold for $20 at the time. That’s way less than his actual value, it’s best to get something rather than nothing.

  6. Juro says:

    Another disaster by management if true. So much for waiting and believing Kessie would sign for below his market value lol. We cannot let him leave for free like Donnaruma and Hakan. Sign him to 8m or whatever then sell. EPL teams and PSG will not be scared off by an 8M/year salary unlike Italian clubs. Sign the SELL his ass. But do NOT let him leave for zero transfer fee. Replace him with Kamara And/or Renato Sanches and use the rest of the $$ on Faivre

    1. Eddie says:

      I don’t blame management entirely for it. But they need to work on contract a year or 2 before it expires something Maldini abd co have yet to learn. Most club renew once player have 2 years left.

      1. mike says:

        Then who is to blame? This is the same thing as Dollarumma. If Maldini didnt learn from that then he needs resign. Full stop.
        Should have said Kessie needs to sign by august 15, or be sold. Could have sold him and bought Vlasic outright, and we would be a way better team. now he is going to PSG or Liverpool for free
        unforgivable and absolutely the blame is entirely Maldini’s

        1. Eddie says:

          Maldini has done a better job than and other Milan director from the past decade. You’re butthurt over a few player that obviously doesn’t want to stay. vlasic for 30 millions when he’s from the Russian league and barely know is over priced. Just like when Milan purchased Hakan, Conti and Biglia theirs no telling he will fit right away. Can’t waste $30 millions like when you’re cash strap. I wonder if you understand rules and regulations in football. You keep saying none sense in your comments

    2. Eddie says:

      Milan should have start to work on everyone contract since the winter with Donarunma saga and Hakan. If I was them, I would offer Bennacer and Theo a renewal ASAP. They probably will until their final year.
