AC Milan want to sign Charles De Ketelaere from Club Brugge and Paolo Maldini is readying the latest offer, according to a report.
According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), De Ketelaere is the name at the top of Milan’s wish list as the 21-year-old attacking midfielder is seen as the perfect fit. After the first offer of €20m plus bonuses was rejected, the Rossoneri are ready to make a new bid.
The paper adds that Milan should put around €30m on the table with the inclusion of perhaps one or two counterparts given that Brugge greatly admire some of the young Rossoneri players, such as Primavera goalkeeper Andreas Jungdal and striker Emil Roback.
Maldini and Ricky Massara want to accelerate and close the operation for De Ketelaere within ten days, if not sooner. The player has already said yes to Milan and has said no to Leeds, who have already presented a very bid offer to the Belgian club.
