Two clubs above all are interested in signing Franck Kessie, a report claims, while AC Milan know exactly who they want to replace him.
Today’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) focuses on the future of Kessie, whose contract with Milan will expire on June 30. The player want €8m net per season to extend his deal and the Rossoneri management have so far not got close to that, so the Ivorian wants to wait for June before deciding the best destination.
In January he refused a move to Tottenham, postponing any choice until the summer when he might get some more lucrative offers from a salary point of view given that no transfer fee would be involved. Barcelona and Juventus are among those interested.
Milan meanwhile have already identified the replacement for Kessie as per the paper (via MilanNews), and it is current Lille midfielder Renato Sanches. The Portuguese international is represented by Jorge Mendes, the same agent who looks after the interests of Rafael Leao, who is close to a renewal with the Rossoneri and during talks it is possible Sanches was discussed.
