Journalist says Milan could sell Kessie for ‘€25-30m’ to finance centre-back signing

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are looking for a centre-back on the transfer market as a result of Simon Kjaer’s injury, which will keep him out for the rest of the season. In addition to that, the Franck Kessie renewal is yet to be sorted. 

In short, it could be an eventful January window for the Rossoneri as they want to compete for the Scudetto this season. The injuries have troubled them enough this season and now reinforcements are needed.

According to journalist Enzo Bucchioni, in his latest editorial for TuttoMercatoWeb, Milan could sell Kessie in January as the renewal remains complicated. However, it would require an offer in the region of €25-30m.

They could then use that money to finance a centre-back signing, with Sven Botman of Lille on their radar. It’s also possible that they could turn to Chelsea again, having signed Fikayo Tomori from them in January this year.

    Kessie out, De Ketelaere in.

    Play Kalulu

    Sell Kessie. We can count on Baka

    1. Cruzio says:

      Baka is not reliable. Strong but sloppy. Not so confident with balls going forward. So much misplaced passes and costly mistakes.. I would like a more agile DM with attacking minded characteristics

    2. mike says:

      Baka can’t keep possession, can’t pass…to his team mates, can’t track back. He needs to go back to the academy and learn the basic.

  3. Jerry says:

    Why would any team pay money for Kessie to Milan when he will be a free agent in June?

    1. Chris says:

      Guarantee they’d get him this way. As a FA, he could do anywhere to the highest bidder. This way, they ensure they got him and may be able to get him at a lower wage than as a FA.

  4. SheerWill96 says:

    I don’t know the credibility of this news but if true, it’d be crazy to turn down such offer. That’s crazy money for a guy whose contract expires in six months.

  5. Juro says:

    Ya right – who the hell is gonna spend 30M for Kessie when they can get him for free in Summer??? I wish that would be true but hard to see it happening. Perhaps we can get a small free 5m maybe 10M if we are lucky – but 30M? Wishful thinking at best.

    1. Nino says:

      Dream big. Newcastle can buy him for that amount and still offer him the fat salary he wants. Hope they do anyway.

  6. Cruzio says:

    He is wanted by many Clubs so YES , its possible an offer like say €20 will come from the Club that want to act the fastest. Wish it happens

  8. Zoro Caloro says:

    1. Not happening. 2 we are going to need a mid if kessie leaves this year rather than a CB. Also I have faith in Gabbia and Kalulu as backups.

  9. Gunde says:

    The simple fact is none is going to buy Kessie in January due to African Cup of Nations – he will be away anyway.

    1. Chris says:

      They are talking about canceling the African Cup of Nations now.

  10. DP says:

    Baka is a hot mess at Milan.

  11. Peler says:

    Whenever bacca was played as starter we lost or draw

    1. Shal says:

      He was good in last UCL games against Liverpool and Atletico. But he mostly played as attacking midfieldier rather than defender.

  12. bb says:

    Kessie has left Milan already. His mind is elsewhere is not good for the team anymore. Sell him if someone will buy.

    Even Krunic is better in that role nowadays.

    1. Mustapha Muhammed ali says:

      Why are you saying this bro…..is there any DM that is better than him I mean that will replace him in the team for now

  13. Shal says:

    It would be great to sell him for that money. I don’t think someone would pay 30mill but who knows?

  14. Windx says:

    Just sell kessie!!!!
