GdS: Maldini hatches January plan as Liverpool, PSG and Man Utd push for Kessie

By Oliver Fisher -

A number of teams have registered interest in Franck Kessie forcing Paolo Maldini to come up with a plan ahead of the January window, a report claims.

According to the latest from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via, Tottenham and Liverpool have come forward from the Premier League as showing an interest in Kessie, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

The paper also adds Manchester United as a possible destination as they might have to search for an heir to Paul Pogba if he leaves the club. The negotiations over a renewal are currently at a standstill and Milan have not moved from the €6.5m net per season offer, with the player wanting €8m.

In case of non-renewal, Maldini could try to push forward Yacine Adli’s arrival from Bordeaux, where the 21-year-old was loaned back after Milan sealed his signing during the summer transfer window just gone.

  1. We can swap this guy for Dalot. I’m sure Man U would be happy with the deal. If Tottenham are serious about an exchange with Ndombele then why not? Although his wages may be an issue. Lastly, there’s Liverpool and I think getting Thiago or even Mina Mino would make some sense although I don’t know how much Thiago would demand. I think Kessie is practically gone and for some reason, I don’t feel disappointed thinking about the prospect of losing Kessie. Maybe adli doesn’t have the muscle like Kessie does but he more than makes up for that with the techniques Kessie lacks. We’ve got Bakayoko for two seasons and just maybe he can be our muscle when needed or when called upon cuz I’m not sure he’d be a starter. Throughout the history of Milan, we’ve not been great because of a single player but because of our collective effort so if one man thinks he can hold the club to ransom then I think he’s way off his rockers. Donna and Chala were effortlessly replaced so who’s this guy who thinks he’s indispensable? Enough of the Kessie saga.

  2. Get rid of the donkey . He’s been average and living up to his president of inconsistency career to date . Don’t need money grabbers here , go fleece another club like dollaruna

  3. Some call him donkey but we forget that we are here in champions leauge back with the help of kessie. How can we ignore it. He played with a little money nearly all the games without complaining. And it seems all other player will choose a way like him and other free goings. Compare the salaries in the leauge. Milan knows business but not the need of modern football.

  4. Kessie was the donkey that carried the team last season. I think it is fair for him to seek for his salary; he is still young and now is the time when he can really earn some real money. He can earn 3-4 million a year when he is over 28 years old. What he said during the Olympics were just words. Words are just words; nobody tries to read the wording in the dollar bills. We are just looking at the number that’s on it. However, he must learn from Donnarumma and Chala sagas and know that he is very much replaceable just like everyone else; especially when he is not performing well. He needs to decide to stay or to go right now.

    I will even bring Pobega back for the rotation and let him get experience playing in our system for next season sake.
