Sky: €5.8m offer and months without contact – background on Kessie talks and current situation

By Oliver Fisher -

The stand-off between AC Milan and Franck Kessie over his renewal has been going on for months without update, according to one journalist.

Manuele Baiocchini spoke to Sky (via MilanNews) about the future of the Ivorian and confirmed that there is ‘no big news’ regarding the 25-year-old. The parties have not heard from each other since the summer, which is when a meeting took place between Ricky Massara and Kessie’s agent George Atangana in Bologna at the end of August.

During that confrontation, Milan officially presented an offer of €5m net per season plus bonuses which could make it around €5.8m, but since then the parties have not spoken again. The Rossoneri consider that their maximum offer, while Kessie has not so far wanted to take steps towards Milan from an economic point of view.

What remains to be seen now is whether Milan will make another attempt to keep him, which is possible in the event that Kessie does not receive proposals from Europe that can match his economic ambitions.

  1. Stam says:

    5.8 is not really a good offer if theo gets 5 with bonuses

    1. Adlan says:

      Maldini Massara think that we will have Pobega and Yaccine next year.

      In Theo case we only have Ballo Toure

      So they have better bargaining position for Kessie compare to Theo

      1. Stam says:

        From number of players yes, quality no. Bakayoko is usually Kessies backup.
        Pobega will be interesting, if he can adapt to Pioli 2 men double pivot.
        Still hope we release Bakayoko by end of season and play Pobega as backup. We need either Kessie and or Sanches (one could move as ACM, sanches possibly as deep playing winger.)

        If we play this summer mercato right, we can create midfield with Europes biggest potential. Even stronger than our left wing.

    2. MilanNYC says:

      Theo is a player with a much larger upside than Kessie In the past 3 seasons including the current campaign Theo from full back has 17 goals (only 2 PKs) and 13 assists. Kessie from midfield has 22 goals( of which only 3 came from open play) and 5 assist. In short, Theo is significantly better than Kessie.
