GdS: Milan have the ‘new De Bruyne’ in their sights – €30m+ will be needed to sign him

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are very interested in how Charles De Ketelaere continues to develop at Club Brugge this season, according to a report.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan are closely following the 21-year-old striker – who has already scored 17 goals (and has 9 assists) this season – as they look to add some fresh talent to their attacking department ahead of next season.

Before becoming a starting playmaker he was a centre-back because of his height but he was never a star of the youth teams, rather a late bloomer who is now showing himself to be a real talent. Today half of Europe are watching him, especially after a stellar performance against PSG in the Champions League.

He has been labelled the ‘new De Bruyne’ since he gave up tennis, but this year he mainly played as the second striker at Brugge. He knows how to finish, play a final ball, facilitate the build-up play and even drift wide.

The Belgian club have him under contract until 2024 so at least €30-35m will be required for them to sell. However, he could end up being a very worthwhile bet for whoever takes the risk, as Milan found out by investing on Fikayo Tomori and Rafael Leao among others.

  1. I think we buy him he is only going to grow and learn from 2 great strikers or unless we sign scamaca but I would like to see us sign now lang he seems very good on the ball

    1. If Milan can negotiate Lang and him for €50m, then it’s a bargain. It may mean we send Brahim back to Madrid or get him for €12m.

      Again we do not need Sanches, we have Tonali and he’s the perfect replacement for Kessie plus we have Pobega and Maldini. These guys can grow into any kind midfielder we need seeing as they’re young.

  2. He is good Investment , but too bad he cannot play as RW. If AC Milan want to invest 30m for Charles and 20m euro for noa it would be bargain but of course our budget not enough so it is just dreaming for now . I hope they can sell some unused player to get fund like castilejo,caldara, or some Primavera player. Better sell player like saelemaker,krunic,rebic too since their role Will covered by Charles and noa
