GdS: 90 minutes separate De Ketelaere and Milan as €35m blitz is ready

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are determined to secure the arrival of the talented Charles De Ketelaere this summer. After their initial offer was scrapped by Club Brugge, a new one is now ready to be put on the table, a report claims. 

The Rossoneri are looking for a quality player to reinforce the attacking trio and De Ketelaere is their No.1 target. The youngster, aged 21, can play both to the right and also in the centre, which is a huge bonus for Stefano Pioli.

In the last few days, the negotiations seemingly slowed down between the clubs and there is a good reason for that. As per Gazzetta Dello Sport, Milan have agreed to wait until after the Belgian Supercup (taking place tonight), but then they will attack.

Leeds United came in with a €37m offer a while back but De Ketelaere made his presence clear then: he wants Milan. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will table a new offer for Brugge tomorrow, per the report, which will be worth almost €35m including bonuses.

De Ketelaere will receive a salary of €2-2.5m per season which is more than double what he currently earns (€1m). The new offer should be the decisive one, seeing as the player is pushing for Milan and Brugge will make a good profit at €35m. Tomorrow, therefore, could be a hot day.

  1. I sincerely hope this story finally ends happily! All this transfer events are taking too long. I know no one has money to throw away, but everything goes kind of hard and too long with us. Pioli’s waiting for reinforcements for the team.

  2. Going to have to move because Leeds are making it very apparent how important he would be to them and with the Raphinha sale done they have the cash burning in their pocket.

  3. It was obvious for weeks that Brügge wanted him to play in the belgian supercup.. the transfer will be done next week.

  4. I dont really agree CDK plays as RW, his best pos is AMC. CDK can give Lazio hard times at Friendly, so its right to choose CDK as first choice AMC.
    But Wingers at Pioli’s Milan isn’t Inverted Winger type like Samu Castilejo & Suso. And CDK will play like Inverted Winger if he go RW, because he get used to be playmaker, not penetrate fast & agile.

    I might even prefer Saelemakers as RW. Saelemakers cant give impact last season because there is no good AMC who can distribute key passes like Calhanoglu. Remember when we had Calhanoglu, Saelemakers can give unpredictable & danger moves, penetrations & crosses. Without any good AMC, Saelemakers cant perform good. Because he isn’t Leao who enjoy 1v1 scenario. Saelemakers is good with his movements, build up play & find / making spaces.
