AC Milan have not managed to find an agreement with Franck Kessie over the renewal of his contract and will need to raise their offer again.
MilanNews confirms earlier rumours stating that there was a new meeting between George Atangana – the agent of Franck Kessie – and sporting director Frederic Massara in Bologna last night. The result was not an agreement but rather further grey smoke, and new meetings with Milan will be necessary in order to iron out the final differences.
The management and ownership know that they cannot be defeated in this negotiation as the loss of both Gigio Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu on free transfers have led some to question the choices made by those in charge of Milan.
Kessie must be renewed, otherwise the media and the fan base will scrutinise the Rossoneri for the loss of yet another crucial asset in their project. Given his deal expires in less than a year, action is needed.
