GdS: Kessie could depart for PSG in January as Maldini has replacement in mind

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini is pondering how to fix the Franck Kessie situation and a sale in January cannot be ruled out, a report claims.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), there is still a distance between what Milan have offered and what Kessie and his entourage are demanding. Paris Saint-Germain have a concrete interest in signing him and could make their move when the window reopens in January.

Milan’s solution to immediately replace Kessie in the event of a departure in January could actually be a player they already have control over in Yacine Adli. His signing was secured during the last summer window but he is on loan at Bordeaux until summer 2022.

The idea is to accelerate the arrival of Yacine Adli who they signed in a deal worth a total of €10m. Initially the Rossoneri wanted to bring the French talent to Milanello immediately, but as a compromise it was decided to leave him on loan until June.

Adli is currently impressing at Bordeaux and that is why Maldini and Massara may choose to bring his arrival forward, especially if they bid farewell to another important midfield piece.

    Kessie will be great at psg

      Great disappointment

    2. Vero Rossonero says:

      Yes, great on the bench. But maybe that’s OK with him, since he will be making more?

      1. Rajesh Sah says:

        Haha, yes. Just look at Dollarumma. With the recent performances, I am really happy to see Diaz and Maignan. Tonali is already proving that we won’t miss Kessie much. Hoping to watch Bennacer-Tonali more. If Bakayoko gets the form and fitness of his last Milan tenure, we would be great in midfield. Then we have Adli and Pobega.

  3. Joe101 says:

    the thing is that you’ve opted out of having Adli now because you wanted to save a few $
    wouldn’t it be a kick in the balls to bring him in January (most likely having to pay some cash to make that happen), making Messias even more irrelevant?
    + he is playing a more offensive role than Kessie

  4. Legepoly says:

    The only issue I’m having with this Milan management I expect them to sell this kasie before transfer window closed.
    Immidiately we’ll give pobega chance it would be a good bargain

  5. Barde says:

    Krunic can also be improve same as the way Kessie and Tonali, another issue we need to see Messias play against Spezia even for the last 15minutes. Moreover Toure could play many roles include Kessie’s role

  6. Casmo says:

    He should see what happen to donnaroma and stay

  7. Abdul says:

    Kessie loves Milan,but was miss lead by both his agent and some devil behind him.if he rethink and signed with lower commission he is welcome.if not the door is still open…..Milan forever insha Allah
