Jacobone: Tottenham put €40m on the table in attempt to sign Milan star for free

By Isak Möller -

Franck Kessie’s contract with AC Milan will expire next summer and the Rossoneri are thus working on a renewal, which has proved to be a bit difficult. There is still distance between the parties, with contacts ongoing. 

Meanwhile, as reported by Alessandro Jacobone, the agent of Kessie (George Atangana) has also been in contact with other clubs. Tottenham are one of them as they have put an offer of €8m per year for five years on the table.

They have also included a hefty commission for the agent in question, which could favour them in the long run. As stated by the journalist, though, Milan are still ahead in the race as they are the player’s preferred choice.

Fabio Paratici, former Juventus sporting director and now at Spurs, is determined to sign Kessie on a free and Milan fans are right to be worried. Weeks after what seemed to be reassuring words at the Olympics, the midfielder is yet to renew.

    1. Who would step in and at what price do you think will buy him? Which of the big ones is desperate for a MF and will not wait until January to agree with Kessie for free? In any case, I don’t believe we can sell him at a good price to get Kamara, Vlasic and a RW…

      1. We definitely need to avoid losing Kessie for free, just like Donnarumma and Calhanoglu. So any sum we could receive is a bonus. The management should address this issue properly this time. In case we sell Kessie to Tottenham for 10 mil (given his contract situation), the best replacement solution is Kamara (OM needs to decrease the salary budget). Vlasic can be available for a 2-year paid load with obligation to buy (similar to what Juventus did with Locatelli). As for RW, Sarabia or Corona are good additions

        1. Savicevic I agree with you Kesie should be sold he is not a player in the middle, he is slow and absorbs the game a lot. For 40 – 50 mil. Milan can buy 3 players and that is important. Well done

        2. Those who have written that Kessie may go are a bunch of idiots who know nothing about football.
          Kessie is Milan’s greatest asset and the team’s best player. Letting him go would be sheer madness.
          Maldini and Massara should extend his contract straightaway and meet his demands.


    2. If you don’t know what to say, just shut your fucking sticky mouth…. Probably you are not a Milan fans, I guess….

    3. I agree if someone offers 50-60M then we have to sell as we will not match 8M per season plus commissions to his agent. And I agree with you that Kamara is the perfect replacement and we could get him at a bargain. Add Yacine Adli and RW (Ikone) and we are solid. Sell Romagnoli too if we doesn’t resign and get Kabak instead. He’s also avail for cheap. Players who don’t sign sell. Period.

  1. Give Kessie the €6m he asked for. Let him sign for another 3 yrs and sell him next summer for €60m and use his proceeds for Kamara . I still hope we succeed in getting Adli for €8m in the coming days. The management still know better

    1. Kessie agent asked for a 7 mil net for renew. Step by step we go for another saga here. We risk to lose him for free. Either we like it or not, we need to sell. The fact that the player has not renewed yet, despite the last ofer presented by the management (5 mil plus easy to get bonuses to 6) is a strong signal that his entourage is not willing to negociate

    2. I agree. I just have bad feeling Elliot won’t pay Kessie 6M or more….feels like another Donnaruma situation all over again.

  2. Sell Jessie and buy Bernado Silva. Quality players are there so why can’t Milan lure them to San Siro and stop Vlasic or whatever?

  3. Kessie needs to be renewed. He is way too good and important to the team to let him leave. Pay him and be done with it.
    If we allow every starter to leave and exchange them with too young or too old players we will go nowhere.

  4. Looks like Milan is going to have another situation where players leave for free because the players don’t want to agree offers because they see the club want to invest small amounts of money on young players which is good but once the players have grown/develop into players who is considered 1 of the best in their position the club fail to l continue to invest in the players they have groomed so if kessie leaves for free next I hope the owners sell the club to new owners who will see things differently when it comes to buying,selling, renewing of players because clearly the way things is going now Milan will not win the schudetto, champions league or other smaller competition cups in Italy because they refuse to keep the players and keep them happy. If Milan want to build on their “project” and win trophies again spend the extra money it will be worthwhile at the end of the season when the team has won a trophy or more… Forza Milan!!!

  5. That “sustainability plan” that Elliott Management are going with seems to be pushing every player out the door for free, all for +1-3mil x 3-5yr discrepancies. Do the maths. Does not seem sustainable, especially since these players cost +10mil in transfer fees just to get them to Milan in the first place. I hope the Elliott accountants know what they are doing, as it doesn’t seem that way at all.
