Mediaset: Chelsea, Spurs and PSG all want Milan midfielder with big contract offers ready

By Oliver Fisher -

Two English clubs have expressed an interest in signing Franck Kessie as a free agent next summer, according to a report.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have just spent the summer sat around negotiating tables over transfer targets and even though the mercato is closed, they must now do the same again to try and get Franck Kessie to renew his contract.

SportMediaset (via MilanNews) reports that there is no lack of concrete interest from clubs with regards to signing him on a free transfer at the end of the current season, if an agreement over a contract extension were not risk. Given Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu’s exits, it would be a disaster for Milan if that happened.

The Ivorian has long been in the crosshairs of Chelsea and Tottenham but the two Premier League sides did not attempt to buy him in the summer market, instead aiming to have get on a free in less than a year. Contract proposals are ready for at least €7-8m net per season, while PSG are also mentioned in the report as having interest.

    1. we can even add a release clause of 80-100m in there as well. I think everyone included would be happy with that kind of money for him :Þ

  1. Just give him the money he wants. Milan can then sell him for 50M+ next summer if they can’t afford it. I suspect if we make UCL again she should be able to afford the higher wages.

    1. That is just stupid. They need to make him the maximum offer that the club decides on and if he won’t sign throw him out of the first team. He doesn’t strike me to be a liar like Donnarumma and I think he would sign but still, he might also make up a reason that he will move to progress his career. Maybe also to PSG, a club almost without competiton, that is where you grow as a player, nothing to do with the bank account.

  2. He deserve the money he is asking for, compare him to the likes of Verratti salary wise. Verratti he is so well paid and yet Kessie is more complete than him and the other well paid midfielders. Will they be a player who we will agree deserve the money, he would be asking for. They are players which exceptions will have to be made in terms of salary cap like Kessie. Its better to keep him than lose him. I am not saying he is irreplaceable.

    1. You don’t compare it like that. Ibrahimović is a dr. of football for him, he literally brought Milan back up, not Kessie. He was there for years, played like crap before Ibra. Now he wants more money than Ibra? No way, I would rather put him in the stands and make him train with Primavera and leave.
