Even though there is one game left in the season Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working ahead of time in view of the summer window, with Charles De Ketelaere’s future to be evaluated.
MilanNews writes that the playmaker role should undergo changes this summer given that Daichi Kamada is almost certain to arrive on a free transfer and could undergo a medical next week.
There has been a lot of speculation about whether De Ketelaere will still be in the squad for next season. The source states that at the moment the hypothesis of a loan spell in 2023-24 has been rejected.
The idea is to retain the player and evaluate him after another preseason at the club, where he will be able to carry out adequate athletic preparation from the first day of training camp as opposed to last summer when he joined late.
He will also have less media exposure than the summer in which he landed in Milan, having joined for over €30m as the big signing of a club that had just won the Scudetto.
The plan is for him to remain therefore, but if an offer close to the €35m invested to sign him from Club Brugge came in, Milan would evaluate it.
