It is becoming increasingly apparent that Franck Kessie’s time at AC Milan will come to an end once the season reaches its conclusion, and fans are slowly beginning to turn.
Calciomercato.com recalls how the the Ivorian left Milan for Tokyo with the promise to return from the Olympics and resolve his renewal, but six months later nothing has changed and if anything the situation has deteriorated.
We saw this first hand on Sunday when Kessie’s name was jeered before the game and when he come on, with the Curva displaying a banner reading: “Those who love Milan prove it with facts. Best regards to those who are dissatisfied.”
The cauldron of San Siro is beginning to simmer because the fans have realised that they cannot give unconditional support to a player who seems determined to abandon the club’s project after what will be five years in favour of earning more money elsewhere.
Barcelona are keen on signing him while Inter and Juventus are observing, and PSG are there too as expected. However, it must be noted that there are not many clubs who can satisfy the economic demands of Kessie and his entourage, with Milan having made a final offer worth €6.5m net per season that was not deemed enough.
Stefano Pioli encouraged fans not to boo Kessie and still deems him a key figure for the next few months, but the report adds how the feeling is that we will bear witness to other reactions such as the whistles in the Samp game.
