Charles De Ketelaere is expected to say yes to the loan move to Atalanta, per the latest reports. The youngster is thus getting ready to pack his bags and will be hoping to revive his career with the Bergamo side.
According to Daniele Longo of CM, Milan and Atalanta have scheduled a conference call for later today in which they will discuss the details of the operation. The salary dilemma has been solved, as the Bergamo side will cover De Ketelaere’s entire salary.
The loan will cost Atalanta €3m and there will also be a €23m buy-out clause in their favour. Milan will not have a buy-back clause but at the end of the loan, should the Bergamo side decide to exercise the clause, then they will make a small capital gain.
De Ketelaere is open to the move and his ‘yes’ is expected to arrive already during the day, as the report concludes. Milan decided to accept the loan formula as no permanent offers have arrived this summer, forcing them to evaluate this option.
