Romano: Kessie wants ‘more than €8m’ to leave Milan – why Liverpool are not in the race

By Oliver Fisher -

Liverpool are not likely to be one of the clubs in the running for Franck Kessie because of his salary demands, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It seems as though the renewal situation surrounding Kessie is currently at a total standstill and therefore the Ivorian could follow the road led by Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu in leaving on a free transfer. There is currently an unbridgeable gap between the management’s offer and the demands of the player’s entourage, which is attracting suitors as per multiple reports.

Liverpool have been repeatedly linked with a move to sign Kessie in order to bolster their options for the midfield, but it seems that the 24-year-old will command a big salary to leave Milan on a free transfer which has put them off.

Romano told Empire of the Kop: “I guess if he’s going to leave AC Milan as a free agent, he wants more than €8m net per season. It’s a lot of money. I think Liverpool want to go in a different way for salaries too and I think they’re making a good decision on this.”

  1. I just hope that when he leaves, he gets what he’s asking for cuz it’d be a real shame if he gets less than he’s demanding at his next club like a certain someone.

  2. Don’t compare Kessíe to Dollarumma. Even if Kessie leaves he will still stand in much higher regard. Hopefully Kessie can help bring home the scudetto before he goes.

    1. Not really, Donnarumma did not say that he wants to stay in Milan til the end of his career and that there will be no problems with renewing the contract…

  3. The 9 Million Dollar Man really showed Liverpool what they could get for that kind of money… No wonder Pool isn’t interested anymore. =D
