MN: Kessie situation reaches stalemate as Maldini eyes Ligue 1 starlet to replace him

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are already preparing for the potential exit of Franck Kessie and they are eyeing a Marseille midfielder, according to a report.

The latest from MilanNews states that Kessie has not followed up on the words he uttered during the Olympics where he was representing the Ivory Coast, in which he said that he would fix his renewal with Milan when he returned making it clear that he wants to stay.

The gap between the offer from the Milan management and the demands of Kessie and his entourage are still quite large and neither side seems willing to move forward to reach an agreement.

That’s why Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are looking with interest at a profile already linked in the summer, namely Boubacar Kamara of Marseille. The 21-year-old has a contract which is set to expire at the end of the season, so it could be a case of a free transfer to replace a free transfer, while Kamara has the added bonus of being able to play centre-back.

  1. I really don’t know what is he doing on field and why he is not in the stands already? ‘the president’ betrayed us obviously.

  2. Yes, hopefully we can get him and get rid of Kessie. I wouldn’t want him to sign even for 5M now, he should leave in January. We don’t need greedy players and agents.

  3. Forget about Kessie. He could become a legendary mid-back crafting a new chapter of ACM. He had everything here including our love but decided to abandon it to become a French champion lol. And no one knows where he ends up with this statement. Even Mbappe is rejecting to leave 45 million salary just to play for a bigger club.

  4. Kessie’s future shouldn’t have any bearing on this anyway; if Kamara is the right player then I hope he’s signed up sooner rather than later.

    Not sure how people can call Kessie ‘greedy’ in the same article as discussing a potential free signing – ultimately they’re just both players looking out for their own interests

  5. Kamara is a very interesting prospect and can play as a cb as well, which is always a bonus, specially considering Romagnoli will probably leave next year too. Also, let’s not forget we have Yacine Adli coming next season so there’s no need to spend much money in that position.

    1. We must sign kamara. It would be sad to see Romagnoli leave. As for Kessie, Pioli needs to stop playing him he’s costing us games, his head is only calculating dollars and pounds now so let’s get rid of him. He’s not even worth the last offer Maldini made. I’m eager to see how the British press will tear him up should he sign for an EPL team and this his sluggish and lethargic form continues.
