Mediaset: €100m-rated duo attracting interest from abroad but Milan’s stance is clear

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have no intentions of selling either Ismael Bennacer or Franck Kessie this summer despite interest from foreign clubs.

Bennacer joined the Rossoneri last summer from Empoli off the back of a Player of the Tournament winning performance in the 2019 African Cup of Nations, and he has become an integral part of a resurgent Milan side under Stefano Pioli.

Kessie meanwhile arrived from Atalanta on a two-year loan with obligation to buy back in 2017, and he is currently playing his best football in a Milan shirt since joining.

According to SportMediaset (via MilanNews), the African duo are providing top-level performances and for this reason they have attracted the attention of several clubs.

The pair have ended up in the sights of some foreign teams, but for Milan they are both absolutely non-transferable.

MilanNews reported on Sunday night that it would take a bid of €50m to even make Milan consider parting with Kessie, while Bennacer has a release clause of the same amount which is active next summer.
