Tuttosport: Milan identify Belgium international as ideal reinforcement – €40m price set

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are planning for the future and they have set their sights on a talent from Belgium in a bid to reinforce the attack, a report claims.

The programming before the summer mercato is continuing at Casa Milan despite the obvious celebrations after winning the Scudetto, because Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara do want to be caught unprepared as they look for the right operations and opportunities to strengthen the squad ahead of a title defence and hopefully a more successful Champions League campaign in 2022-23.

Tuttosport (via SempreMilan.it) report that a very popular profile has emerged among the management in Charles De Ketelaere of Club Brugge. He can play either as a No.10 or as a centre-forward and he stands at 192cm tall, amassing 18 goals and 10 assists in 49 appearances across all competitions this season.

Due to his impressive exploits, Brugge have set their price at €40m and while that price is high, Milan really feel he is a young player with great potential but who at the same time has already experienced the big stages like the Champions League in the past season.

    1. He’s gotta superb left foot and Milan is starving for lefties.
      I’m getting Kai Havertz vibes from his highlights. He can play as a striker, behind the strikers and on the wing.
      I don’t know about the 40 mil price tag.

  1. He’s definitely a player who fits our project and would be suitable to the tactics Pioli currently employs but unless there’s a few outgoing transfers, he should be bought in an Adli type deal. Plus I don’t think that M&M would be willing to pay 40M, so that price will definitely have to be negotiated.
    De Ketelaere is a wonderful talent who should find adaptation to life in Milan fairly easy as he will have a compatriot in Saelemaekers ( possibly Origi as well ) to help with any adjustments.

  2. Some weeks ago i read some news that Leicester City and a deal almost done with Brugge to buy Ketelaere for 25 millions and some bonus!
