MN: Man Utd, Inter and Juventus rumours do not change Milan’s ideas as Kessie remains fundamental

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are relying on getting the best version of Franck Kessie back starting from the derby against Inter next weekend, but in the meantime his future is causing some concern.

According to MilanNews, Kessie will return to Italy and Milan today – presumably in the evening – after the Ivory Coast were eliminated from the African Cup of Nations on penalties by Egypt. He came off injured during that game, but the knock to his rib was quickly disposed of and the Ivorian midfielder will have no problems starting the crucial derby against Inter.

His role in the double pivot is fundamental, because he helps Tonali in the non-possession phase and has the ability – unlike all the other midfielders in the squad – to give balance and order to the team even in the most chaotic phases of the match.

He was even used as an attacking midfielder during the last game of 2021 against Empoli and he scored twice, so a repeat of that experiment cannot be excluded. However, the negative feelings regarding his renewal issue are confirmed as Kessie, in all probability, will not accept the renewal proposed by Milan.

Plenty of clubs are keen on him such as Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Tottenham plus even rivals Inter and Juventus. His future from June onwards may not be ​​Rossonero, but until then he remains valuable.

  1. Yeah I know you guys at Sempre Milan like snake players this is why no players respect the club, we let them do whatever they want as long as they rEmAiN fUnDaMeNTaL

    1. Kid, call him names whatever, you do not matter a bit anyway

      Kessie is having a bad season and still is our top player, at least he stays healthy and when he does not have to be a 3rd CB in Piolis ‘amazing’ system he delivers in front – assist to messias in Atletico game 15min after he was freed from def duties, 2 goals vs empoli. Somehow he is the worst yet others couldnt break even Porto without him.

      If Theo was not prolonging everybody would be pointing out how he did not improve too. But since hes insta kid he is loved. Nowadays social media trumps actual football output lol

      1. Top player? Dude, Milan was nowhere and Kessie was shit before Ibra came. He was about to be sold. He played 1 good season. 1 season. After Ibrahimović showed them how to train and fight. Before that where was Kessie? The general? The leader? Loser how thinks too much of himsel, I am actually happy he will leave and extremely sad we didn’t sell him for 10-15M now and get rid of that crap.
