Sky: Milan hoping Wednesday Belgium mission for CDK will be decisive – all the details

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will today embark on a trip to Belgium to try and finally seal the deal for Charles De Ketelaere.

Speaking on Sky (via MilanNews) last night, Peppe Di Stefano confirmed Wednesday’s ‘blitz’ to Belgium which has been organised by Milan and will start tomorrow shortly before lunch towards Brussels, from where they will then move to Bruges.

It may well be that it is not a decisive mission but they idea is to speed up the process of bringing De Ketelaere to Milan because Club Brugge have been tough to negotiate with and the situation had become a bit static.

Milan have two certainties: the first is that they want to invest a lot of money (around €30m plus bonuses for the 21-year-old) and The second is that the player has chosen Milan. Strengthened by these things, tomorrow Maldini and Massara will get on a plane and ask for the possibility of buying it at those figures.

Milan will not participate in auctions, so should it go well then Milan will close the deal in the following days, but if not then they will change their target.

  1. So yet again we’ve gone from “will definitely be done by Tuesday” to “hopeful of sealing a deal, but may not be decisive”. All of Milan’s main rivals have done most, if not all of their transfer business and their squads are training together, integrating and getting better all the time. Why are the management of this once-fine club such a joke?

    1. Their “jokes” had results : Theo Hernandez’ steal, Gigi Donnarumma’s improvement on Maignan, Saelemaekers’ steal, Kalulu’s steal, Tonali’s steal, Tomori’s steal, etc.

      They steal a lot from others club, so just believe them.

  2. siamo veramente all’assurdo, per come AC MILAN,
    (MALDINI / MASSARA) stiano gestendo l’acquisto del miglior trequartista europeo, ovvero il giovane CDK, Se è vero che il Brugges, pretende a torto o a ragione 35milioni, domandiamoci, come possiamo lasciare DE KETELAERE, al proprio destino per una differenza di 2milioni di euro. E’ pacifico che i margini per la trattativa imposti ai dirigenti dalla proprietà sono molto rigidi, per cui ; esempio elementare: potrebbero addizionare un ulteriore bonus! A questo punto chiuderemmo l’odissea, Se dovessimo perderlo, sarrebbe pura follia. Maldini e Massara sono consapevoli di tutto ciò. CARDINALE, RETROCEDIAMOLO A SEMPLICE PRETE.

  3. This dude is not even worth 25m talk more of 35m, we are simply wasting money, there is no way this dude is worth more than lang, the dude is not even the best in his team, this is a mistake, how can we throw 35m on this dude when other teams, even Roma are signing real players who changes the game and wins games single handedly…….

    Club brugge are just using Leeds to exort money from us, CDK is just like every normal young player out there, paying 35m for him is purely insane, he is not even the best player of his team, we already have Adli(who I believe is better) and Diaz on AMF and 35m is Efing tooooooo much.

    This is a mistake, Milan are just fantasized by his age and future sale, forgetting the basics of analysising how good he is, dude is not 35m good, he is 10m or 15m good and we can not be wasting this much on a raw Belgian youth who is not even the best player of his team……..

    Dybala, delofeou, Sanchez would have solved every problem and also cheaper….every team is signing game changers but we are here trying to waste 35m on a 1.93cm dude who is simply a tall Suso, just for the hope of sell on gain…..this is stupid.

    We won the scudetto and instead of getting players who fits the Milan status and can defend the cup, we are here wasting huge chunck of our transfer fee on a beligum youth who is not even the best in his league or team……I am hard Milan fan but Milan really suck in this mercato, we are just disgracing ourselves with the way we handle this mercato, everything is just in shamble…..all targets goes the other way, we settle for loan, old, rejected and washed up players just to save few millions that we still do not spend.

    Forget FFP, every club is in debt, even the companies and institution, but the way Milan is going about it shows that, we have vultures are board of directors and not club owners…..This is not the Milan I decided to support and Maldini knows that too

  4. Blah-blah-blah… doom & gloom… blah-blah-blah… doom & gloom… yada yada yada,…

    But anyway… welcome, CDK, hope finally you’ll join us!
