Franck Kessie and his agent have clashed over the plans for the AC Milan midfielder’s future, according to what one journalist is reporting.
Milan have been locked in talks with Kessie and his entourage over the extension of his current contract which has a deadline of June 2022, but so far virtually every major source has reported that they have not made much progress due to a gap between offer and demand.
According to Rudy Galetti on Twitter, Kessie would actually like to stay at Milan, but it is his agent George Atangana who is pushing him to go elsewhere. He wants to secure a higher salary for his client but perhaps more importantly a large commission for himself.
The request to the Milan management for Kessie to renew is €9m net per season, which is in line with the offers of three other clubs that Atangana already has in hand. Those who saw the Ivorian celebrating after last night’s win against Atletico Madrid could certainly understand the suggestion that he wants to stay.
