Milan are not just looking to reinforce their squad with signings this summer, but they also want to lock down the stars they already have. One of them is Franck Kessie, whose contract will expire next summer.
The Rossoneri have learnt from their mistakes and won’t wait until next year to discuss the renewal, keen on reaching an agreement as soon as possible. As reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanLive), there is optimism for the renewal of Kessie.
Milan have a five-year contract in mind (until 2026) and contacts have already begun with the midfielder’s agent, George Atangana. The latter has asked for €5-6m per year, while the Rossoneri’s first offer was €4m including bonuses.
There is still distance between the parties, in other words, but the feeling is that a compromise can be made to seal the deal. With Champions League secured, Milan have even more leverage as Kessie wants to play in the competition with the club.
