The Franck Kessie situation continues to dominate the newspaper headlines but it seems neither the player or the club are in a hurry to resolve it, a report claims.
MilanNews confirms that the Milan management are working to extend the contracts of Rafael Leao, Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer and the they have been much more straightforward negotiations than the Kessie talks as the signatures of the trio are really close, with optimism and confidence filtering from Casa Milan.
However, there is still stalemate on the Kessie issue with no steps forward or backward having been recorded in recent weeks. The talks stopped a few weeks ago because Kessie is convinced that he deserves a higher salary while Milan do not want to go beyond a certain threshold, considering all the economic problems of the current period due to Covid etc.
Kessie is focused on the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast and there are no big openings for the renewal, with the chances of him leaving on a free transfer now more and more concrete.
