Longoni: Midfield star wants to stay and Milan have upped their offer – the figures

By Isak Möller -

Franck Kessie was a key player for Milan this past season and played all of the league games except one, due to suspension. For the first time in his career, he reached double figures with an impressive 13 goals.

The midfielder also added six assists to his name and it’s no surprise that the Rossoneri are keen on renewing his contract, which will expire in 2022. The negotiations are underway and we could soon get a conclusion.

There was distance between the parties initially but as reported by Andrea Longoni, Milan are now ready to improve their offer a lot: €5.5m per year. This should be enough to satisfy Kessie, who has made it clear that he wants to remain.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will sit down with his agent to try to reach an agreement on the renewal. Hopefully, the improved offer will be enough to seal the deal, which would be a huge boost for the club.

  1. If Milan pays 5.5 million per season for Kesie, then Maldini lied and deceived all Milan fans. Maldini is not a professional and a big liar, why do I say that, so the reason is simple, Maldini stood behind the club very responsibly, saying that no player is in front of the club !!! “And that they won’t pay anyone more than offered !!” Now I wonder why we lost Donnarumma and Colhanoglu if they could fulfill the agreement and raise the salary like now Kesie from 3.5 million to 5.5 million? For me, this is a very serious matter and I think we fans are very confused about this now. Isn’t Milan respecting his word ?? hmmm weird because it’s a great team with a great reputation, even when it is added that it was said by one of the greats Milan Maldini, I am a little worried about his honesty.

    1. Keep your opinion to yourself bro. Most of the time the spectators ( people like you) are more professional than those on the field (people like the great Maldini). I won’t surprise anymore on the opinions of fans like you but as for me, i will always stand by Milan & it’s management given how the operate with limited budget. Forza Milan

    2. You might be confused not every other Milan fan around the world.. Do you realize what it takes to reach a compromise for Key player and especially a player who really want to stay @Milan and not those who jump the wagon at the slimmest opportunity..(my bad) I don’t actually know the experience you have in football or as a director to condemn the efforts of a great Milan Legend and now an Interesting Director ‘Maldini’ (Agba Senior Player.. Eshin buruku🙌🙌🙌 to mention but few😊) .. And by the way you can follow Donna to PSG or the other guy to Inter-what’s his name again sef🤔 (who cares😜) lol.. If you are upset with my opinion come and beat me😂😂😂

    3. The problem in “Donnarumma case” wasnt his salary but the huge commission fee for Raiola….and I think theres a big difference between offer raised from 4 to million 5.5 for Kessie-no commission for his agent and salary offer raised from 6 to 10 million for Gigio + at least 15 million commission for Raiola……so I dont think that Maldini is a liar…and Calhanoglu never showed big rossoneroheart so i think it wouldnt be that big loss as lot of fans are thinking now……

    4. Well, I understand your sentiment, of course you have to right to express yourself as a bonafide Milan fan.

      Although I have great respect for Maldini and Co. for all they have done, I still believe the Donnarumma incident could have been handled differently with a more tactical approach.

      I will not even waste my time on Hakan as I feel he did us good by leaving, so we can get a better quality for that position.
      As for Donnarumma, Maldini and co. should have satisfied his demands just so he can renew, then we sell him for 60m, I think PSG would have gladly paid that transfer fee.

      Whichever way you look at it, from a business point of view, allowing Donna leave for free is complete bad business.

      1. Possibly you are right on the Donnarumma case, but he wasn’t prepared to stay.
        Everytime is contract cane up it was always a hectic battle, maybe this is for the best.
