CM: Milan ‘very much like’ Club Brugge star after positive reports from Ibrahim Ba

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been impressed by the reports they have gotten on Club Brugge star Charles De Ketelaere and are considering a move, it is claimed.

According to a report from Daniele Longo of on Twitter, De Ketelaere is a player that the Milan management have grown to ‘very much like’ thanks to some good scouting reports from none other than former Rossoneri man Ibrahim Ba.

Ba has been on a mission in the Netherlands and in Belgium as he now works as a scout for the club, and he followed the 21-year-old attacking midfielder ‘again’ on behalf of the Rossoneri after there had been direct contact in Milano with his agents.

De Ketelaere can play either as a No.10 or as a centre-forward and he stands at 192cm tall making him a physically imposing presence. He had 18 goals and 10 assists in 49 appearances across all competitions this season, and is regarding as a top talent.

  1. I just watched a highlight video. Yes this is the guy. Would allow Pioli to play Origi out at RW or he could operate as a creative attacker in the 10

      1. To provide accurate passes/crosses to the main striker. Because it’s a team play – not everyone plays just for themselves.

  2. 1. Find ex player working in country
    2. Find popular player in country

    Bingo, you’ve got yourself a calciomercato exclusive!

  3. Now it’s the best time to get him, present and future, he’s going to cost 70 million in no time if he goes to a premier league team.

  4. De Ketelaere would be a scoop and i doubt he will be sold for less than 40 mil as there will be many interersted parties across europe. When that is said its far more likely we would be able to aquirre him than nkunku (60+mil) or nunez (80mil) and he can cover either postion and looking at the fact that pioli likes players that can cover several positions it would be an ideal transfer on that accord as well.
    I agree with the sentiment that he needs to bought now or it will be quite a different price in a short span of time.

  5. Buy him now while still 30-40m euro price. If he already on EPL club’ it Will be raise to 80m euro price. I still prefer AC Milan sign nkunku but his price too much for AC Milan , so better go for Charles that more cheaper

  6. Would be a great signing…..Let’s go Redbird let’s see what kind of club you want to become. Sign him and lock down Leao -pay him his $$$

    1. He’s more talented then Lang and most of all he’s a better character. Lang is a difficult guy, a troublemaker. Charles might be toonsoft for Serie A. It’s a bet but out of these two I would go for De Ketelaere. If he fails you can still sell him on for a high price. Lang would be very difficult to get rid of and is probably a guy who will sit his contract out if he earns enough and can’t get that money elsewhere.

  7. If we get renato sanchez, botman and origi like people say. Plus adli will arrive, maybe also Pobega will return. I doubt there will be more signings.
    Even though we would still need a CF a RW and a backup for Theo.
    I doubt we gonna have a €40-60 mil signing.

  8. CDK and Lang are two different players.

    CDK is more like Kaka, good balance, good tackling ability, hard to push off the ball.. but average passing and average finishing.

    Lang is more like Robinho, technically very good, speedy, very good finishing ability.. but passing is average, a bit selfish.

    If I have to bet on a CAM, I would prefer Renato+adli to play as a CAM, unless we change to 433..

    Antony from Ajax as RW (won’t be cheap but he would solve our RW problems for good so he is my dream transfer.

    Berardi would be a temporary solution in RW and will decline due to his age so we will get his best for 1or 2 seasons at best then we wont be able to sell him)

    For ST, Darwin Nunez definitely.
    I would hope the scudetto would allow us to have budgets enough to get them all since Elliott already promised 100mil this season. I am hoping we would get 150 mil budget this season at least.

    So Nunez and Antony is a very much possibility along with Sanchez and Botman.
