MN: Milan are very keen on De Ketelaere but the €35m price tag is a problem

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan are very keen on signing Charles De Ketelaere from Club Brugge but his price tag is an issue for the Rossoneri, a report claims.

As has been reported by Milan News, the Belgian Jupiler League champions want a fee of €35 million for the Belgian youngster.

The 21-year-old is one of the best players in Belgium and is attracting the attention of Milan as well as Premier League sides.

The attacking midfielder is one of the Rossoneri management’s favourite targets and they feel he fits the mould of their transfer strategy.

There is a major obstacle to the move though and that is the €35 million price tag which would be a large percentage of Milan’s transfer budget.

He made 33 appearances for Club Brugge as they clinched the title and he managed to score 14 times and get seven assists. He got one assist from his six Champions League appearances last season.

  1. 25m euro cash + bonus 5m euro already enough to sign CDK. He is hot prospect now and will double his price if join EPL club. AC Milan must move fast

  2. The problem, as usual, is that there are English clubs willing to pay that price! Our only chance of a transfer like this is the will of the player for where he wants to continue his career.

  3. I remember some clown journalist saying we had a budget of 300M..

    I said this before and i say it again

    We are not buying anyone this Mercato

    1. If people believes in such ridiculous rumors of us spending 300 mil without considering ffp constraints then they quite frankly deserves to be disapointed for being too gullible and it surely wont be the last time either.
      When that is said we will defently do the necessary upgrades to move forwards as a team but maybe it wont be the players that you or other people want but that doesnt mean we wont be improving either,

        1. No problem Vik yeah the real joke is to believe we would have such an ammount available even under investicorp as it was never gonna happen. People sets themselves up to be disapointed as they eat up all rumours and speculations raw and then when things doesnt go as they hoped they complain about the ownership(s) or whatever scapegoat they need to justify their disgruntlement when they clearly should blame themselves for believing everything they read.

          1. Just watch. Last season should have been on of the worst in history, because it came after COVID, reduced income etc. We spent almost 80M€. If you tell me it is normal to lower your budget after you win the title that as all I need to know. If Milan can’t spend 100M after they sold Hauge for 12M and got double from Puma + allegedly Gazidis did wonders. Where is the money?

          2. And if we include the transfers of Florenzi and Messias since it was concluded before the season end it is over 80M.

          3. You still base that assumption on media speculation as there to my knowledge hasnt been any official anouncements in regard of our spending power this season and why would they even disclose such an ammount when it might make negotiations more difficult as clubs could increase their demands if they realize we have more money than speculated.
            When that is said ive previously mentioned that i would expect around 100 mil available + sales and hasnt really changed that view.

    2. not buyin anyone? you wanna bet on that? we are the champion, be patience. Chill im still enjoying Milan winning Scudetto. People really are impatient. When Pioli came in Milan they said #pioliout now #piolionfire. Yes to redbird now wanna say out redbird.

  4. “If you tell me it is normal to lower your budget after you win the title that as all I need to know.”

    When the budget has been negative for a decade you do what you have to do. That is to balance the books. Once Milan returns to making profit again THEN they can start making bigger investments on players.

    Simple. Basic level economy.
