Real Sociedad hold serious interest in signing Charles De Ketelaere from AC Milan but they will only do so on loan with an option to buy, a report claims.
As has been reported by Sport Mediaset (via Milan News), the La Liga side are not currently pursuing an outright purchase of the Belgian midfielder which is a disappointment for Milan.
De Ketelaere is one of seven or eight players at Milan that the club would like to sell this summer, and it was notable that he played no minutes at all in the friendly against Barcelona.
Various teams have shown interest in the former Club Brugge man during the summer, but the most serious interest seems to be coming from Real Sociedad as they need to replace David Silva who has retired.
Milan have asked for €28m for De Ketelaere but it remains to be seen if they would accept a loan, given they would like to reinvest the money this summer.
